Essie Armed And Ready (+ CND Copper Shimmer)
There was once a polish called Estee Lauder Metallic Sage. I wanted (still do) more than you could believe. My friend Anneke over at Pinpoint Polish even tried to send me a bottle but unfortunately the NZ post confiscated it (curses!). When I recently saw Essie Armed and Ready I thought to myself, that looks pretty familiar. A dusty olive grey with copper shimmer? I'll bite. Plus I had a $5 reward to spend at CVS so Armed and Ready went home with me.
Bitter disappointment followed. Armed and Ready has some nice soft bronzey-copper shimmer in the bottle, I figured it would be quite subtle on the nail. It it almost invisible. I really have to look rather hard at it in order to see it. It's more grey than olive grey. This was two coats, the formula was pretty nice and fluid.
In the end, I put CND Copper Shimmer on top of it to spruce it up a bit. I like this much, much better.
Sigh. Estee Lauder Metallic Sage lemming- still not slayed :(
How about you? Do you have a long term lemming that just refuses to go away?
