Today's post is a simple swatch of a polish I bought long ago, tried on my nails instantly and made me fell out of love almost that quickly too. Anny Buttermilk Hills. A potentially gorgeous grey with sparse pink shimmer. But, do not be mistaken; in reality, this is a mere shimmery grey. No pink at all. Pink decided to stay inside the bottle, chillin' and bitchin'.
Now, I won't lie to you. Application was a breeze, two coats for full opacity. Average/speedy drying time. And yeah, let's be honest: the color is nice. A little bit like in the Frozen Queen style. With my skintone, that is. Sorry for the more tanned readers, we'll have to find another style for you.
BUT it still tastes like disappointment to me a year after. Swatched once, Buttermilk Hills sings "like a virgin", untouched ever since, while it collects dust on the shelf, poor thing. Anyone wanting to adopt it?
As an off-topic, here are two pictures of Discordia (specially for you, Jinny Jin). I wanted to take better pictures of her, but she's currently about to shed her skin. It's called ecdysis, and it causes the outer layers of her skin to become paler, almost milky, and her eyes to be opaque. This partial blindness causes her stress, so I try to leave her alone until it's done. In a few days she'll work herself out of this outer layer of skin and appear with her new and brighter skin. So I figure the waiting will be worth it!
See you around,
