Swatches > Maybelline Express Finish | Timely Turquoise

I picked Timely Turquoise up at Walgreen's along with the shade Grape Times (swatch coming soon!) mainly b/c I had two $1 off coupons and didn't want to waste them.  Usually I don't purchases drug stores anil polishes, because it never fails that I'm sorely dissapointed in them.  Anyhow, Timely Turquoise was no exception, and netiher was Grape Times, but they were worth swatching.  Usually colors, or rather formulas that don't go over well on my fingers go to the "toe stash".  The 'Toe Stash" is a group of colors that only are worn on my toes...mainly because they look better further away from my eyes (LOL!)<---cheesy.  Anyways, seems as if the formula, as I mentioned before is the issue.  Its that same streaky, 'can't get smooth for the life of me' type of formula, which you oftentimes find with shimmery polishes of like consistiency of Timely Turquoise.  Don't get me wrong Timely Turquoise is a beautiful color, but i could pretty much tell from the bottle that I wasn't going to like it on my fingers.  We probably won't be breaking it back out until my toes come out, which will be whenever the temp decides to reach above 80.

@guidedangel It really is a pretty color, I just wish the formula was a little more smoother.
