Ok, now that I've stressed my complete ignorance of fashion, I bet you're just so excited to see my gorgeous work! Here you go!
This is inside, without flash. I have been loving my Color Club polish in Wild Cactus from my February Birchbox! For some reason it always photographs as a blue-ish/teal color, but I assure you, it's a lovely emerald. I used Mary Kay's Gold Foil for my accent nail to complete the St. Patrick's theme! Here's another shot indoors with a flash:
|I think the green shows a bit better in this one!|
In these shots, I don't have a top coat on, but I'll let Sally Hansen's Double Duty Base & Top Coat do its very best to protect my polish. I'm not expecting much, as my manicures rarely last longer than a day. Chasing after little ones is just too much strain on my poor nails! And just because I know you're dying to see more, here's one final shot. No flash, but directly under lamplight.
|And once again, it looks blue. |
My camera and I are going to have a talk.
Just because it's bugging me that you all can't see the awesomeness of this emerald color, here is a pic of the color from Birchbox's website. All credit goes to their lovely photographers, and someone please let me know if using their pic is not ok. Definitely not wanting to infringe on any trademark, etc., but I think they'll sell more of these polishes if I can show an accurate representation of the color!
|There! Emerald Green. Told ya.|
I hope you have a wonderful evening! Where are you and your beautiful nails going tomorrow?
