This polish has been in my, "Please try me again before getting rid of me," box for months now, and I finally got around to trying it again. Not all polishes are love at first sight. The ones that I detest immediately get put up for swap right then. But if I suspect that the color needs another chance, I'll put it on the side and try it again another time.
The first time I tried to wear Sweet Talker, it took me three coats and it still wasn't even. I was disappointed because the shimmer that's so evident in the bottle died on the nail. I removed it in a disgusted funk and almost put it up for swap right then, but a little voice told me that it deserved a second chance. That second chance came last night, and I'm happy to say that my first application of Sweet Talker must have been largely the fault of user error. The formula is really not bad at all for a pastel, and I was able to get full coverage in two coats with no spots or streaks or dragging, using a light touch and medium coats.
I took one flash picture to try to capture the shimmer. It's there, but it's very, very subtle.
All in all, I'm glad I gave Sweet Talker a second chance. I still wish that the shimmer was more evident, but I'm quite happy with the shade of blue that it is and the application on my second go round really wasn't bad at all.
Sweet Talker is an online only retail exclusive. I got mine from Walmart's website, but I've also seen it on Walgreen's and CVS's websites.
As always, thanks for stopping by. I hope your Sunday is a good one! =)
