I'm Feeling Green ... and Glittery + Update

Who has Twitter? Who has Pintrest? Well, I am the proud owner of an account on both of those websites and would love it if you joined me! 
(I linked my profile to the website names.)

Okay, onto the mani, shall we?

 Avon "Sweet Mint"  + ELF "Golden Goddess"
 
 


This type of green always draws my attention. I love how bright and eye catching it is!

Sweet Mint confuses me. This is not even close to what my mind conjures when I think "mint". I like to think I know mint pretty well, too, it being one of my favourite polish colours. This polish is in the same realm as OPI's "Who The Shrek Are You?" I should do a comparison post. I have a few that I've been meaning to do...

Application was perfect. My hand was a tad shaky when I applied this so I was a tiny bit messy around the cuticle but that's my error. If you have the opportunity to try out any Avon polishes, I highly recommend that you do! I love the brush (flat, medium-sized) and it isn't overpowering, smell-wise. Pigmentation is great too - I used 2 coats for this mani.

Golden Goddess is a beautiful gold glitter polish which consists of golden shimmer, gold micro-glitter and medium holographic glitters. I used only one coat of this to do a faint gradient starting at the free edge of my nail and fading it towards the cuticle. I wish more holo hex glitters came out onto the brush and I could have done a second coat but I like how subtle this was against such a bold colour. I did fish around in the bottle to try and get a hex glitter or two, just to make every nail even.

Off topic. I've been considering doing an update nail polish collection post and am wondering if this is something you might like to see. I know that I would LOOOVE to see all of your beautiful collections! Let me know in the comments what your thoughts are. If there are a few of us, we could put something together and all do ours together?

Don't forget, I'm on Twitter and Pintrest! Let's chat. :)

    This shade of green is never flattering on me. You make it look so cheerful, though!

    The colour looks good, but it's not really my colour I think, I do think the glitters are very pretty!

    1. Thanks for following. :)
      You're right, it's not everybody's cup of tea! The glitters are gorgeous, aren't they? I think they would look beautiful over a pastel tangerine colour, too.
