I bought this color on sale at Walgreen's for $2.99.
Get this......I've had it for almost 6 months and found no need to but it on, until one night, when I couldn't decide what color to apply and this one screamed "Give me a GO"...so I did. :)
"Gray by Gray"
2 coats, 1 coat of OPI top coat and 1 coat of Seche Vite
I love this color, it's a great simple gray that has a great "blue stone" kind of tone to it. I can't believe I let this sit in my un-trieds so long..LOL !
These Sally Bottles are so cute, they remind me of cute little soldiers all dressed up and standing tall.....but now I realize why I avoided using these cute little guys...the BRUSH!!!
I do NOT like this brush, it's really wide and really long and the excess polish drips from the base of the brush while you are painting the nail and makes a bloody mess. :( I know some users love these brushes and find no problems with them, but they are not for me.
Now the formula is great, no issues with application, 2 coats and it was perfect. However this is the 2nd time I've used a color from this line and both times I had bubbles.
To avoid shrinkage lately, I have been doing a double top coat method using a non-fast drying top coat and then topping it with Seche and I have found out 2 things:
1. I do not get any shrinkage in my manicures
2. My manicures last way longer, with no chipping....AWESOME! (don't forget to wrap the tips, too!)
So despite the bubbles and the horrid brush, I STILL like these polishes...when they are on sale :) LOL:)
