A Week of Falls with Pretty Jelly: Poison Envy

Hey everybody!  I hope you're enjoying this week of famous "falls" as much as I am!  Today I have for you another beautiful Pretty Jelly polish, and this one is inspired by the biggest fall of them all:  the fall of man.  Feast your eyes on the very tempting Poison Envy!


When God created Adam and Eve, they were without sin.  He gave them a lush paradise, the Garden of Eden, as their home.  God told them they could eat anything in the Garden they wanted, except the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil; if they ate the fruit, they would die.  Satan, in the form of a serpent, approached Eve and told her that if she and Adam ate the fruit, they would not die but would become like God.  Eve looked at the fruit...it looked tasty, it was pretty, and it would make her wise like God.  She and Adam ate the fruit and immediately knew they had sinned against God.  Poison Envy is inspired by Adam and Eve's  desire for something they could not have.


Of course, we always associate envy with the color green.  Poison Envy is a slightly blue-leaning ivy green linear holo.  Hmmm, and if you think about it, the holo makes it look a bit on the reptilian side too.  But don't let that deter all you snake haters!  It's quite harmless, if you call staring at your nails whilst driving harmless. :) 


I used 2 perfect, buttery coats of Poison Envy for full, drag-free coverage. :)  I'm really loving the hint of blue in this delicious dark green.  And I'll leave you all with a food reference most apropos!



It's not REALLY poisonous, so check out Poison Envy at Pretty Jelly's Etsy shop!  Liz makes some of the loveliest holos you ever saw!  Also, be sure to like Pretty Jelly on Facebook...Liz is having a giveaway when she reaches 6K likes!  You just might not have to ENVY me anymore for having such a lovely polish!! :D

Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! :)

    1. LOL...I love food. I was rather particular about my choice of apple, too, because all apples are not created equal. :P And yes, the polish IS gorgeous!
