When I got into nail polish fo' realz, this polish was hugely popular. I wasn't very interested though, as I had always been into the darker, edgier colors, and to me at that time, Secret Peri-wink-le seemed almost pastel. Fast forward a few years, and I suddenly felt the urge to acquire it. And when it arrived, I was in a blues period, and it seemed perfect. So in a matter of days (short time span for me with nail polish acquisitions) I slapped it on, eagerly. And yeah... Okay. This color was invented in 2008, but production should be a lot later. And this is way more sheer than I expect from a creme shade. I needed three rather generous coats. However, it was worth it. The color is great. The alizarine in the year 2012 loves this.
Are the photos accurate in color? On my MacBook monitor they are slightly less periwinkle and more pure blue than the actual polish.
Coincidently, I had a bunch of newly arrived image plates near me, and sorta got into some stamping frenzy. I couldn't help myself and stamped away on top of Secret Peri-wink-le. I used a so called fauxnad (counterfeit Konad) plate, no. m65. The pattern is made with a rather standard dark gunmetal or charcoal grey from H&M, called Nice N' Naughty.
I still suck at stamping, but I'm getting there! And I loved this. I wore this manicure with pride.
Oh, and I'm really sorry about all the silence here over the last few months. It's not you - it's me. I still love each and every one who takes the time to read this blog. <3
