Day 4 ~ How Pink Can I Go? No Repeats! ~ Flower

Posted on: August 27, 2013

Cosmo-politan by Flower is a medium pink leaning a bit coral. In some lights it looks red but it is 100% pink. It has a bit of a shimmer to it, you all know that purple shimmer that is so hard to capture with pictures? I have finally learned that no matter how much I love this color with that particular shimmer you almost always have to use an undie if you don’t want the dreaded VNL (visible nail line) showing. One of my pet peeves, so,I used an undie. 2 coats later it looks great and I can see the shimmer, I just hope you can.

Cosmo-politan by Flower Cosmetics is the full make up line endorsed by Drew Barrymore and is available only at Walmart. (Minus 1 star automatically). On the label attached to the bottle it says “we never test on animals” but the Leaping Bunny does not show that under the name Flower or the name of the company that does their distribution. I am not on a cruelty free band wagon, I am just providing you with the information I have taken the time to look up, and you can make up your own mind from there. The Leaping Bunny has a great app you can add to your phone so while you’re shopping, if you have any questions it’s right at your fingertips. They have information for all types of products, not just cosmetics.
Back to Cosmo-politan, when I first got this polish I remembered I loved it,I loved the color and I loved the shimmer and the fact that it transferred to the nail. Which I still do love that a bit of the shimmer did transfer to the nail and that doesn’t happen very often, but this is by no means a good quality nail polish. In fact I cannot think of a polish in my collection that is worse in quality than this one. When I come across it,I will let you know. I had this polish on for about three hours and I had dents and dings in it, I’d done nothing but type on my iPad and talk on the phone and Ashley stopped by. This was a fresh paint job but it looked horrible, pretty color but lousy varnish.
I’m not even going to give this one a star. It is that bad and only being available at Walmart makes it even worse.
I do not like giving negative reviews but I cannot tell you it is a good polish. I want you to have the information at hand and you can make up,your mind from there.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
