It's exactly the sort of colour my mother would describe as
'a real s*** colour'
In fact, for research purposes I sent her a picture of my NOTD and asked her thoughts without resorting to bad language and she replied: "pond slime"
But then, she's a woman who likes nothing less than a shimmering burgundy on the nails.
She is an extrordinary nail technician but can be a bit narrow minded when it comes to the taupe colour family
I was going to say you either love it or hate it but I can't really decide how I feel about it...
It's probably more of a khaki than a taupe, indoors it does look like a dirty greige but if I put it next to two iconic greige/taupe's then you can see how green it actually is:
Essie chinichilly and OPI you don't know jacques either side of Distinctive
The brush is a spade shape like the Rimmel 60 second polishes and the application is surprisingly smooth and even.
These polishes aren't the cheapest at £4.99
Speaking of Rimmel polishes, if you're hankering after the MAC LE Ocean Dip nail polish from Surf Baby, I saw it today and it is almost identical to Sky High by Rimmel
That's a weird photo because it looks just blue, but believe me when I say it's pretty close to the MAC one in real life
I only got a bronzing stick from Surf Baby but am very happy with it. Post to come!
What do you think of Distinctive? To far over the ugly/beautiful line or are you liking it?
