What’s fun about the change of seasons, in regards to nail polish, is that you get to revisit all the colors from collections of previous years that you wore when it came out, and haven’t since. Ski Teal We Drop is a polish that I loved when it was released last year with the Swiss collection, that I found out I still loved when I wore it again recently.
What I love so much about this polish is that it is a dark creme (which lends itself to be sophisticated and grown up on its own) but it’s still noticeably a dark blue. It’s really nice to have a dark polish that isn’t purple, red, or black. I’m always on the look out for the right balance of darkness and color saturation, and this has it. The color is gorgeous; it’s almost exotic in a way. It’s got the depth and darkness of a gem tone, but also reminds of the ocean at night. It’s definitely a blue leaning teal.
The formula on this polish, like most in this collection, was excellent. It was highly pigmented, smooth, and very saturated. It has that slightly thin or runny consistency that allows for you to spread the polish evenly. For polishes with this saturation and consistency, I like to put on a thick first coat, and a thinner second coat to finish everything off. I used two coats and had no issues. Decent wear as well.
Where to Buy: Online Retailers / $ 6 – $ 8
