I feel like Drew Barrymore and I would totally be friends. We are (kind of) the same age, her daughter’s name is Olive and she’s responsible for my fear of watching sad movies. I saw E.T. in the movie theater when I was a little girl and I remember crying so hard that I never wanted to see it again. It was one of those moments as a kid you never forget. Sobbing. Why did E.T. want to go home? The finger touch put me over the edge. Getting choked up now just thinking about it. Let’s move on…
As you may have already read, Drew just launched her own line of cosmetics called Flower. Read here for more info. We picked up a few things and have been testing them out over the past few days. Last night I tried out one of the nail polishes called Go With the Flow-er. It’s a light beige opaque creme. Cremes can be tough to work with, especially lighter colored ones like this but I found it to be really nice. It wasn’t thick, didn’t pool in my cuticles and didn’t streak. I used 2 coats for maximum opacity.
Because this is a cool-toned beige, I would prefer to wear it in the summer when my hands and feet are sunkissed or else it can make my skin look bleh. Who wants bleh? Not me. This would also be a great base for some fun nail art but we all know that I ain’t even tryin’ to get with some nail art. Art + Olive = No.
The bottles are sleek and the brush is great for getting really close to the cuticle. It’s not super wide like the OPI brushes, which are a love-hate thing. This may be a little petty, but the sticker with the name of the shade on the bottom of the bottle is transparent and I have to really squint to read it. But I’ve noticed myself doing the hold-things-farther-away-and-squint-to-read
like older people do lately.
All of Flower Nail’d It Nail Lacquers are 3-free (free of DBP, toulene, camphor) and are not tested on animals. They retail for $4.98. You can purchase the entire Flower line exclusively at Walmart or on walmart.com.
