Bad polish, BAD!

I guess we all know it, you buy a polish, you put your faith in its beauty and it completely disappoints you. That's the story with me and this Etos nude polish.

It was my first nude(-like) color that I bought so I thought this would be great for painting sheer backgrounds. It turned out to be very unsatisfactory (I kinda like that word). It's not opaque, not ever. No matter how much I paint on my nails. I used it before, a long while ago, and I just thought I'd give it another try. But it's not just me, it's not in my head, it's the polish. See below:

Three really thick coats and you can still see the white of my nails shining through, It was way more visible in real life than on the photos. What's more is that the b*tch wouldn't dry. After a few hours of walking around with my hands in the air and being careful not to let anything touch my nails, I discovered that somehow, by some sick twist of fate, my nail had bumped into something. Okay, I may be getting a liiiittle bit overly dramatic now :-p But it was annoying the hell out of me. I had dents and scratches in my not-very-opaque polish. Plus, because I had to apply it so thick, I got bubbles. They seemed to multiply after a while. Yup, they only got worse. 

I still don't know how to photograph my bubbles but someday, I promise, you'll see them. For now, this polish goes in the do-not-use pile (which I'm starting by putting this bottle in it).
