Swatch – p2 trouble

Strange how a single word can trigger memories, and not just that. Some push the play button on my internal playlist so hard it overrides what I’m listening to at that moment. I’ve started humming Bruckner while listening to alternative rock and vice versa. The word ‘trouble,’ however, is forever linked with Elvis. And I can’t even begin to describe how frustrated I was when I couldn’t understand parts of the lyrics (bloody green-eyed mountain jack, that was before you could just look them up online).
I may have tried to put Elvis’ face on my nails, but if I did it must have sucked or it would be right here in this post.

p2 trouble is a slightly muted medium green without the slightest hint of shimmer or glitter. As greens go I’d almost call this a neutral, but then again I don’t consider taupe to be neutral (a most unnatural colour that is). This polish dries a good shade darker than the bottle colour. trouble is almost opaque in two coats, but I prefer three.
Like p2 polishes usually do, trouble applied very smoothly and evenly, without any streaks. It’s fairly thick, but not in a bad way, don’t expect to be able to apply thin coats. As I’ve mentioned before, the round brush p2’s color victim polishes are packaged with works beautifully with the formula.
Both swatch photos have been photoshopped to display the colour correctly.

Here’s trouble in two coats without top coat:

And this is trouble in three coats with top coat:

I think I have some kind of blogger’s block or something. When i do think of something neat, I fail at the application. Boo.
I promise to try and do something more interesting as soon as possible.
