Oops, I did it again. I bought a polish solely for the name and more or less hate the actual polish. Story of my (nail polish) life. But….A Room With a View is one of my all time favorite books. The movie based on the book is also pretty stellar. So I just HAD to have this polish. (Speaking of movies based on books I am seriously hoping for a Gatsby themed nail polish release from SOMEONE when that movie comes out.).
Anyway, Room With a View is a very sheer pale milky pink with gold shimmer. The base color is very similar to ever so dreadful Essie Mademoiselle. I used three coats and didn’t hate the coverage from the polish, I’m just not a huge fan of the color itself. If I want a sheer shimmery pink I’d much rather wear OPI Pink Before You Leap or OPI I”m a Princess, You’re Not! if I want an interesting nude.
This polish has potential to be a good layering polish so maybe I can find a good use for it. And truthfully it is a good “my nails but better” polish. That’s just not my style!
