Nails of the Week- Lime Crime's Once in a Blue Mousse

Nails of the Week- Lime Crime's Once in a Blue Mousse

Happy Friday one and all. First off let's start with this little happy link- Kittens!

Can't go wrong with starting a post with kittens, right? Big thanks to my friend Marianna over at Impression Blend for making me smile this morning with this link. 

Cute name is cute

Ok, now that you've all looked as some adorable kittens, let's talk about nails. This week I'm trying out Lime Crime polish for the first time. I picked up two colors recently, Once in a Blue Mouse and Peaches and Cream. Both are amazing springy colors. The one I'm wearing this week is like a grayish medium vintage blue. It reminds me of a blue you'd see in some vintage floral prints paired with lace, or something like that. 

A few things about this polish--

Cutest packaging ever!

1. I had trouble with the brush. I have no idea why, maybe it was just a bad painting day, I felt like the brush was sort of unruly. Let me attempt to describe this... You know how when you paint your nails the brush usually tapers on the edges? So that way when you run the brush near your cuticles, you don't paint them up terribly. Well this brush does not really do this. It's pretty thick throughout the whole thing. It deposits plenty of opaque color on your nails, but it's sort of a mess. At least, this was my experience. 

2. The color payoff in exchange for the crappy brush was pretty worth it. When I was done painting and it looked like I was a five year old painting my nails, I was a little sad. However, when all was said and done, the color was really beautiful and is completely opaque. I used two coats to cover my nails but it was almost opaque in one coat. I am totally head over heels in love with this gray creamy blue. 

I tried to clean these up as much as I could. I'm still a little unhappy with how it looks, but hey gotta move on in life, right?

The brush of doom! Ok, maybe that's a little dramatic....

All in all, I'm loving this product.

10/10 for color and formula, and about a 6/10 for the brush. Let me know what you all think! What are you wearing on your nails? and have you tried any Lime Crime products?

These products can be a little bit hard to find. I got mine online at Urban Outfitters, but you can also buy directly from Lime Crime's website

I hope you all are having a good weekend and have a full weekend of awesomeness ahead of you! I, for one, just accidentally took a 2 hour nap. Oops!
