Happy Monday! Today’s look makes use of a vintage Maybelline polish that I’ve had since at least 2005. This is Tawny underneath Formula X for Sephora’s Out of Sight.
Tawny is a rich toffee brown creme. For a polish of its age, it actually applied quite well; the consistency was a little on the sticky-thick side, and was a little annoying to work with. I could have thinned it, but it wasn’t quite that bad. The worst thing was the shedding brush. It left quite a few strands on my nails, and I wasn’t able to get all of them off. I just put more polish on top of it.
Out of Sight is gorgeous. It’s super-blingy, and nearly blinded me in the sunshine. It’s also got some golden flakies in there. This polish has the same issues that all the shredded glitter toppers have with smoothness, and I talked about that a bit in last week’s post. This one is maybe ninety percent smooth with a few jaggies.
I love the base color! It’s a warm nude and those always give me cozy feelings. 🙂
That sucks that the brush was shedding!! I would be so annoyed!!! I do love that gold topper though.
I like the warmth in it. Wow, it’s from 2005! I don’t think I have something that old in my stash, makeups, nail polish or otherwise
It’s fun to haul out some old polishes! Definitely the newer ones have better formulas, though.
Yessss, throwing it back big time. I love toffee colors!
I can’t wear those shades but it’s a pretty manicure.
The toffee base colour is right up my alley and something I would wear year round!
The gold makes it!!
I love seeing vintage polish posts! I really need to start doing these again.
I saw your mani on Instagram and I was just dying over it!!! The gold flakes really set off the caramel colored polish.
Ooh love this shade with the gold flecks!
Bummer about the brush =/. I love the topper though!
The base color is really pretty
This looks like lipstick I had in high school. I love this color!
Love this! Giving me serious vintage vibes. The nude underneath with the embellishments on top! AMAZING
Omg look at that oldie!!!
I’ve been so obsessed with nudes lately. The base color is subtle and warm.
LOVE those flakes!
I love all the gold flecks!
Those gold flakes are defo stunning. Bummer about the jagged bits. That’s the worst thing about flakes and glitter – it annoys me no end especially since I’m allergic and easily prone to hives/itching, and hurts when I scratch haha.
I couldn’t pull off this color, but I like the idea!
