Sally Hansen Commander In Chic

Before I get to the Commander can I just rant for a moment? I would like to know WHY the UPS man thinks it's okay to leave my packages- my NAIL MAIL at the wrong apartment. It can't be that complicated- the doors have these weird number things on them! My neighbor has even told them it's the wrong apartment- he just doesn't care. Let me mention that I don't live in a big tall apartment building but a building with a bunch of apartments one right next to another. We are the last apartment in our building and the packages are left on the FIRST apartment- not even close! It also is conveniently the apartment closest to where the park. I think he is lazy and if I ever catch him doing this he will have a well polished foot somewhere very uncomfortable...

*deep sigh* Anyways, Sally Hansen Commander in Chic is one of those mushroomy (mmm mushrooms) taupe brown and ever so slightly purple shades I love so much. This one was a little darker than the others I own. Application was good. This is one of the Complete(ly overpriced) manicure polishes and I'm getting used to the brush as I try more of these (wide but rounder than the Insta-Dri line). This was 3 coats- probably could have been 2 if I didn't swatch so darn quick. And it was a PIA this get pictures of for some reason.

Commander in Chic- 3 coats. Dark brooding mushroom goodness.

And here is a comparison of Commander in Chic vs China Glazes Channelesque

CIC, Channelesque, CIC, Channelesque


Channelesque, CIC, Channelesque, CIC

So yeah, not as close as I expected. Commander is quite a bit darker. I can see reason for having both so there ya go ;)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I love these kind of shades. Unfortunately, I can't find them in my country :(

I think I'm getting CIC in a swap soon, I'm glad to see it's quite close to Channelesque since I'll probably never be able to get my hand on that one :)
