NFU Oh 56 and Finger Paints Harvest Hues

Tuesday, 24 August, 2010

I finally raided my stash of NFU Ohs and decided to swatch some more. I have yet to swatch the holos…been very unmotivated. Even with the new arrivals of nail polish, I feel a bit…meh about doing it. I get a bit tired of running it through Photoshop and maybe I shouldn’t watermark it, but something tells me to keep doing it whether I like it or not.

Anyway, this fabulous green glitter…where can I start? From the first stroke…well, first let me back pedal a moment: I am currently in the Bay Area and I know Wicked is closing in the beginning of September. I saw it back in May with my BFF Judi and the lyrics have been stuck in my head (interspersed with some Metallica, the Smiths, Madonna and the Dixie Chicks – don’t ask). Anyway, as I was putting this on this color, some lyrics from Wicked ran through my head:

“Have another drink, my dark-eyed beauty
I’ve got one more night left, here in town
So have another drink of green elixir
And we’ll have ourselves a little mixer
Have another swallow, little lady,
And follow me down…”

Ok, so for some reason, this color reminded me of the green elixir from Wicked. Yes, my dorkdom knows absolutely NO bounds. But for you Wicked fans (or stans) out there, I don’t think it’s much of a stretch, is it?

Formula: dried fast, but was pretty sheer. These are 3 coats of the color on my nail. I do like this and I will be wearing it for Halloween. Heck, forget Halloween…just going to start now. 😉

This color practically glowed in the shade. It was a bit mystical but oh so lovely.

The sun couldn’t even dim the glow.
