Happy Wednesday. Such a late post I apologise. I've completely lost track of time today and the night has just disappeared! :( but we are officially over the hump and almost at the weekend (gosh I must sound so sad counting down the days to the weekend in every post!) This week has just been so stressful and so I cannot wait to relax and have some free time to catch up on some swatching over the weekend! The other day when I did a quick dash up to the shopping centre to get a few last minute things for an outfit for Saturday night, I spotted some bargain OPIs!! Half price! I couldn't help myself but buy 2 (and that was me with self control....I really would've liked to buy the lot). So I thought it was about time I trialled a more 'daring' colour and went for the green for today's post....
OPI Green-wich Village
A slightly murky medium green...well on my skin tone at least. From reading a few other bloggers reviews of this colour I have sort of gained that it shows up differently with different skin tones. I guess that green is a sort of "risky"colour as it does tend to suit each individual differently. Though, overall everyone seems to agree that it's a very cool and unique colour, despite whether it actually suits their skin tone, and the formula is great. Slightly sheer with one coat but a perfect creme with 3.
I've always wanted this colour ever since I became a polish fanatic but could never see it anywhere (perhaps it's a little less common these days...who knows? Or perhaps I was doing my usual avoid 'way out' colours and opt straight for the safe and trusty reds). But regardless, I am finally the proud owner of this awesome colour. I'm still not even sure if I really like the shade all that much with its murkiness and "off-green" tone, but I am so glad I branched out because I love to try something different once in a while and I know it's going to come in handy with a whole lot of nail art designs I plan to do in the future!
Speaking of nail art designs, I thought it would be cute if I had a play around with my dotting tools and two other favourite green polishes, Mermaid's Tears and Gargantuan Green Grape (both OPI). Check it out:
