Zoya Chopping Block: Part 5...the final verdicts!

Okay, so we have final 2 bottles, that are on the chopping block.
Meet defendants #9 Sally Hansen "Linen Creme" and #10 N.Y.C. "Cashmere Creme".

Linen Creme







This is 3 coats...so thin!


4 coats, still slight "V.N.L."...visible nail line.






This is a nice ivory creme with a slight golden shimmer, but its 4 coats..no bueno. Yeah this one is a goner, I mean really?..4 coats?! No way. I originally bought this to do a french manicure, but now I've opted for a less "muted/cloudy" more "clean lined" french manicures, so that's it..no go on this one.

Next?!...

"Cashmere Creme"





Please excuse the state of the index finger, it was not happy about all the swatching :(

So this was 3 coats, nothing special a beautiful bright baby blue shimmer, but if I want a baby blue polish, I want a baby blue creme, not a shimmer. I actually mixed a little of "Zoya's "Snow White" into to this to make it more of a creme. But no dice.


My verdict is...Both gotta go, I have my sights set on some Zoya's and its time to "trim the fat"....hee hee...Keep it sweet!
Pin It!

@ Rebecca and Scandalous- Yes, that's the plan :)

@NY Nial Diva- Yes, the shimmer in it is gorgeous, which is why I bought it. Hopefully Sally's can make this opaque in 2-3 coats, if they do I'm sold!

I'm not loving the VNL. I like shimmer in anything so that doesn't bother me. Welcome to the blogging world. I just got your blog off of Brook. I'll be investigating more later, lol.
