Flip Flop February - Favorite Polish

It's really difficult for me to choose an absolute favorite polish. I've acquired many polishes in the past year having this blog, and I actually haven't found any that I really dislike! So I went for an older one that somewhat began my polish addiction.


This polished is CG Nailslicks in Mystic Peacock. I remember buying this one years ago when a local grocery store was going out of business. Everything in the store was 75% off or more, and the beauty area had nothing on the shelf except for this polish. I was immediately drawn to it!


There were actually two left of this color, so I grabbed both. One bottle is already gone, and it's probably the first polish I've actually used up entirely! This one has about half remaining. I used it a lot, obviously. I was a nail biter for pretty much my entire life, but this polish helped change that! I figured if I had pretty polish on, it would help me kick the habit. And it did.


I would apply it just about weekly. I would use one or two coats, depending on if some thin spots showed or not. It's very opaque and covers well in one coat. But I used two for these photos and also applied Seche Vite. It's funny that I used to use this one all of the time before I was introduced to Seche Vite! I had to wait so long for it to dry, and I never saw it this glossy and smooth. 


I really love this color. I'm a big fan of blues and greens, and this teal is no exception! You can see that it's somewhat of a metallic teal, and has tiny flecks of shiny blue and green in it. It really does look like a peacock, so Mystic Peacock is a fitting name.


It's a little hard to talk about application since it's an old polish. It has gotten a bit thicker, but I tried my best at applying it. I will try to thin a bit to keep it useable though! Also, I'm not sure they even make this polish anymore, so I don't know where you can purchase it or for how much. If you find it, I recommend snagging it though!
