Oh back to Claire's. This was another one of their Mood polishes that I didn't think I'd like all that much. As you can plainly see in my bottle picture, It looks like "Daring" is a greyish color (and in the hot Texas sun, the bottle looked like it too), and the "Innocent" color looked like a whitish cream color. Unlike "Calm/Wild", this was a creme polish, not a glitter.
I used a base coat of Seche Natural, 3 coats of Daring/Innocent, and a top coat of Seche Vite. Imagine my surprise when I saw this.
Um what? Now granted this is in the sun, but that's no creme, that's butter yellow. The tips almost look greenish grey. It reminded me a tiny bit of a banana, but I was going to roll with it.
In the indirect sun, you can start to see more of that butter yellow/olive green color again. Now this was actually the next day (I applied it at night) and frankly, I had a bad day that day. Lots of construction type work, so the polish was starting to chip and peel just a bit.
Now here's the fun part. I went into my bathroom and ran the water. First, I used super cold water to get the "Daring" color to show up.
That is totally a weird yellow green! Not grey at ALL. I'm so confused.
Next I used some hot water (ow) to get the "Innocent" color to show up.
This color is definitely a buttery yellow, not a white cream.
I turned off the water and was able to snap a slight wet but very true picture of how my nails looked most of the day.
Overall, I was pretty happy with this one. I love my glitters, but sometimes I can love a creme too. Again, this was $5 but they seem to constantly have the buy one, get one half off deal.
