I finally got my BL Wallis in the post from Nordies! I was really dying for this polish, but after receiving it, I'm not sure if I love it.
The finish is beautiful. It's foil-y and darkened at the edges. The formula is great; it was opaque in two coats. But I don't think the colour is flattering on my skintone. Bahhh. Since I decided only to keep polishes I love, I'm afraid I need to either take this back or swap it.
I'll at least wait for DBF's shoes to come in (somehow my polish got here faster than the shoes he ordered at Nordies) in case he needs to make an exchange as well. I'd like to take a look at the other fall BL polishes. Maybe I can find something I like better! :)
By the way, this is not a Nordstrom's exclusive. They just got the fall collection early, I think. But I've heard that Wallis was available at Ulta even before Nordies. Soooo, if this is your type of colour, and Nordies is too far, try Ulta!
Here's a bottle pic along with ChG Zombie Zest and OPI At Your Quebec & Call:
Here are the comparisons on the nail. Sorry I don't own Chanel Peridot.
Comparison: BL Wallis (2 coats) and China Glaze Zombie Zest (3 coats) - In person, the ChG is a lot more "snotty" looking. You guys all know how it looks :)
Comparison: BL Wallis (2 coats) and OPI At Your Quebec & Call (3 coats) - Similar base colour, but the finishes are completely different. Also BL Wallis is a little more yellow-greenish.
Comparison: BL Wallis (2 coats) and ChG Zombie Zest (1 coat) layered over OPI At Your Quebec & Call (3 coats) - This combination is sort of an approximation of BL Wallis. Not the same finish exactly, but if you aren't sure about this colour, maybe you can try this combo out.
I hope you guys had a good weekend. Mine was nice. DBF's family is really sweet and low-maintenance (compared to some of my friend's SO's family!). I went to Six Flags Great Adventure (the one in Jersey) with DBF's youngest brother (who is around 14, I think) and his cousin (she is late 20s) and we had a great time... although it was incredibly hot and the lines were horribly long. LOL.
We went on this roller coaster called Kingda Ka:
Here's a video I found on youtube of the front seat view:
It was amazing.
Ok, toodles! :)
