Color Club’s Take It or Leaf It

I did not expect this color to be almost more of a cool neutral than a light lavender! It reminds me very strongly of CND’s Unearthed, which went out of stock as fast as the etailers and stores could get it back in stock for about six months straight.

Take It or Leaf It has a great formula. This could almost be a one-coater, but I didn’t want to apply the polish to heavily and risk an unknown cure time and possible smudging and slubbing. It self-levels very well - at least, when applied as a standard two-coat manicure, it behaved very well. The resulting manicure didn’t quite last me a week, but I got five full days with zero tip wear.
