Hello my long lost blog! Some NOTD for you. I’ve still not found the perfect wine/burgundy shade but this one sure does come close. It is, however, somewhat of a shape shifter, you’ll see in the pics below.
CoverGirl Wine to Five has a great formula, and was almost opaque in one coat. If you had super steady hands, this would be a one coater for you! Dry time was good, and the finish is glossy and feels plastic-y, in a durable, resilient way. Only gripe is the somewhat unwieldy chunky square top, which I’m sure wouldn’t be a huge problem for some but I have some pretty angry carpal tunnels after painting a bunch of furniture, so gripping it was tricky.
In indoor light, this was a nice deep wine, with the right balance of red to purple. When taken outdoors (rainy and cloudy) it appeared more of a cherry red, and when taken with flash it went straight to a fuchsia pink! I don’t really mind, it keeps it interesting. Swatches!
Current front runner in the search for the perfect wine shade. Any suggestions from those who have found a good wine shade polish?
