You win some, you lose some...

I knew this day would come but I was hoping that it wouldn't happen with one of my favorite colors BLUE! Truth be told blue can be a little touch and go on the nails. In my opinion the shade can either be fab or meant for a kid to wear. That's what happened here with OPI's Teal The Cows Come Home. I bought it at ULTA and it caught my eyes because it has silver micro glitter that you can see in the bottle, and I thought it would have a slight metallic look to it. Fail Mission, that is not the case:

This picture is taken with no flash. If you look at my ring finger you will see a very noticeable brush stroke, there are brush strokes on all my nails but very bad on this one. The application was terrible, the formula was runny, the brush holds a lot of  polish (which isn't always bad, but in this case is), and after 3 coats it still has brush lines and not an even finish. I don't like to put 3 coats on of any polish unless it is to die for and totally worth it, this one wasn't. Here's a few more pictures:

The two pictures above were taken with a flash. I'm just not sold, what do you think?
