Is it Friday yet? Yes, thank God it's tomorrow! Today was my first day back to work since my injury. I've been off for 6 weeks. I arrived to a desk decorated with a big bouquet of flowers, balloons, greeting cards, chocolate, and other yummy treats. Ahh that was pretty awesome of my co-workers for doing this. It was a warm welcome back to work. My boss was also very happy to see me. Aside from that I had over 400 emails and a few pile of work waiting for my attention. The day went by fairly quickly and even if I didn't get much done. I'm pretty pooped. Forget about cooking tonight, I think we'll order some take out.
Charged Up is quite an interesting shade of purple with a jelly cream finish. Looks slightly dusty, dark but not too dark, and a medium balance between red and blue. This color was quite difficult to capture on camera as it was leaning more blue on my pictures. Thankfully, I was able to color correct it. Though for some reason it looks a bit more vibrant here than it actually does in person. You could probably get away with 2 coats but I think it looks best in 3 coats because some areas can appear a bit patchy. The formula isn't too thick or thin however I found that it works best when applied a thin coat at a time and allow it to semi-dry between coats. The dry time is fairly good and once it dries, it has a very nice shine to it.
PS: please excuse the uneven surface of my index finger nails. It has nothing to do with the quality or performance of the nail polish. It's my nail.
What's your favorite purple nail polish?
