Edit! WARNING!!!! Claire's Happy/Earthy STAINS like no other polish I've ever tried! Those with natural nails- use this polish at your own risk- take basecoat precaution!
It's been a crazy busy week at the restaurant, so I've had no time for nail art. Once I get acclimated to our "busy season", posts will resume on a more scheduled basis.
If all goes as planned today, I'll be able to bring you 2 faunadicures this week. I have 2 days off! Consecutive at that! The "price" I have to pay for this "treat" is doing an 18 hour day on Thursday.
Anyway, today I am going to bring you the mani I've been sporting for 3 days- Claire's Mood Polish in Happy/Earthy, a bright, almost neon green(s). Before I show you pictures, I have to say... I am so glad I picked up back-ups for some of these!!! I have a feeling that I'm going to love the purple, bright pink and the teal versions as much as this green.
The novelty and coolness of Happy/Earthy puts it in my top 20 favorites....Even with its suck-y formula, lousy brush, too small handle and gloopy, streaky appplication.
Unlike the reviews I've read thus far, this polish stayed gradient greens on my nails all day. My stellar, top 20 result, has more to do with my having acrylic nails rather than the good batch/bad batch scenario.
It's a shame that my camera did not pick up all the distinctive shades of green in this mani. If you look close at the cuticle, you can catch a hint of what this polish starts out as at the base of my nails...a very bright yellow green, then, working up the nail to the free edge, it gradiently changes to a very pigmented dark, grass green. My pictures only bring out 2 shades, however, I assure you- on my acrylics, it's an awesome party of transitioning greens!!!
If I had the time, I could have rocked this mani even more if I had done some fauxnading. As it is today, it's pretty much beat up and sadly, has to go. I had a lot of fun wearing this color, though. Both my outfits for Saturday and Sunday had shots of neon green incorporated into them.
Yea...this is way cool in my book.
Dozens of customers admired my "paint job" over the weekend, asking me who did the awesome airbrush work!
While running errands to day, I spotted the new scented Revlon polishes, Borghese pastels & pastel Maybellines at Rite-Aid. I only picked up Revlon, Ocean Breeze and Grape Icy, Maybelline, Pie In The Sky. The green Ruby Kisses I purchased at a BS- 3 of them for frankening purposes.
I tested both Revlons for scent...Ocean Breeze smells like deodorant soap and Grape Icy smells like grape gum.
