So remember awhile ago when there was that fake essie Astrology collection photo floating around? My polish in that (fake) collection was essie Mesmerize. I did a post on it and everything! I always thought an astrology based nail polish collection would be fun. Then…
The other day I walked into my local CVS and was immediately greeted by a large new display from Sally Hansen. It was their Cosmopolitan Beachside Astrologer collection for Summer 2015. My birthday is June 14th so I had to check out the Gemini polish.
Initially when I saw that the Gemini polish was yellow I wasn’t all that excited. BUT THEN I saw the name.
There are few things in this world I love more than limoncello. I spent a semester studying in Southern Italy and drank more than my fair share. Therefore it is fate that the polish for my astrological sign is called Gemincello. So I had to pick it up. Clearly!
Gemincello is a soft pastel yellow creme that is surprisingly wearable. The formula is good though I did use 3 coats in my swatches.
Despite not loving this polish in the bottle I really did quite like it once I put it on.
The only place I’ve seen the Beachside Astrologer collection is at CVS though I’m sure it will start showing up in other drugstores soon.
Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump! And if you’re not a Gemini I included a list of the rest of the polishes in the collection if you’re curious about your sign.
