That One Product You Just Love To Hate!

We're all beauty bloggers here, so I'm going to take a wild guess that there's at least one product in your stash that you love to hate. Amiright?

With the amount of things we buy, there's got to be something that looks wonderful but just doesn't do it for us.

This is mine, O.P.I's Sand In My Suit (2 coats):

It's beautiful isn't it? Definitely a mannequin hands-esque polish.

This was my very first dip into the world of O.P.I's and it was one of the first polishes I was drawn to long before I was actually blogging myself, just reading instead.

So what makes me hate it?

The formula. This put me off buying any others for well over a year. It's super thick (lawd knows why I haven't thinned it out), I mean really thick. To the point where the ball bearing doesn't move at all. The brush gets all messed up and it took forever to dry even with Seche Vite on top.

Because it was so thick the slightest knock on the side would leave a nice big gouge in my nail. It would make more sense to just remove that nail and repaint it, no? But I used to get frustrated and take the whole lot off because it usually happens on at least 2 or 3 nails.

I'm currently sitting with it over the gel overlay I currently have on my nails and so far, so good. Look at me, I've probably jinxed it.

I still hate the formula and barely wear it because of this but it's such a nice colour. I think I'm going to have a try at thinning it and if it doesn't work, I won't be too hurt over it. I don't often wear a nude nail.
