China Glaze: Dress Me Up

This is the second polish of the China Glaze Hunger Games collection that I picked up. I had first seen the swatches online and although this shade wasn't the loudest of the selection, there was a certain charm to it that I couldn't pass up.

This shade makes me think of vintage silk roses, since this is rosy pink with a bit of brown thrown in. Also, depending on the lighting, I've noticed that this polish can end up looking more brown, like hot cocoa that has more milk diluting it. In sunlight, this polish looks more pink and classic. Definitely a more conservative or mature color to wear. Overall, I'm not too impressed with this shade, but there is something about it that I can't help but like and admire.

The formula for this was a bit thick and streaky for me. Even after three coats and a top coat, I couldn't get it to look completely smooth. So this was a bit of draw back for me since the application process was a bit more time consuming than Fast Track and Harvest Moon. I suppose if you're not the type of person to love neutral shades, I suggest passing on this one because it really isn't that unique of a color.

Next up, Harvest Moon! That should be up as soon as I can take pictures of it.
