Untried A-Z Challenge - Letter S

     It's time once again for the Untried A-Z Challenge! It's week 19 and that brings us to the letter S. I can't believe there are only 7 more weeks for this challenge, it has flown by but there's still time to join in if you want. Everyone is welcome and the more the merrier. 

    I've gone back to my mainstream collection of polishes this week to bring you a beautiful polish from Color Club. To be honest, I don't reach for Color Club polishes all that often, but that may be because I don't own that many. I haven't bought any in about 3 years and I think I had maybe 6 polishes from the brand until they released the new holo's at Walmart which added 12 more to my stash. Which explains why I completely forgot that Color Club came out with some duo-chrome polishes. They had an entire collection actually called the Oil Slick collection which was a limited edition collection back in 2015.

     Sorry Not Sorry is a pink to gold shifting metallic duo-chrome polish that takes on a hint of copper depending on the lighting.

    While this is a very pretty color and great for fall the formula can be a bit tricky. The consistency is really nice but wants to steak when applied thinly. A regular coat will not cause any issues and leaves behind even coverage with no VNL but not quite full opacity. Shown here is 2 coats plus top coat.

     Sadly this polish suffers horribly from brushstrokes, I avoided them by using the sponging trick I shared in my review of the Orly Pastel City Collection. I absolutely hate brushstrokes in my polish and love that I've found a way to avoid them.

     I know I must have really liked this color when I bought it but when I pulled it out of my helmer I was experiencing buyers remorse. Until I had it on my nails that is. It's actually a pretty nice color and I like the subtle color shift. I actually own two more colors from this collection and I've become inspired to pull them out and try them.

    Now its time to share my the mani fail. I mentioned last week that I've been hooked on watching Naio Nails on Youtube. Well, she always does these over the top nails with lots of bling and I've got lots of nail bling gathering dust in my nail room so feeling inspired I decided to bling up my nails.

    I definitely need practice with this, and a better way to apply them to my nails. Dipping my dotting tool into top coat and then applying the rhinestone resulted in lots frustration. Especially when it came to placing all the tiny microbeads between the larger stones. I'd like a way to be able to place them and then move them a bit if needed. I think I need to invest in some nail glue. 

    This didn't turn out quite how I wanted but it was fun to play around with my rhinestones again. And we all have mani fails whether they get shared or not, and I think they help us grow as nail artists. 

      Do you have any tips on how to apply them? What do you think of Color Club polishes? Let me know in the comments and don't forget to check out what other people picked for their letter S. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
