Football Friday: Desert Edition

Hey all! Friday is finally here! And that means it's time for another Football Friday post! This week the Huskies head to the desert to face the Arizona Wildcats. This year Arizona has a new coach, Rich Rodriguez, formerly of Michigan. This game should be interesting. I think it'll be challenging for UW to get a win on the road and Arizona really shines offensively, while the Huskies have struggled a lot this season getting in a rhythm. However, Rich Rod isn't big on defense (and considering his background as head coach at West Virginia, this makes a lot of sense) and so I am hopeful that the Huskies do have a chance to make something happen because of that.We'll see, though. Away games are tricky beasts and so far we haven't performed well on the road.

Tonight, conveniently, I have a very pretty purple to share with you from the Cult Nails Coco Untamed Collection-- Spontaneous! Because this is an away game I'm not feeling very adventurous in terms of nail art-- I promise I will do a few more cool things in the future! Spontaneous is described as a "dark, deep and dusty purple creme with vibrant purple glitter." Spot on description, so I won't even bother trying to add anything.

Like all Cult Nails polishes, the formula on Spontaneous is really good. Unfortunately when I swatched this, I apparently didn't write down how many coats I used, but I throw out 2-3, because that's generally what I used for all the other polishes in this line and I know it's not much different here. The formula was good, but I did have a slightly wonky brush. However, Spontaneous does dry down to a matte, slightly gritty finish so you definitely need a top to make it shiny. The purple glitter is subtle, but doesn't disappear, even in low light. Spontaneous is makes for a really gorgeous, sophisticated polish with just the right amount of glitter to give it a nice pop!

The flash make the base purple look a lot more grayed out than it actually is in real life.

SHIMMER!! So pretty. I love the purple glitter. More purple glitter, people!

Go Dawgs, Beat the Wildcats!
