Orly Gumdrop

I have to say, I was leery of the spring pastel colors that were released by everyone from Orly to China Glaze. When I finally broke down and ordered a few of the China Glaze "Up and Away" collection, I knew it was love and started scooping up every light-toned creme I could find, including several of the Orly Sweet collection polishes like this one - Orly Gumdrop.

I had high hopes for this one, I really did. My first issue was the consistency; the polish itself was thick and became streaky upon application. A few (or ten) drops of thinner helped, but it still wasn't perfect. I do have to say that the opacity was good - two coats and I was ready to roll!

Then there was the color. If anything, I would call it a dusty mint, and I'm not really sure that it fits my skin tone all that well! Have you ever had a polish where you look at it constantly, sometimes saying "yes, I can't handle this, it's fine" and other times you think "ummmmmno." That is this polish for me. I don't hate it, but I can't honestly say that I'm not sure I will be wearing this very much.

Do any of you have any so-so polishes that you aren't very sure about? Did you guys have good luck with the polish?

Happy day, all!
