Swatches > Sinful Colors | Gorgeous

I got this color pretty much on a whim at Walgreen's.  I went away for the weekend with my b/f and didn't change my polish ahead of time.  As I was packing I kept telling myself not to forget to pack a polish or two, but of course I still forgot to pack them.  I stopped in a local Walgreen's in his hometown and quickly caroused around until I found myself at the Sinful Colors section.  I first saw Aqua, which looks exactly like Gorgeous, but I think it has more of a hue of blue whereas Gorgeous has more of a hue of green.  I couldn't decide between the two, and so I pretty much just picked the bottle that looked like someone hadn't open it and tried it on. (I'm really funny about that type of thing)  I knew the formula would have that streaky-stoke look to it once applied, but nonetheless I think its a 'gorgeous' color.  I picked up a cheap bottle of Wet n' Wild clear to serve as a base and top coat, so I'll probably re-paint my nails with Gorgeous at some point and use Seche Vite or ChG Fast Forward.  I sure of it that I will get a smoother finish with those top coats than the Wet n' Wild.

Excuse the chippage on the pinky nail.  I didn't notice that until after I'd taken and imported the pics on my computer. Like I said, the Wet n' Wild Clear definitely isn't my choice of a Top Coat.  I did try to take pics of my right hand, but of course being right -handed and not ambidextrous I just couldn't get any good shots using my left hand to take pics with.

I do plan on getting Aqua so that I can compare the two shades to see what the actual difference is, so be on the lookout for swatches of that soon!
