That’s how I refer to the Divergent series of movies, the third installment of which, Allegiant, opens next weekend. I am not a fan (the young adult dystopian thing interests me not one bit) but my husband entertained a brief flirtation with the first flick. It was fine. They’re all fine. Bland and fine. Someone will love them; that someone just won’t be me.
Last year, in a nod to my husband’s for-a-time obsession, I purchased this Divergent-inspired lacquer, Dollish Polish’s One Choice. I thought with the latest movie hitting theatres, One might want to make the Choice to pick up this really lovely polish, which is still available online. Also, the last time I swatched One Choice, I had just sustained a rather nasty nail break to my ring finger, in addition to an inch-long, carpet tack-induced gash to my index finger. Needless to say, my longer nails and tidier hands now make for a better swatching base.
Released as part of Dollish’s Ultimate Fandom (Part Deux) Collection, One Choice is a sheer white polish sprinkled with blue, red, yellow and black glitter. Each colour represents a different faction within the Divergent universe, if that matters to you. But what matters to me is that this polish is super cute! Cute, and it applies (and dries) nicely. I’ve regrettably had some trouble with Dollish’s glitters in the past, but One Choice thankfully remains immune, applying smoothly in three glossy coats. A very good Choice.

Adorable polish! I love your blog too, followed and hope you wouldn’t mind following back? I have a recent nail polish post you might like 🙂
Thanks very much! And I just popped by. 😉
I’ve never seen any of the YA stuff…no Twilight, no Hunger Games, no Divergent, no Maze Runner.
Actually recently we seem to be catching up on last year’s flops (the Terminator and Fantastic Four sequel/reboots).
I am impressed by milky glitters where you can see the glitters but no VNL…
They’re all kind of crap. I watched Twilight because…well, I’m not really sure why. I guess because I wanted to keep up to date on the pop culture zeitgeist? Sure, let’s go with that! And they were horrible, the last two in particular (I watched one scene where all these gigantic wolves are standing around barking ENGLISH from behind my hands, and I was the only person in the house.)
And I’ll probably catch crap for this, but the Hunger Games movies were not good. I have no idea how that became the “legit” YA franchise. It’s stupendously ridiculous.
i thought the first movie was blah too
Right? It just had that air of “We will always be the fourth place finisher” about it.
