Pink Wednesday! And Stylish Blogger Award!

Sorry for the late update today, I've been kind of busy and out of the house today.  I finally tried the China Glaze Rosita that was sent to me for review, and I thought it'd be a good color for Pink Wednesday!  So I'll show you some pics first and later I'll show you the award I was tagged for!

Unfortunately it didn't get real sunny this morning so these are taken outside, but in overcast weather!

Pretty pink!

So I have mixed feelings on this polish.  The color is fabulous.  It's a pretty, bright pink that I think would look nice with nearly any skin tone, but I had some trouble with the formula.  Normally China Glaze has a great formula, but this one was pretty watery.  I had trouble with the first coat of my left hand and didn't get things to apply smoothly until after I started using really thin coats.  Since I had to do that I ended up needing 4 coats to get this polish opaque without any spots/holes.  I wish I would've realized that from the start 'cause I tried to smear it on thick and ended up with a wonky pinky nail.

It wasn't as bad as when I tried Butter London's Teddy Girl, but still frustrating.  I didn't need too much clean-up though.  Despite it being thinner than normal CG formulas, it didn't flood my cuticles too bad.  Has anyone else tried this with similar issues?

It's such a good "pink pink" polish that I'll be keeping it and will definitely use it in the future, I'm just glad I know now to use really thin coats first!
