Purge Wars: Battle of the Light Corals

by - 18 May

My purging continues with some more corals. Seeing as I am addicted to all shades of coral, there will be many more coral battles to come.

Into the arena goes:

Finger Paints Circus Peanuts, Rescue Beauty Lounge Starfish Patrick, Barielle Blossom

2 coats

Finger Paints Circus Peanuts is such a pretty peachy coral creme. I like how bright and opaque this is, but the formula is thicker than I like.

3 coats

RBL Starfish Patrick is a more subdued coral due to its jelly finish. It is rare that RBL polishes have application issues, so it should come as no surprise that Starfish Patrick practically applied itself. My only gripe is I would need at least one more coat or underwear for opacity.

3 coats

Barielle Blossom is so pretty, but I just cannot hang with the formula. It was so streaky and goopy that I am pretty sure I got a bum bottle. I thinned it and tried again to no avail.

Battle casualty: Barielle Blossom. I haven't been this frustrated with a polish in quite some time.

I kept a creme and jelly coral - makes sense to me. :)

 Have a great weekend!

  5. I have Blossom in my untrieds. I need to check the formula on that one. I really wanted Circus Peanuts, but based on your photos, I don't need it at all.
