Oh, my. This day is already off to a bad start. Today's color is my first from Spoiled. I cannot express how excited I was for this one! It's called Good Karma and it's a gorgeous, pearly, shimmery, dark teal. I don't really know how to classify it for you. Nail polish finishes (technically speaking) confuse the hibbity doo out of me and my tired eyes. But can we talk brushes for a sec? I know, me and my brush rants.
This one was positively horrible! By far the worst brush I have come across! Take the SH Complete Salon Manicure line's flat brush, widen it, and add more brush hairs. Oh, and then bring in a rodent to gnaw on them for awhile. If the SH brushes are like painting your nails with coffee stirrers, this was like painting them with a virtual OAR. There was no way this was going to be a "neat" mani, and it wasn't. I'm really quite sad about this. I adore some of Spoiled's colors and do have a couple more to swatch for you. But the brush is probably bad enough to keep me from buying any more unless they make a change.
Anyway, sorry for the rant. The formula was actually okay. It was a little streaky on the first coat (plus I was trying to control the brush with little success), but it evened out nicely with a second coat. The color is still beautiful. It just may be a bit difficult to get it on without a battle royale. I guess you have to decide if the color is worth the hassle. This one, for me, just might be. I see some decanting in my future.
