While I was cleaning out my pictures before The Big Laptop Wipe of '10, I found a loooot of old polish pictures I'd taken. I deleted a good number of them, but I salvaged a few of them. I won't promise that they're excellent pictures or that I did a great job with the paint, but some of them are colors that I've passed on or ones that I don't plan on wearing again.
This is one of those colors.
There was a big hubbub about Almondine when it came out. It was one that I'd quickly passed over when I bought others from the collection, but after so much fuss from other polish bloggers, I picked up a bottle.
I can see the dark flecks and super slight shimmer, and I do think that the subtle details make it neat. Neutrals and I rarely get along, though, especially neutrals that aren't at all complimentary to my skin tone.
Maybe I'm just judging everyone's favorite Almondine too harshly. What do you think? If you've reviewed this polish in your own blog, drop me a link! I'd love to see it on someone else!
