Nail Polish of the Day: CK Steele
It was incredibly hard to choose a nail polish of the day with so many new choices from my vacation, but CK Steele ($10) came out on top. A true metallic steel nail color that's rich and extremely pigmented.
With Steele being so heavily pigmented, my usual three coat "rule" was thrown out the door. The application only required two coats due to fantastic color pay-off. However, I did have a little trouble with my application and it wasn't the formula, but more so the wide fluffy brush.
Sometimes a wide brush has their disadvantages, espically in my case. Since my nail beds are rather small - a full, wide, professional brush may not be best and I found CK's brush just that - fluffy, wide and a litte hard to navigate on my small nail beds. If you notice a unusually large gap between my cuticle and the nail color, well that's becuase of the wide brush.
Crossing my fingers, hoping it's just a brush defect, which may be a good possibilty. Regardless of the brush situation, this is a fab-tastic metallic color! I have another shade coming this week that I'll be testing out.
CK Calvin Klein cosmetics are only available at Sephora.
Collections I've had forever, but haven't posted yet: Misa Poised Passion, OPI France, China Glaze Under the Mistletoe, OPI Holiday, OPI by Sephora Swatches, NFU Oh colors, Misa Fall Runway....shoowee - lots to do!
I'm going to leave ya with a little tune-age today. One of my favorite songs that I listen to compulsive-obsessively! Great song with a good meaning too - check out the lyrics.

Hi Jenny, Sephora just had it up on their site as of two weeks ago....hmmm hopefully it's just out of stock temporarily. I would try emailing Sephora first and see what they say. :)
