Sephora X Campy Swatch and Review

This is the shade "Campy" in the new Sephora X line.  I bought this a while ago, but I wasn't too excited to wear it after receiving it.  I ordered it online and it didn't look like the same color when it arrived.  In the bottle, it looks like peas.....ick...I don't really like peas.

After the first coat, it looked horrible.  It was streaky and a really gross looking green.  I actually thought it looked like a goose came and pooped on my nails.  BUT, when I threw on the second coat, it took on a different look.  As you can see in the photos, it doesn't look like the polish that is in the bottle.  The yellow in the polish doesn't show up as much with the second coat.  

One other interesting thing that happened is that throughout the day, it seemed to get darker.  Is that possible?  Maybe it's because it's cloudy outside.

 The brush with this polish seemed a little moppy.  I don't remember that with the Sephora X Secretive. I went back to read my review and I find it funny that I commented on the brush and said I liked it.  I'm not sure if this brush was cut differently, but I didn't like this one.  It didn't lay flat while I was painting and it was hard to control.  I may have to try a few more Sephora X polishes and see which brush is typical.  Now there is a great excuse for buying more...I have research to do, right?

Although this polish ended up being pretty cool, I'm not really "in love".  It's okay, but I think I could have picked a better color when I was shopping online.  They have so many awesome shades.  If you go to my Secretive post, you will see links to the different collections and finishes.

Have you picked up any Sephora X polishes yet?  I haven't seen many reviews yet.  Actually, I just saw my first one today....a pretty red!  If I find that blog, I will link it here. Thanks Elizabeth at Not Too Polished...it was Captivating Claws who reviewed Sephora X Power Hungry.

Have a good night.

    1. :) I hope I didn't scare you off. Maybe this was just a dud?

  2. If the color was Power Hungry- ruby glitter- it was on Captivating Claws. As for Campy, I think I like the green tint in the bottle. Looks totally different on.

  3. I haven't tried Sephora X yet. This reminds me of Nein Nein Nein ok fine. These dark grey-greens are everywhere it seems, which I like. :)

    1. I think Nein Nein Ok Fine is much prettier. This does have more yellow in it. Thanks for stopping by:)

  4. Wow, it is way different on. It actually looks really nice on you, and I've kind of been enjoying these olive greens lately (like Zoya Evvie), but peas...goose pooooop...and then your lovely description of the yellow on your nails from the first coat... I think I'll pass, lolol.
