I wish it would stop raining! It’s been over a week of nothing but pouring rain. We’ve had maybe one sunny day in the last 10. Not wonderful for taking photos and color accuracy. But sort of fitting with how I’ve been feeling lately.
I was surprised when I noticed that this polish hasn’t been blogged about here on Death by Polish. Just because I know Lauren and I both own it. Iris I was Thinner, I actually think this name is quite funny, was from last year’s $OPI collection inspired by flowers. Right up my alley. (One of my favorite polishes, Leaf Him At The Alter, is from this collection!)
I was thinking about how I hadn’t worn a purple polish in a while. Then I thought about it and realized I have recently blogged about two other not only purples, but cremes as well. Haha, I guess I’ve been slightly aloof. Iris I was Thinner has a very nice balance of being saturated and noticeable, but not too loud. It has a certain darkness to it. The tone of this polish is really nice and is floral-y and seems very natural. I would say it’s more red based than blue.
The formula on this is also great. I only needed two coats for full coverage. I like that the finish isn’t too dense. It’s a creme, but almost one of those half creme half jellies. It goes on smooth and has a shiny, glossy finish. I always prefer when cremes have this finish and formula. You get to skip the goopy, thick formulas.
Where to Buy: Online Retailers / $ 9ish
I don’t know what it is, but my nails have been a pain lately. They have been peeling at the tips. I gave them a serious buff yesterday. And around my nails has been getting dry rather easily. I find this strange since it’s warm out now and I had NO problems when it was 20 degrees out all winter. I don’t think Lemony Flutter is doing it for me anymore. I’ve also been having serious wear issues. 😦
