Color Club Coastal Creme

I had an amazing dream a couple of nights ago. I dreamt that my aunt had returned from her one month long work stint in the UK, and she brought a lot, and I meant A LOT of polishes back for me. And I was happily arranging them according to color. I was upset when I woke up because the dream was very realistic. ):

I've been using China Glaze Fast Forward top coat. On one hand, I'm pleased with the drying time, since I've never used a fast drying top coat before. On the other hand, I absolutely HATE the smell. It gives me headaches. It's a sickly almost sweet smell, very overpowering. I'm nauseous from the smell. It's absolutely disgusting. After 12 hours I can still smell it a little. But now that I've discovered fast drying top coats (I know, which cave have I been living in?), being able to paint my nails at midnight, how can I go back to regular ones?

Anyway, the interview was a lot more complicated than I expected, but at least I managed to answer a few of the questions well. I hope. I also literally bumped into my high school classmate who was studying at the campus itself. Luckily it was someone I knew, because he was walking in a big group, and he wasn't looking where he was walking and it would've been extremely awkward if we were strangers.

I had to send my grandmother to the hospital for a check-up. The consultant orthopaedic surgeon was my mom's uncle. This probably means I can get a free consultation too :D  I also woke up at 4pm today, after sleeping for 12 hours. And I woke up too late to take my grandmother to the supermarket to buy vegetables because we're apparently out of vegetables. Woops. 

This is my first Color Club, and I am pleased with it, despite the lack of pigmentation in the polish. It had a good consistency and the brush was alright. The pictures are terrible though, so don't judge the polish by the pictures.

I did this on New Year's eve, at midnight, while the fireworks were going off. Yup. Story of my life. I originally did 3 coats but I was dissatisfied with the streaks I saw so I did another coat, even though I'd already put on top coat. So altogether that's 4 coats of the Color Club Coastal Creme and 2 layers of top coat, plus one base coat.

I guess it was the thickness that killed it, because I could see it starting to detach from the corners of my nails. Okay, note to self, paint less coats in the future.

Coastal Creme is a pale pink off-white creme. It's very light, but definitely not white. Depending on the light, it sometimes looks a bit too orange-y for me, but I liked the color overall. I did a terrible job on clean-up, so bear with me. All photos were taken in natural light.

It sometimes looks like this, which bugged me a little.

It'll be over a week before my aunt comes back, so maybe I'll have a couple more dreams about getting bucketloads of polish. I wonder if she did get my anything. Hmm.

Also, I have a game for you today! Can you guess what brand/name this color drop is?

I just realised I haven't watched a single football match since last year. Damn :/

You might have noticed that I now have a twitter button on my sidebar. Yup, got my blog a Twitter account! Now you'll know what I have on my nails at any one time, since by the time I post something, I've usually already changed my polish. 


  1. I like this color. It's almost a pretty nude.

  2. Beautiful - subtle and stunning. :) It goes perfectly with your skintone too! :)

  3. Rachel Marie - It's way more pink than nude, but it's definitely pretty (:

    Ivana - I didn't think it did, but thank you! (:
