Last month I saw a display at Rite Aid that contained six City Color brand nail polishes. The name on the display was simply "Glo". I believe I picked up some shades from this line last Spring, but they were in larger square bottles. I've done a little Google searching, and I have no idea who manufacturers these, or who City Color is. There's nothing on the label that indicates a company or a location, and the colors themselves are somewhat nameless. The label on the back says Nail Polish, followed by Dark Green and Reddish Purple in parentheses. I'm curious to know if anyone else knows more about this brand.
The bottles are small, weighing in at only 0.170 fl. oz., and they're priced at $1.99 each. But you also get a nifty rhinestone in the cap for that price! The City Color name is actually just printed on a peel-off label. The formula seemed nice enough though, and other than a rogue brush hair that I had to cut down to size, I found that they applied nicely using two coats and they dried at a fairly quick speed.
Here's a look at the less-than-creatively-named Reddish Purple. This shade has an off black base and is filled with small reddish/purple glitter...hence the name "Reddish Purple", I guess! The off black gives it a bit of a smoky look--almost like it has a slight film over it. This is a very pretty color, and it definitely deserves a more descriptive name!
Dark Green also needs a better name, don't you think? This is a lovely turquoise shimmer that has almost a plush texture look. The shimmer is very fine, but plentiful. It's more of a blue/green while the base is a turquoise, so it seems to have some depth to it in real life that I wasn't able to capture with my camera.
My little Greta girl is missing her true love, Gus. All of the dogs normally make a mad dash for the door when I go out to take my pictures, but she's been very sad since we lost Gus last week. Today is the first day I haven't had to coax her to come out with me, so I know she's healing in time, just like the rest of us.
