IsaDora 706 In The Army

Tuesday, 30 August, 2011

I remembered seeing IsaDora cosmetics in the golden days of yore – when Walgreens was cool, ya know? I never bought any of their stuff, but I remember some of their nail polish was cool…I still never bought any. I regret it to this day.

Fast forward to me roaming around Stockholm in KungsträdgÃ¥rden (the King’s Garden) and the Galleria Mall, finding a beauty store called Kicks and suddenly seeing this green called

IsaDora In The Army Label

Interesting. I bought that and another color. I’ll feature it that this week or next!

This time I knew that I couldn’t pass up IsaDora 706 In The Army. Plus, it was a very reasonable price (for Stockholm) so how could I say no?

I am extremely glad I didn’t. It was such a joy to apply despite the small bottle and stubby wide angled brush. The bottle itself is really small – you only get 6ml (.2 fl oz). The formula is wonderful. Even with my tendency to apply polish with a heavy hand, this dried quickly and was opaque in two coats. I couldn’t get over how quickly this stuff dried! IsaDora 706 In The Army was so much faster than the Face Stockholm polishes. I’ve been dreading swatching those due to the long drying time. I think the colors are gorgeous, but the fact it takes forever to dry…makes me cool it on the Face Stockholm brand in general.

Anyway, IsaDora 706 In The Army is this gorgeous dusky, deep dark grey green. It’s military. It’s gorgeous. It’s a lovely creme – I do love cremes when they look and apply like this.

My apologies for the ghetto cuticles. I finally got a cuticle trimmer and have been a bit hesitant to use it, but I know I have to soon because my nails are looking pretty bad.

The sunlight almost washed this out, making it look less than military. However, the way this color looks in sunlight is definitely my favorite shot!

What do you think? Do you wish Walgreens/other drug stores would start to sell this brand again?
