Colour in the spotlight – from rodeo to Rodeo Drive

Name: From Rodeo to Rodeo Drive

Collection & UK launch date: Urban Cowgirl, 4th August 2015 (singles 29th August 2015)

Description & personal opinion: this is a Crème taupe. Personally I think it’s more grey with tones of purple and taupe. It has a beautiful subtle silver shimmer to it.

Matching nail polish: No, alas this particular colour has been replaced by Morgan Taylor with a touch of sass, a dark red crème, UK release 1st September 2015.

Viscosity: crème base so can run quite thick in the cold, I didn’t have any issues with this though.

Application: 2/3 coats with no shrinkage or running. As this is a crème colour, if you are in a cold salon you might wish to warm the bottle before application to keep the polish thin for easy application. You can do this by standing it on a warm wheat bag, placing in a bowl of warm water or any other method you prefer.

Bottom: am I making you Gelish? Vegas nights, izzy whizzy and rough round the edges.

Longevity: no problems

Fading: I didn’t notice any fading, that being said I think in all 3 lights it looks lighter.

Removal: 8 minutes of soak off and no problem.

Similar colours: I don’t have a similar colour to this in my Gelish collection. I really couldn’t find a similar colour to this one any where so no comparison to show.

Artwork: all the colours used are from the Urban Cowgirl collection and the glitters are from the nail space.

My verdict: a new colour with good application and so a good addition to your collection. Personally this is not a colour I would ever choose myself but actually I’ve quite enjoyed this colour, a lovely autumn shade.

Next week: pumps or cowboy boots
