Flower Cosmos-politan


Ah, Mondays.  Not fun, but what can you do?

Anyways, on that happy thought, I bring you my first Flower polish, the newly released brand by Drew Barrymore.  Not who I think of when I think mainstream cosmetics, but after trying out her polish, I'm willing to change the way I think.

Cosmo-politan is a medium blue-toned hot pink with a semi-hidden electric blue shimmer.  The shimmer is really what makes this polish special, and the blue dances in and out of vision with the sun.  While the color borders on neon, I wouldn't classify it as such; instead, Cosmos-politan is a richly pigmented hot pink creme.  

The formula was excellent and applied itself in two easy coats. 



Now here's the selling point: this polish lasted on my nails without a single chip or tipwear for four solid days.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Four whole days.  I wore this polish two weekends ago when I went to Boston, and between the train travel, lifting heavy luggage, and general non-polish friendly activity, Cosmos-politan stayed put.  I was nothing if not amazed.

A huge thanks to Adelina for picking this gem up for me at her local Walmart!  I'm super thankful to have this beauty in my collection.
