Anna Sui Nail Color in 602 Coral Orange

Oh Anna Sui Nail Color in 602 Coral Orange, why must you make it so hard for me to love you? You have so much to recommend you: a beautiful peachy color with loads of golden shimmer and teeny tiny glitters, a rose scent, and an absolutely adorable ball gown bottle design. But alas, I just don't know if it's going to work out between us. First, we have to deal with the feeling I have of being deceived by your flower-bedecked box. It is a big box, bigger then those of most of my other polishes, yet when we look closely, we see that you actually only hold 8mL rather than the 15mL of most full size polishes. And since you sport a $15 price tag, that makes you a pricier polish than my Chanel. Tell me, Anna Sui Nail Color in 602 Coral Orange, are you worth it? 

Well, let's try to move past that. I suppose I shoulder some of the blame for not looking more closely at your box after all. Let's look at your color. You are a delicate orange color and your golden shimmer is easily visible in low light and explodes into luminous glory in sunlight. Unfortunately, you are quite sheer, my dear. Even at 3 coats, there is significant VNL going on. And to be frank, your drying time leaves a bit to be desired as well, and you dinged on me after several hours. 

And Anna Sui Nail Color in 602 Coral Orange - can we talk about your scent? It's not that it's a *bad* scent, not exactly. But neither is it rose. At best, it could be described as "sweet and vaguely rose-like". It is also rather strong. My cats disapproved. I'd be careful, Anna Sui Nail Color in 602 Coral Orange. I wouldn't put it past those little monsters to "accidentally" push you off the counter as they walk by. Stay away from edges, is all I'm saying.

I think we can make this relationship work if we try hard enough. Undies would take care of the VNL issue and also help minimize the rate at which you get used up. I can't deny your beauty, both with respect to color and that ball gown bottle of yours (although just between you and me, I can't quite get the image of dish soap out of my mind when I look at your top). But there are so many other polishes out there that aren't quite as high maintainence as you, and I don't know that we wouldn't both be better off with someone else. I'm sorry, Anna Sui Nail Color in 602 Coral Orange. It's not me, it's you.
