The dreaded flu has got me, so I couldn't make my YSL manicure yesterday. I had already painted the perfect picture in my head of the teal blue nail polish with the gold tips. Hey hoo, I'll have to get myself better as quickly as possible so I party with YSL Rock & Baroque nail colours.
In the meantime, to cheer myself up, while I drunk a mug of Lemsip (btw I hate Lemsip), I dug out this Model's Own polish I picked up earlier in the week. Its called Green Flash. A lime green with a touch of yellow currents and silver shimmer.
I still haven't decided whether I like green on me and I have tried many, many greens. My last go was with OPI's Jade is the New Black. Even though I got lots of compliments, I'm still undecided. Put it like this, it wouldn't necessarily be my first choice. But this green is bright, glittery and shimmery and the magpie in me was instantly drawn to it. I'm always giving greens 'one more go.'
The colour looks exactly as it is in the bottle, which is a good thing as its always a bit disappointing when you put a colour on an it looks different to whats in the bottle. Though the first coat was a tinsy winsy bit streaky (I think because of the glitter), but on the second coat it was fine and it produced this metallic foil finish look. I finished it of with Essie's Good to Go top coat.
I'm not a fan of metallic looking colours, so this green is out for me, but I do think is very pretty. What do you think?
