Vintage Vault - Cutex Color Quick - Slime

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, the sun stayed out here and I got some work done in the garden but not as much as I had planned as I watched the Formula One race and that took up plenty of time, it was a good race, with some good overtaking moves, although I was complaining about the rubbish commentary from sky through most of it, but hey ho, you can't have it all. :-)

Right, let's get to today's polish. I love yellow, it's my favorite colour, so I was pretty happy to find a vintage yellow Cutex, I liked it even more when I saw that it's called Slime, what a cool name for a polish, although I would've expected it to be a bit more green with that name.

This polish makes me remember why I hated painting my nails in the 90's, the formula's were pretty hit and miss and seemed to be more miss for me, I hated that polish would take forever to dry or would dry as soon as it hit my nails making it impossible to get a nice finish, this cutex is one that dries too fast, and it's just a strange formula in general.

I used three coats, the first two were dreadful looking and lumpy, and the third didn't really help matters so I gave up and threw on a thick coat of clear on top which made it look a tiny bit better. The biggest problem was that it seemed to dry instantly and didn't self-level, so I ended up with lumpy polish that I had no chance of making look good. Anyway, even though it looks awful here are my photos, please look away from the nasty cuticles.

Look at those bumpy nails! I actually really like the colour, It's a funny finish, I guess I'd called it a pearl finish, it's a creme with something extra but nothing as obvious as a shimmer. Even though I like the colour, I can't see myself ever wearing this again, but it will stay in my collection as i do love an ugly ducking.

Do you have any old polishes that are dreadful to use and you never wear them but are keeping them anyway, I'd love to know what they are and why they're still in your stash.

Cheerio for now,

Heather. :-)
