Oh SHREK!! (Pt1 of 2)

HELLO FELLOW FOLLOWERS!!

I KNOW I AM SO TARDY TO THE PARTY ON THIS ONE.  I AM SO BEHIND ON MY SWATCHING, BUT I PROMISE I WIILL CATCH UP ON SOME OF THE COLLECTIONS THAT I HAVE.  SOME OF MY POLISHES HAVE BEEN SO NEGLECTED, I FEEL AS THOUGHT I'VE LET MY AUDIENCE DOWN.  :-(  SO HANG IN THERE WITH ME CAUSE I AM SWATCHING AS FAST AS I CAN!! :-0

ON WITH THE SHOW!!

SO HERE IS THE FIRST OF THE SHREK COLLECTION... 
I ACTUALLY LIKED THIS COLOR AS ODD OF A COLOR AS IT MAY SEEM (PROBABLY BECAUSE I HAVE S SUIT AND SHOES THIS COLOR!)
IT LOOKS LIKE SPLIT PEA SOUP (I HAPPEN TO LIKE SPLIT PEA SOUP) AND I THINK SPLIT PEA SOUP WAS ACTUALLY THICKER THAN THIS NP WAS TO APPLY!
THIS IS REALLY A PRETTY NAIL POLISH (I THOUGHT SO ANYWAY) AND IT SHONE PRETTY WELL TO ME AND ALMOST CHANGED COLORS DRASTICALLY FROM SHADE TO SUN!  SHE NEEDED FOUR COATS TO BE EVEN.
I'VE SEEN THE SHREK MOVIES - EXCEPT FOR THE THIRD EDITION - I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL IT COMES OUT ON DVD BECAUSE ME AND 3D DON'T GET ALONG TO WELL.  ME GET'S MIGRAINES!!  (ARRRG!!)  I DIGRESS...
...BUT I COULD NOT FIGURE OUT FOR THE LIFE OF ME WHO RIMPLE WAS AND WHY THEY CHOSE THIS LILAC OR LAVENDER COLOR TO REPRESENT HIM. 
THIS WAS A BIT THIN TOO, BUT APPLIED PRETTY WELL. I ACTUALLY LIKED THIS COLOR AS WELL. 
I KNOW THOSE OF YOU LOOKING AT THIS COLOR ARE WONDERING 'HOW CLOSE OF A DUPE IS THIS TO DONE OUT IN DECO??'
DONE OUT IN DECO IS LIGHER (AND THICKER)

OUTSIDE PIC
I LIKED THEM BOTH COLOR WISE, BUT DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH YOU LIKE LAVENDER'S OR LILAC'S YOU MAY NOT NEED BOTH - THOUGH THEY ARE NOT DUPES, THEY ARE CLOSE ENOUGH THAT YOU MAY ONLY NEED ONE.
I HAVE NO IDEA WHY THERE IS BLUE IN REFERENCE TO AN OGRE, AS PRETTY AS IT MAY BE, THIS COLOR ASSOCIATION WITH THE CHARACTER BORE NO REFERENCE FOR ME.
SHE TOO WAS A LITTLE RUNNY, BUT PRETTY AS THE AQUA SHORE SHE APPEARS TO SHINE AS.
ALTHOUGH IT WAS RUNNY AND REQUIRED 4 COATS VS MY PROVERBIAL 3 COATS THAT I NORMALLY DO.
I HEARD THE WHEELS OF MY FELLOW FANS SAYING 'HOW CLOSE SUZY SAYS FUNG SHEY IS TO THIS COLOR'...AND TO PLEASE MY FELLOW READERS, HERE YA GO!!
AS YOU CAN SEE SSFS IS LIGHTER TO WHERE OTTB IS A SHADE DARKER AND I WOULD BE INCLINED TO SAY HAS A DUSTY LOOK TO IT.
OTTB EVEN ALSO SEEMS TO PULL A LITTLE TEAL WHEN COMPARED TO SSFS.  I WOULD BE INCLINED TO SAY THAT YOU WOULD NEED BOTH DEPENDING ON YOUR LOVE OF TEAL OR AQUA BLUES, SINCE THEIR SHADES ARE SO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, IN MY OPINION.

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT!!  THE FIRST THREE OF THE SET OF SIX.  BESIDES HOW THIN THESE POLISHES WERE - AND IT COULD HAVE JUST BEEN THE ONE'S I HAPPENED TO GET A HOLD OF, THEIR APPLICATION WASN'T TOO BAD.

WELL, THAT DOES IT FOR ME TODAY.  TOMORROW I WILL BRING YOU THE REST OF THIS COLLECTION.

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!

UNTIL NEXT TIME...HAPPY POLISHING!!
XOXOXOXO
