First up is Zoya Meg, a foil polish that you could, quite honestly, apply in the dark. Okay. Maybe that wasn't *entirely* honest. But my point is that Zoya's foils are so wonderfully forgiving...in fact, I tend to reach for them when I'm tired and my eyes aren't focusing quite right.
Meg is a medium grass green from the 2012 Surf collection that ensnared me completely. She is very shimmery and has a yellow undertone, but I won't hold that against her. I used 2 coats of Meg for full coverage.
Next I have China Glaze Paper Chasing, a more subtle shimmer that's a kelly green. It's the color of the legendary Crayola crayon called "Green", back when crayons were named actual color names, as opposed to "Dragon Guts" or "Fat Caterpillar" or something of that ilk.
Paper Chasing is a bit on the sheer side, so I used three coats and still had Mr. Troublemaker Who Shall Remain Nameless peeking through. For some reason, though, the VNL doesn't bother me with this polish. It's just so pretty and I can't stay perturbed at it. It's also got a great formula.
Well, if Paper Chasing was a bit sheer, Nicole by OPI Make Mine Lime is cheesecloth. Another grassy-hued hard shimmer with just a *hint* of chartreuse, Make Mine Lime is so sheer that I had to use FOUR coats to achieve the amazing lack of opacity you see before you. :)
Yet, it IS lime. It's quite summery, and the shimmer is really pretty in this. I just don't know how many people would have the patience to put it multiple coats just to assure themselves that they hadn't mistakenly reached for a topper. :/
So there you have it...three grass greens that are as different as rye, centipede, and St. Augustine. :) Are you all glad to see spring here? You are??!! UGH! WHY?!! :P
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day. <3
