I simply have to tell you the story of how I found this collection. As you probably know, Salon Perfect is a Wal-Mart exclusive, so you can pretty much figure it'll be a crap shoot as far as actually finding them IN a Wal-Mart. I had actually been looking for another polish, SinfulColors Graine de Poivre, which Liesl of Liesl Loves Pretty Things made me really want. Alas, no Graine de Poivre, and nothing really interesting anywhere else either, until I spotted 3 brand new Salon Perfect fall displays shoved into the back of the BOTTOM SHELF OF THE CLEARANCE SECTION, hidden away so that nobody could even see them. Ay yi yi.
Salon Perfect describes Cafe Ole as milk chocolate brown with a golden shimmer. On me, it looks more like chocolaty mud. That's not to say it's not attractive. It's terribly pretty, and the shimmer makes it glow.
I used two coats of Cafe Ole for the photos. The formula was good...a little thin but easily manageable, and with no cuticle pooling. The first coat went on patchy, but everything leveled out with the second.
I love this polish for fall! Nothing like a cup o' muddy chocolate coffee to make you long for your favorite sweater! :D
Salon Perfect polishes retail for $3.98 at Wal-Mart stores. Good luck finding them!! Be sure to check the clearance section for all the latest releases! :/
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely evening! :)
