Covergirl "Pyro Pink"
Hi everyone! So with the premiere of Catching Fire this coming weekend I decided to try out one of Covergirl's new line of products, which are themed from the districts. (And if you haven't read the books or seen the first movie all you really need to know is that Covergirl has a special beauty line to go with the new film Catching Fire.) I purchased all nine of the nail polishes from the line but I am just now getting around to trying them out! This week I decided to wear Covergirl's "Pyro Pink."
"Pyro Pink" is a purple and pink glitter polish. It is very shimmery and shiny and it looks really neat on my nails! The formula is okay but I had a hard time getting good brush strokes and the tips of my nails did not get covered as well as I would have liked. After two coats of polish "Pyro Pink" was not completely opaque and while it left no streak marks it was a bit see-through on my nails. As for chipping it started on day one with a few small chips and it only got worse from there. By the end of day one "Pyro Pink" was chipped beyond repair and I removed the polish. When it came time to remove this nail polish it was a nightmare! With all the glitter it did not want to come off and especially stuck to my skin! I spent quite some time trying to pry it off!
Overall while I love the color of Covergirl's "Pyro Pink" I was majorly disappointed by how quickly the polish chipped and that it wasn't completely opaque on my nails. I am willing to wear "Pyro Pink" again and maybe next time it'll last longer for me! I also hope that "Pyro Pink" does not set the tone for the other eight polishes in this collection!
Thanks for reading my blog! :)
