Pretty in pink

I apologize in advance for the picture quality. For the life of me, I cannot take good pictures of pink polishes.

Anyway, first up is China Glaze Strawberry Fields. It has a berry pink base with gold shimmer. This was released with the Summer Days collection, and it's one of those glass-flecked polishes China Glaze is so famous for.

The first pic is probably the most color accurate. Two coats, no topcoat.

Bhorgese Paradiso Pink

This is my first Bhorgese polish. I don't generally buy them because they're $8, but I got this on clearance from Walgreens for $2.79. If only I'd gone earlier; this was one of only two polishes left in the display, so they probably had all of them clearanced. I hate that I missed it!

I had been looking for a replacement for my OPI Strawberry Margarita, which I finished this past summer, and I think this is a good one. It's not a dupe, but it's a pretty bright pink creme and I know it will look great on my toes this summer.

Three coats, no topcoat.

The formula was comparable to Strawberry Margarita, and the finish was just as shiny. Overall, I was impressed and I can definitely see myself buying more. Bhorghese Almondine is one of my biggest lemmings.

Happy painting!

I got Strawberry Fields on my toes right now. On you it seems to be kind of a nude pink, on me it looks a lot more vibrant, like the bottle pic at the end of your post.

Yeah, my old camera sucked very much. I plan to re-swatch and photograph some of these old pics. It's definitely a lot more vibrant IRL. I've never tried it on my toes. Sounds pretty!
