Even though our days are still warm (we're talking highs in the 90s), it's October so I'm wearing some fall shades. I think berry is a great shade of pink for fall. It may be on the conservative side, but it's a little darker and richer as it moves us closer to the deep jewel tones of winter.
I'm wearing Grin & Berry It from the Ulta Salon Formula line. I picked it up because it was on clearance (they were changing from the rectangle bottles/black caps to the new round bottles/silver caps) and I thought I saw an orange-gold flash. That flash of color isn't really visible on the nail except slight hints of it in low lighting.
It's a berry shimmer that definitely looks best with three coats. The brush and the formula made the application really easy. I wore this for a few days this week and I had really bad tip wear, but no chipping. The shimmer and the color of Grin & Berry It is so rich that it kept playing with my camera so I could only get a decent shot of it in indirect light.
This berry shade made me think of one of the glitters in the new Wet n Wild Fast Dry polishes I just found. Yep, I was lucky enough to find a full display of On the Prowl, their limited edition Halloween 2011 collection. Here's Grin & Berry It with one coat of Correction Tape layered over it. There was slight bubbling on one nail, but nothing at all like the Party of Five Glitters bubble-fest.
I was on the fence with buying Correction Tape because of the awful time I had with Party of Five Glitters but look! There's more glitter coverage with one coat. It has hex and square glitter pieces. I even like the color combination of Correction Tape more - check out that black glitter!!
I did want more glitter on the nail, but I didn't go any farther because I already had three coats of Grin & Bear It on. Next time, I think I'll use multiple coats of Correction Tape on an accent nail or over a base color that needs less coats for full opacity.
