Twinsie Tuesday: Fugly Polish

4 Sep

It pains me a bit to say that any polish is “fugly” because someone out there likely thinks is fantastic.  The company that created it probably thinks so.  I don’t feel too bad about this one though, because it came from the dollar store.  “That mustard yellow LA Colors polish from the dollar store is my biggest lemming,” said no one ever!  See?  I can’t feel too sad about calling this fugly.

I couldn’t even find a name on the bottle.  The label on the bottom said BCC 570.  Maybe they are one of those companies that just numbers their polishes.  The pictures really don’t do it justice.  It’s really more of a honey yellow, rather than a golden yellow.  It has much more of an orange or brown tone to it than shown here.  If it were a creme, I would probably like it more, but still, only for nail art rather than an actual manicure.

The formula left something to be desired.  It applied alright, but with two coats you can see that there is still a lot of VNL and I found the formula to be a bit bubbly.  Not a fan.  It dried with an odd finish too.  Not shiny, but not matte either.  Just an awful I’ve been wearing this polish for a few days kind of sheen to it.  A top coat was absolutely required.  I topped it off with HK Girl in the hopes of making it look better.  Didn’t really work.  Glad I only paid a dollar for it.

    Yeah this is not my first choice of polish lol!

    Yeah, I find yellows in general to be difficult to love, but add “sheer” and “shimmer” to yellow and that is a sure recipe for fugly 😉

      I know. I really think I would like it more if it were a creme.

    Ugh, I am so with you on this, definitely fugly to the extreme. BTW you are so funny!

      I’m glad I can make you all laugh while you look at this hideous polish. 🙂

    Not one I would wear!

  7. Anna @ GoingtotheShowing September 4, 2012 at 4:06 pm #

    Yeah, no.

    • AllThatIsGorgeous September 4, 2012 at 4:35 pm #

      Haha!! I would not be attracted to this color!

    I don’t think it is toooooo bad, but I could never wear it in a million years.

    Hahaha.. “said no one ever.” Yeah.. I can’t decide If I like it in a weird way or don’t like it. Maybe it would be cool paired with other colors?

    • TopCoatIt September 4, 2012 at 8:28 pm #

      Yeah, I don’t think it’s a stand alone kind of color.

  10. Cordia Kell September 4, 2012 at 9:03 pm #

    I like it! Send it to me! 🙂

    “That mustard yellow LA Colors polish from the dollar store is my biggest lemming,” said no one ever! That had me cracking up. I wouldn’t get this only because I already have a yellow I’m happy with.

    The color itself isn’t horrible, it’s the sheer but shimmery formula that completely does this polish no justice. Like you said, at least it was only $1 😉

    “Said no one ever” hahaha. I second Brandi’s idea that maybe this could look nice layered with something?

    I actually think it looks lovely on you, but I totally get your reasoning for not liking it. I could never pull yellow off, so I wouldn’t even try, lol.

  15. Elizabeth September 8, 2012 at 2:45 pm #

    I could totally see this working as a creme, but yeah, semi-sheer and frosted? That’s some some excellent fug. ^_^
