Isadora - Pistacchio swatch

Hi! Time to show my prize from Honi's giveaway, namely Isadora - Pistacchio. And yes, there are two "c" in the name, for from what I know there's only one "c" in English and Swedish so I don't understand why Isadora uses two? Any body who know or should we assume that they just can't spell? Or is there some sort of underlying Pinocchio word joke? Anyhow, let's look at the polish!

I used two coats for this and I LOVED the wide brush, fits my nails perfectly. If all brushes where like that I could stop doing clean ups like forever. Well, maybe the formula had something to do with it too, which was great too. Plus points for Isadora. :)
I think I've captured the color accurate according to my screen at least. I've tried capturing the polish in different lights so you'll get the idea of what it looks like. Again the name, Pistacchio usually signifies the color of pistachio or at least how it looks like in pastries but the polish doesn't look like that. It's too blue, too minty for that, a dark toned mint color is what it is. BUT I think I know why they might have named it like that, when capturing the polish I used flash on some shots (not included in this post because they where so not color accurate) and then the color appeared pistachio like! So maybe the one naming the polish only got a flash photo to look at?!

There's a lot of things I like with this polish, both the formula, the brush and the color that I think works all year round. What I don't like is the price which Isadora retails for in store which is 69SEK (~7,8euro/~£6,7/~$10,2) for 6ML. If they where cheaper I'd definitely would have had more of them.

  3. Oh Gelic, such a creamy goodness! I love this kind of shades (yes I like pastel shades). And if you allow me "Pistacchio" is the Italian word. As the collection is named "Bella vita" which is also the Italian expression for "Beautiful life" and all the polishes have Italian names. I think they named it "Pistacchio" because is the only Italian word that everybody knows that evokes green, regardless of the hue. just to keep the Italian theme. Well that's me playing the nail polish nerd!! LOL :D
