FingerPaints - Chrysanthe-mum's the Word

Okay. I am being totally honest right now. This is MAYBE my most favorite polish of all time, and I just bought it a week ago.

I know! I know!!!!! How is this possible? Well, look at the pictures. This polish is from the FingerPaints spring collections, Palette of Petals. This polish brand is exclusively available at Sally Beauty. Just in case you have wondered, you do not need any sort of license to shop there. I actually never knew it was open to the public until about a year ago- silly me!

Anyway, Chrysanthe-mum's the Word (besides having a punny name) is this beautiful green color that I find hard to describe. It's more yellow and darker than any mints I have, but it does make me think of creme de menthe. I don't know, I have seen reviews of it on other polish blogs, and they're just sort of like, "Okay, another mint." To me, Chrysanthe-mum's the Word is sooooo much more than just another mint! I love it very much, and don't have anything very similar in my collection. I'm showing it in indirect sunlight and direct sunlight. I think indirect is always more accurate.

PLUS the polishes from this collection come with big flower rings!!! I forgot to take a picture, but I'm sure you can find a picture of them online. It's very cute!

I'll admit, application was a little tricky. This polish is very thick. I used two carefully-applied coats, but I had to be very patient because it's a bit gloppy. I added some thinner to the bottle after this manicure, and that seemed to help a bit. But I don't even care!!! So what, I have to take my time a little. It's worth it for this gorgeous color! It just screams "spring!" I love it, and I need to get a backup bottle ASAP.

In personal news, the Multiple Sclerosis fundraiser last night was a huge success! We raised almost $900 for the MS Society. So many people came out, and my mom was really touched by the turnout. It was fun, and for a great cause! AND ALSO, my best friend gave birth early this morning to a beautiful little boy! I can't wait to meet him on Wednesday. It's really exciting!

How was your weekend? Looking forward to anything fun this week?
