A vegan nail polish blog. A celebration of colour and light, as well as of justice for nonhuman animals.

Today’s polish is one that was described by several reviewers as looking like poop when China Glaze’s Hunger Games collection came out last March! Well, I like poopy coloured polishes, haha, so this was the one that originally interested me the most from that collection!!

However, I didn’t really end up liking this one as much as I thought I would, once it was on the nail. Don’t get me wrong, I do like it, and there’s nothing wrong with the polish. The formula is good, no complaints; these photos show two coats plus top coat. But somehow, it ended up seeming kind of “flat” to me… some might say that all creme polishes are flat in a way, but that’s not what I mean and I’m not quite sure how else to describe it… I got kind of bored of it while I had it as my mani.

I think the colour wasn’t quite “ugly” enough for me; it needs some more yellow in it or something! 😀

Actually, I think I just need to add some kind of nail art to this in order to love it – stamping on it with another “ugly-pretty” colour would be nice… Or a coppery glitter-tipped gradient! Lots of fun possibilities are coming to mind!! So, yeah, I think I really like this, just not so much all by itself!

  1. Well, it’s still elegant. You could also say it looks like cocoa or cappuccino, so I guess the adjective says a lot about the reviewer :p

    I was thrilled to find your blog! Love it 🙂

    • Good thinking! Let’s call it “Dutch cocoa”, shall we? 😀

      And thanks, I’m glad you like the blog! 🙂
