Ugh I really don't want to go to work tomorrow. I can already tell I'm going to be tired tomorrow because I'm already up past my bedtime! But I'm still going to stay up a bit later to finish this post! lol
I wasted so much time looking at this blogsale... I found 4 polishes that I really wanted for only $17 total... great deal right? Then I went to checkout and realized shipping to Vancouver Canada from Seattle USA is $19... is it really that far that it costs $19 to ship 4 little bottles of polish?!?!?!?! EOIRGJEOARIGJOEIJGOIEAJRGIOJAGOIJERAOIGHOEIRHGOAEIHRGHREOAIGEA I'm so annoyed. I decided not to order anything because the shipping was so expensive. I'm just feeling crushed now :( I really wanted those polishes!!! </rant>
Anyway onto today's swatch. Essie Parka Perfect is a pretty soft light blue/grey color. It has some light pink/blue shimmer that is visible in the bottle but is very hard to see on the nail. I think the shimmer serves more to add depth to the polish and keep it from looking too flat rather than actually being visible. In terms of formula Parka Perfect was a bit thinner and runnier than I personally prefer but it wasn't hard to control. It was also still very pigmented despite being a bit thin and was not streaky. I used 2 coats on most nails... a few needed 3. Some of my nails are just harder to polish due to weird ridges.
I love this color... It's so soft... perfect for winter/early spring. It really makes me think of rainy days spent inside relaxing and reading a book or something :)
What do you think of this color? Do you have any tips on how to save money on shipping costs?
