Lacquer Lundi

Straight to the pretties:

Joe Fresh Style - Tomato
- purchased at Zehrs (chain grocery store) for $3.33 CDN

The name Tomato is not a misnomer for this juicy red beauty.  It really does evoke images of summer fresh vine-ripened tomatoes.  Unfortunately, in the northern regions of the southern hemisphere those glorious summer days are over.  But, this polish can put salsa on your tips all year long.

Tomato applied beautifully, as have all the other Joe Fresh Style polishes that I have tried.  It covered opaquely in two coats and wore well, with only minor tip wear after two days.  All in all, this line of polishes is a bargain hunters dream - nice colours, great formula and application and darn good wear, all for a small price.  Nice, nice indeed!

In a New York Color Minute - Manhattan
- purchased at Rexall (a CDN chain drug store) for $1.39 CDN

Manhattan is a deep, dark burgundy, with some serious purple leanings.  It is vampy, with a capital "V"!  This is the perfect fall colour for those of us that like a moody polish shade.

Manhattan applied well and covered fully in two coats.  It wore reasonably well, with tip wear only after two days.

Finger Paints - Putty in my Hands
- purchased at Sally Beauty Supply for $4.99 CDN

Putty in my Hands is a light brown, cafe au lait shade that...Oh, c'mon, this polish is the colour of Hartley's poop when he's had too many treats.  All together now - ewww!  Yup, I really wanted to like this one, but it looks way better in the bottle than on the nail.  Blech.

Putty in my Hands applied nicely enough, but it did take three coats for maximum opacity.  It wore well though, with only minor tip wear after four days.  Good formula - horrible colour.

Yay! Lacquer Lundi is back! And Hartley's poop? ... too funny!

I enjoyed seeing a couple of pretties and laughed at your description of "Putty in my Hands". I see enough "poop" and believe that I'll skip that one:).

Oooh, I'm gonna have to look for that Manhattan color. I love a dark dark that's not actually black. But wait, I'm not supposed to be buying any more nail polish because I never wear it. Dang.
