Lady Unluck

That would be me. But except for that, this post isn't all that unlucky. If you don't count the fact that it had to wait in the vault for quite some time, before getting published. Anyway, I know you've already seen this one before, but here it is again: H&M's Lady Luck.






Om nom nom at... could it have been three coats? Or just two? I don't remember anymore. I don't care. It's nice. And I think it was two, actually. Lady Luck is comprised pretty much in the same way the infamous Chanel Péridot is: gold foil in blue-ish base. Yet it doesn't at all look like Péridot (although it could be suspected that was what H&M initially was going for), perhaps because the base is more pigmented and therefore covers the gold more? The foil particles are of cooler tone? Honestly, I don't really care about that either, since I'm rather happy with it as it is. The result is still a mild multichrome change from warm green over a cooler green to a teal blue. Very shiny, very reflective, very handsome.

Swedish word of the day:
dam -noun lady
Primarily used for older women of somewhat upper class. (They wouldn't wear this polish.)
