NOTD: China Glaze "Poetic" ♥ Romantique ♥

Today's NOTD is China Glaze Poetic from the spring 2009 Romantique collection.

This shade is a rosy bronze with a metallic-y, foil finish (like all of the colors in this collection).
I'm a little surprised here - I so expected I would love this color, only to discover that I really, really don't :(
I can't figure out exactly why, though; it's a pretty color per se, but I just don't care a teenie weenie bit for it. I'm usually a sucker for colors like these; well, not this time.
Anyway; the coverage is awesome - it's almost completely opaque in one coat. I did have some application problems. The formula was kind of thick, and also there are some visible brush strokes, which is often the downside with metallic polishes.
This is two coats, no top coat.

Daylight, cloudy, no flash

Anyone planning to pick up colors from the Romantique collection? Tell me which ones you are lemming :>

Love and beauty to y'all!
