IsaDora 705 Combat Khaki

Tuesday, 6 September, 2011

Clearly this combat shade of green was meant to be more a battle at the beach than actual warfare. It’s a hot hot shade of not quite sea foam green with a lovely undertone that keeps it edgy, yet feminine.

I have to say, I was surprised that IsaDora 705 Combat Khaki looked halfway decent on me. Normally when shades like this come out, it looks like someone has stripped all the personality out of the color when I wear it. There is something about my skin tone that takes the prettiest of hues and tones, then just demolishes them so they resemble nothing, NOTHING like the color in the bottle.

I’m actually a little excited. In under a month I’ll be goin’ back to Cali, Cali…and I’ve packed away a few bottles of extra polish for a giveaway! In Tagalog, when you go away on trips you bring back something called pasalubong (please don’t try to pronounce it – unless you’re Filipino, of course!) – which is basically defined as a take home gift. I just say presents for you. I have some IsaDora and a couple of bottles of Face Stockholm polish, as well as some others…so stay tuned and keep an eye on here for when the giveaway will be.

I’m also excited because I ordered about 8 bottles of Cult Nails colors – I finally bit the bullet and purchased some. Sadly, I missed the discount because I’m 9 hours ahead. Curse you Central European Time! Curse you! But on the upside, I’ll have polishes waiting for me when I get home. YAY!!!

Anyway, IsaDora 705 Combat Khaki is a great blend of sea foam green with a few hints of gray and dare I say maybe a bit of olive? It’s the only thing I can think of because normally sea foam green washes me out, making my skin look sallow and malnourished – though you’d be hard pressed to believe it when you see my ass in person.

Love this color! What do you think? Is Isadora Combat Khaki something you want/already have in your collection? I feel like this is something I’ve got in my Helmer back in Cali, but I am not quite sure.

This formula dried quickly and was a dream to work with. The occasional dents in my nail are…the fast drying top coat. I know I go on about it, sorry. Application of this color is also less than stellar because it’s on my right hand – I either do really well with applying color with my left hand or I do badly. This is one of those in between things – not bad, but not good, either.
