Polish Days: Sentimental

Hello polish enthusiasts!  How is your week so far? The weather is in full fall mode here. After walking around in T-shirts in October, we have been hit by freezing temperatures yesterday. Honestly I just wanna put on some boots and some gloves and drown in a huge scarf. With a gloomy weather like this, it's not uncommon to get a little melancholic. That's why today's Polish Days theme is Sentimental. I didn't do any nail art this time and decided to do simple swatches of a polish that is very dear to me. Those who know me might be a little surprised that it's a red. Here's what I'm talking about. 

S-he Stylezone 420 indoors, artificial light
Believe it or not, this red polish is my most used one ever. I've had this bottle for almost 2 years now and I had it back when my polish collection was limited to 4-5 polishes. The reason I'm so nostalgic about it is because I can't find it anymore. In the meantime the S-he Stylezone brand changed their bottles and I never found this one again. I'm so sad because it was discontinued. This is definitely the most perfect and festive red, and it looks great on my skin tone.

The first picture shows it in my lightbox, but the true beauty of this polish comes out in direct light. It has a cool-toned red base filled with pink shimmer. The shimmer is so pretty that it almost looks like glass flecks. I've worn this for Christmas or Easter and it was my go-to polish when I didn't know what to put on.

Unfortunately my bottle is almost empty now. It might look full in the pictures, but that's just because the walls of the bottle have dry polish on them. I barely scraped the bottom for these swatches. If you know of any polishes that are available now and look like this one please let me know! But remember this is not just a normal shimmer. It literally glows!

So what do you think of this one? Am I right to be nostalgic about it? Please visit these other blogs to learn their sentimental polish stories.

  5. It's beautiful and yes, looks lovely with your skin tone. What a shame you you don't have back ups. But on the bright side, the search for a dupe will justify any number of polish purchases:) x

  15. Yes that's a great way to put it! I didn't think of backups because I had no idea they would revamp the line and stop making this.Then it was too late.
