O.P.I. You're Such a Budapest

Ugh. Daylight Savings hit me over the head with a club. I want to just crawl back into bed and sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.

However, before I do that, I want to do this pretty polish justice. I wasn't too impressed with the Euro Centrale collection when it came out (except Eurso am I not supposed to freak out about a TARDIS blue polish?) but over the course of the year I've managed to acquire three of them (starting to want Suzi's Hungary Again-what is it with me and pink all of a sudden?). I guess I appreciate collections once they're gone...not a good habit to have. 

You're Such a Budapest is a true periwinkle. A perfect combo of lavender and blue, nice and light, but really striking and bright. I love colors like this-soft, with a punch. For all intents and purposes it's a creme, but there is definitely some shimmer there. It's sparse and very shy, but present. I see small flashes of pink, purple, and bright blue.

I know Imperfectly Painted blogged about this color last month (she inspired me to pull out my bottle) and had a lot of trouble with the formula. I found my bottle very easy to work with, however. It's thin for a creme, but I didn't experience the streaking she did. This was my usual three coats with Rejuvacote and GCS on top. I can't rave enough about Duri Rejuvacote; it's done wonders for my nails. 

P.S. Excuse the ding on my thumb and the other little scratches. When you want toast at 3 a.m., wet nails won't stop you.

  1. That is just a lovely colour! It's always the way that you want something even more once its gone... Ps don't worry about the scratches I couldn't see them. :)
