Today I have a Second Look post for you, which means I have featured the polish before, but perhaps forgot about it. I decided to use it again and feature it again. Have my feelings changed? Stayed the same? Let's see!
Today's post is Rose Romantique from YSL...well, SL now. I have had this polish for about 3 years. It was gifted to me (as it is waaaay out of my polish price range) and is one of my few higher-end polishes.
One thing I forgot about this polish was how much I liked the brush! Look at how wide and flat it is! This makes application a total breeze. It's like the Nina Pro brush, if you've used that brand.
Now...as for the polish itself...
Sigh. Fail. No wonder I haven't used this!
I wanted something for my August vacation to Cape Cod that was pretty, dainty, and lightly colored enough that if it chipped (while I was petting whales on my whale watch...) that the chips wouldn't be super obvious. I thought RR was the perfect choice.
Welcome to Streak City, population of 1. LAME.
Is this meant to be a French Mani base only? Should I use more than the three coats I used here!?
Is it because my nails aren't a pearly white? Do I need a white base?!
What is going on!?
Honestly, I expected more from such a high end brand. When I applied the first coat, memories of streakiness came flooding back and I remembered why this baby wasn't living on my Favorites Shelf. Womp, womp. Back into the dark, dingy melmer it goes.
Have you tried any YSL polishes? Your thoughts?
