Today, I have some swatches of a nail polish that I purchased recently from the Dollar Tree. It's the shade I was wearing in my Tron Tutorial video as well as my Wet & Wild Night Elf Palette Tutorial video and I've been getting tons of questions about it.
I know you may be thinking "WHAT THE?!?!" when I said Dollar Tree but no lie, I've found some nice hidden treasures while browsing the polishes there! I never get the super cool holographic polishes some others have found, but I did find this old lovely greige (grey-beige hybrid) hanging from the shelves on my last peek in.
This shade is Sally Hansen New Lengths polish in Metro Creme. It's a lovely mushroomy cream color that leans just slightly military green depending on the lights. I must say I wasn't in love with the greige trend when it first came about last year, but it has since grown on me and looks quite sophisticated and work-appropriate in comparison to other trend colors that have come and gone.
Here, I added China Glaze Fairy Dust just to the tips to give it a bit more sparkle and interest. (Yes, typical of me, I know.) Fairy Dust is a holographic glitter polish that I don't use nearly enough. Love the little rainbow sparkles!
As you can see, the photo with glitter tips looks lighter but the variation is just because of the light. My photos even came out too green so I had to color-correct a bit to make it look like it does in real life. It was just not wanting to be photographed properly!
I do want to mention that Metro Creme is not big 3 free as I can see "Formaldehyde Resin" and "Dibutyl Phthalate" in the ingredients list on the back of the bottle. If you have no idea what "Big 3 Free" means you can see All Lacquered Up's post on it here. It's not something that bothers me morally, but it does mean that it may not play nice with certain base or top coats like Seche Vite (which I used anyway).
Anyway, hope you enjoyed the review and maybe you can pop into your local Dollar Tree and find the same color or something else equally as fun. ^_^
Speaking of fun, hello weather changes! Wow, there was *so* much snow here today. Here in the midwest we got hit with a pretty big stream of fluffy snow so it accumulated to about 10 inches. The bad news is that I was snowed in from work, but the good news is that I was snowed in from work! Hehe. That means I got to record a review video of the NYX Black Label Lipsticks which will be coming very soon.
Hope you are all safe and warm! Just for kicks, let me know in the comments what the most random place you've bought a nail polish is at. :D
