Ginger & Liz Welcome To My Jungle

It’s no secret I’m a total fangirl when it comes to Ginger & Liz. When these girls keep bringing colors like this, I know I’ll keep being one.

I’ve heard some people say that the price of a G&L polish is a little steep. I tend to disagree – it’s $12. If you compare it against Chanel or MAC, I’d say that you’re coming out ahead already in terms of coverage and quality. Face it, Chanel and MAC give you pretty colors. I won’t deny it. However, those colors come with a steep price – Chanel at $25+ while MAC rings in at $15 – and given the quality of the polishes (can we say chippity, chip, chip, chip in less than 24 hours?), G&L already wins at $12 with a longer lasting, high glossy formula and better quality brushes.

Ginger & Liz Welcome To My Jungle is described as “a mossy green metallic with mustard and gold undertones” on the G&L site, this color looks more like an olive green on me. I really like how it just pops when in sunlight. This is one of my favorite greens I could ever own. Greens are something I’m slowly coming round to. I don’t know what’s taken me so long!

But wait…it gets even better!

Ginger & Liz Welcome To My Jungle required only 2 thin to medium coats. It also dried a lot faster than I expected. To make matters even better, it dried with a super high glossy shine. I almost didn’t need a top coat, but I wanted to wear this for a while. Ok, I wanted to wear this until Friday for when I put on my red. By the way, I’ll be featuring that red this coming Friday – it’s another Ginger & Liz shade called Boss Lady. I can’t wait until then to be able to share it with you, but in the meantime, I leave you with Welcome To My Jungle.

As always, keep clicking the images until you get the full size version. Please excuse the terrible cuticles and hang nails – I haven’t been moisturizing. Bad me.

I love how mellow and subtle this looks in the shade. It lives up to the “mossy green metallic with mustard and gold undertones” description on the Ginger & Liz site.

Put this beautiful baby out in the sunlight and BAM girlfriend brings it. I promise you this – this particular color not only looks good in this photo but she is absolutely exemplary in person. In this season of greens, I think this is one shade of green you cannot go without.

      It does remind me of Nina Ultra Pro’s Mossy Britches.

      It really is…and it goes on like a dream. G&L is my #1 favorite polish. I’m almost always wearing one of their colors.
