Beautiful fall colour! Nice formula and great coverage! 123
After googling and searching swatches online I decided that this was going to be my New Year's Eve color (paired with gold) Definitely an elegant color, but it's quite a bit darker than I was expecting. All the swatches I saw a rich, dark green/teal and when I got it and wore it,it was so dark it was nearly black. It's hard to tell from my NYE pictures if it's a black, navy or just... dark. I was disappointed in the color, but I must say it was a great formula to work with. I'm usually into bright colors, so this was a bit of a stretch for me to begin with. But the color I got definitely doesn't look as light as the color pictured above. 123
I love this unusual yet wearable color. It's chic, elegant, and fashionable. The only negative is that I found the formula a bit thick and goopy — maybe just my bottle? 123
So many adjectives for a green polish! In the bottle it looks slightly boring & very teal but on the nail...holy moly so much better!!! Firstly the formula wasn't thick so very easy to work with but also easy to get too much on the brush. This could easily be a one coater but I like to use two. It settles in nicely with a smooth finish. Top coat always adds a nice shine & depth to it.
It looks very dark in low light but you still see a hint of green. In bright light wow it is a gorgeous dark, emerald green-teal (it could just be my eyes, I see more of a stunning dark green than teal). It is a wonderful choice for a fall colour, borders on a forest green but has an elegance to the hue. This would be a great Christmas polish for those loud Christmas sweaters!! 123
