sally hansen "gentle blossom"

So the other day I returned a 90$ handbag that I got on sale for 57$ because I really couldn't swing it right now.  My father told me that it would "build character".  Oh yea, I feel it building.  Anyways, to reward myself for making such an adult decision I bought myself a new nail polish. I bought this beauty for 5.50$ at Wal-Mart.

Sally Hansen "Gentle Blossom"

I would have rather have had that purse, because it was truly perfect, but this is a decent exchange.  

I did a little research on this one before I bought it.  I kept seeing it at Walgreens and passing on it.  I looked over a few swatches and decided to go for it.  I don't like spending more than a couple bucks on a polish but I made the stretch to 5.50$ because I don't have anything like it.  Except maybe Sinful Colors "Mint Apple".  MA is darker than GB, I can already see that, but they're the most similar out of my stash.

4 coats.  Light minty green with silver shimmers (=
The swatches I did view beforehand all said 2 coats.  I have NO idea how anyone could get away with 2 coats on this one, but I needed 4 and it could have honestly used a 5th!  I didn't get to wear this one for very long because I dented 2 nails and smudged 1.  That's OK though, because I well certainly wear this soon, its beautiful!
