Is it Friday? Really? Where did this past week go?
I know this is a Christmas color – the name gives it away, but it doubles pretty darn good as a Valentine’s Day red, too.
I thought it was very pretty, despite the fact it is a glitter. I hated the removal. It took me a while…for some reason, this formula and the glitter were particularly stubborn. It took a while to dry in between coats – about 15 minutes. I did two coats because I was feeling particularly impatient. I even did two coats of a high gloss topcoat (Posche). The glitter beneath was still grainy and came through.
It’s a gorgeous red glitter.
Every time I see this polish’s name, the lyrics for Madonna’s Cherish comes flying through my head along with the images of the video. Maybe it’s me. Maybe not. Then it inevitably flies out of my mouth…the sound an offensive emittance that in no way remotely resembles Madonna’s song at all. At. All. Consider yourself lucky I haven’t included an audio clip for with this post. Sadly, Mr Carinae isn’t as lucky as you. In closed capacity of our car, he has suffered my offkey singing…and I think he is now officially hearing impaired. Ooops. I thought I had the corner on that market.
Anyway, here is this frosty, shimmery minty green from China Glaze. I’m going to have to compare it to Leaf Him At The Altar because that’s what it reminded me of. I’ll make sure to include them at the bottom of the post.
For now, here is the Cherish-ed prettiness.
Ok, I was wrong about them being similar…my bad!
Lately I’ve been into green nail polish. It all started with Nubar’s Going Green Collection and I don’t see any signs of my current green fixation stopping any time soon. When shades of green like Leaf Him At The Altar keep coming out, how can I say no?
This is such a strong match for MAC’s Beyond Jealous, but I’ll have to do a side by side comparison…However, you’ll have to settle for the post that shows the picture. I actually prefer the formula in $OPI because it wasn’t difficult to work with.
Ahh…this color came out the same time as $OPI’s Metro Chic. So I’d say about Fall 2008. I didn’t purchase this until recently. I did, however, purchase Metro Chic the moment it came out because I love that whole mushroom-y, taupe-y color. This is the lighter, more spring version. Think youthful sister, if you will. While I prefer the edgier and darker Metro Chic, I won’t complain if this finds its way on to my fingertips.
