I am sure I'm not the only one to have that reaction to a nail polish color. As much as we all love nail polish we have to admit we have come across colors that we hate and kick ourselves for buying.
This is how feel about a particular color. Now, before I get into it this is my personal opinion on this color. You may love this color and it may look good on you, but for me it doesn't work out.
The color I'm talking about is Misa Fleeting Hibiscus. I have 2 reasons for buying this one of them being a petty reason the other being what I thought was a valid reason. The petty reason is I love hibiscus flowers, so I was drawn to the name. The valid reason is I saw a swatch of this somewhere else and it looked way different than what I came up with!
Misa Fleeting Hibiscus
Fleeting Hibiscus can best be described as crushed up chalky Pepto Bismol stomach tablets that is mixed in with the poop from a bird who swallowed frosty eye shadow from my wacky aunt who likes to wear overly happy Christmas tree nail stickers on her nails. I'm very susceptible to the power of suggestion or I'm just a hypochondriac. I see something that reminds me of Pepto Bismol and it makes me nauseous. My mom used to shove that stuff down my throat when I was sick saying it would make me feel better, but it never did it just made me throw up. Suffice it, i to say Pepto Bismol colors literally make me queasy because of what they remind me of :P.
Ok, to be fair a more appropriate description would be... that this is a frosty-pearl baby pink. I hate this. This looks terrible on my skin tone and I think it makes my hands look sickly. This looks like frosty chalk that someone mixed in water and called it nail polish. I really don't like it. I saw a swatch of this and it looked like a brighter pink with silver shimmer. I was wrong. I shouldn't of been so impulsive to by it because of the name and with only seeing one swatch. You live and you learn. However, as much as I despise this color I'm sure it may look nice on someone, but it isn't my cup of tea. I'm sure some of you may even love this color. No worries, I will not hold it against you. We all have different tastes. :)
Is there a color you absolutely hate? What color is it?
