Anyway, I decided that if I can't be productive in my schoolwork right now, I can at least be productive in writing up a blog post, and hopefully that will help motivate me to crack open one of the several-inches-thick volumes I have sitting next to me and take some helpful notes. It is in that spirit that I bring you... Owl's Lust! This is an old Nail of the Day that I had pretty much decided not to post. Even though it's a gorgeous red shade, it was limited edition (part of L'Oreal's Project Runway collection) and I already had some serious tip-wear going on by the time I got around to taking pictures. But I was going through old pictures looking for posts I'd missed, and I decided that I should share this with you guys since I have such a soft spot for this color!
Owl's Lust has the typical L'Oreal nail polish formula, which I like just fine, but I know some people have issues with it. It wears about average on me, and I don't find it any more difficult (or any easier) to work with than most formulas. Owl's Lust looks like it might be a typical darker red shade in the bottle, but on the nail it shifts between a brick-red and muted deep wine tone, depending on the light. It's quite the chameleon!
I've got three pictures below that I think fairly accurately represent the spectrum of reds this can appear as depending on the lighting:

|Owl's Lust: more flash!|
What do you guys think? Are you sad you missed out on this? I still think "Owl's Lust" is a really awkward name for ANYTHING, much less a nail polish. Haha, it actually makes me kind of uncomfortable!
