I just recently used my best "uglyawesome" polish, China Glaze Zombie Zest, and it was too soon to go back to it already. Then I remembered I had an untried, an impulse, bargain buy I was hoping would also fall into that same category, Love Impact LP32. Unfortunately I think it may be just plain blech. But hey, either way, theme success!
I found all of nothing about this brand online, but the bottle says it's made in Korea. When I picked it up I saw the golden shimmer and possible duochrome and thought, "Eh, for a buck-twenty, I'll give it a shot." And the first coat I laid down was surprisingly pretty, a much grassier green, bright with just the hints of blueish grey and that pretty, gold sparkle. First coats can be so deceiving.
It actually looks like they couldn't decide whether they wanted to dupe Chanel Peridot or Graphite and just dumped both formulas into the same bottle, leaving it looking a little bit like both and nowhere near enough of either.
I don't know if it rises to the level of full-on fug, but it's not one I'm ever likely to wear again. Every few glances I think it's kind of unconventionally cool after all, but if it weren't for the current duochrome trend, if similar polishes weren't "in" right now, I doubt I'd feel the same way.
I feel a little bad for giving this one the big thumbs down, but them's the breaks...they can't all be made of win and skittles!
