Oh, I handled it, all right! :-) I really liked the green and the small glitter that added just a bit of a "pop." The photo is pretty much spot-on, color wise. I'd describe it as a springy grass green. Like the first leaves you see on the trees after the buds open. Oh and get this: it's shimmery. The glitters I saw were rosy pink and a lovely emerald green. Supposedly there's also yellow (gold?) glitters in there, but I didn't really notice them, maybe because of the rich green pigment? It's really quite opaque. I think I did one, maybe two coats?

Lookit all that sparkle & shimmer!! :-D The pink glitters are supposed to represent the ham, I believe. ;-) Nice 'n clever! My apologies for the weird whitish stuff at the edges of the polish...that would be my new base coat: Essie Fill the Gap. I like it, but it's not clear, so yeah... I guess in macro photos, it can be noticeable. One nice thing about it is it seems to be somewhat like those easy removal bases for glitters: I put this on on Thursday night, and by the end of the day Saturday, I think all of them had popped off on their own or I peeled them off. Granted the fact that I was helping my sister unload a 26' Uhaul might have had something to do with that! ;-)
One of the things I love most about this polish is the label WITH DR. SEUSS FONT!!! I'm a big fan of words & typography, so this is just a bit of icing on the green cake. :-) LynB has more than a few fantastic fandom collections...I also purchased a polish from her Princess Bride collection (which I will need to showcase for you soon!)
Overall, I really liked this polish. The application was good, maybe a tish of dragging, but some of that could've been due to the tiny brush making more strokes necessary & giving the brush more time to dry out when I had it out of the bottle. Plus I was trying to be uber careful - blast you, clean up!!So if you never have, or haven't already, head over to LynBDesigns' Etsy shop and look over her beauties! Oh; and like her Facebook page! She frequently advertises some great coupon codes (there's an active code for 35% off right now) - even half off!!! WOW. :O That truly makes indies more affordable for all, so hats off to her!
Since this is a non-pic-heavy post, I decided it'd be a good time to share a recent-ish photo of my Kali baby:
|Awwww! :-D Sooo tuckered (and stretched!) out! ;-)|
Thank you for reading! :-)
