When I start off on the wrong foot with a polish it’s really just the beginning of a relationship that never should be. *sigh* Let me start from the beginning.
One of my most anticipated polishes of this season is Orly RIP. As October is creeping up I’ve been getting super anxious. So last weekend on my way to Bath and Body Works to score my free Pumpkin Carving candle I took a slight detour and stopped at Sally’s. I was in a major time crunch so I walked straight to the “new display area” and saw some new Orly Flash Glams and noticed what I thought was RIP. I grabbed it and went straight to the register. I even sent a pic to my friend, and tweeted about what a great start to this day was….WRONG. Only to find out later that night when I finally bothered to turn the bottle over that it WASN’T RIP. The impostor polish was “So Go-Diva” ARRRRGGGHHH!! It wasn’t even a black base! The dark copper glitter in the bottle gave the illusion there was a black tinted base.
No, I did not bother returning it and I don’t plan on it since I realized I don’t have a glitter thats this dark of a copper in my collection anyways…plus I threw the receipt out to make sure of it I’m accepting this like/hate relationship I now have with So Go-Diva. I still scowl at it every time I look at it though, and think about how stupid this stupid polish’s name is. Then I get annoyed and cry even more for RIP.
So that is my sad story on how I came to own this stupid polish stupidly named So Go-Diva. So to make an attempt to accept this impostor polish into my lacquer family I decided to just wear it. Since I was still wearing my previous mani of Revlon Wicked Star I figured I’d just use it as a top coat over this green that I love so much.
What kinda of mani did So Go-Diva give me? Crap…literally poop on my fingernails. Who would have thought green and dark brown would make me think of dog poop? It’s kinda obvious now I know…but I was thinking more like “nature-y” colors when looking at them separately.
Here’s my poop…they’re more like poop pellets, but I’m sure you get the picture.
This is not the last of So Go-diva you will see on Lacquer Me Silly. I have plans for a different mani that should work out better. Unless it defeats me in that mani too…then just forget it.
