Swatch: Cecile 77

I'm a sucker for minty greens. I just keep buying them, regardless of whether I have something similar already or not. One such purchase (and one of the better ones), is Cecile 77, which I picked up in Istanbul. It was quite a steal. On top of being a fabulous colour, it was 0.99TL which translates to about 60 cents Canadian at the time. Hah! Love it! Here's the pics:
Bad lighting

Better lighting.
 This is more accurate. Hurrah lights in the bathroom!

Nice right?
This one is actually unique compared to the other ones like this I have. You can't see it in the bottle, but on the nail it has this lovely hidden shimmer. It's also SUPER quick dry and has yet to chip after 3 days. It's opaque in two coats but I had bald spots on a couple nails so I added another. I had a couple issues with bubbles because they're impossible to pop or brush off once they're on the nail. I checked the brush every time. I also don't know if ALL Cecile polishes are bubbly, or because mine traveled from Istanbul to Vancouver over the course of two weeks.

My verdict is that I LOVE this. Definitely worth it. Super quick dry, and I forgive it the bubbles because it traveled a long way with me. <3! It's also gonna be the base for something fantabulous ;)
