Today’s color is celery green. It was a little streaky for some reason, but I liked the color. It was really simple- 2/3 OPI Lemonade Stand By Your Man, a shimmery medium yellow, and 1/3 China Glaze Blue Island Ice Tea. I added a couple drops of white to it to lighten it at the end, since I wanted a sort of celery green, but I think that’s what caused the streakiness. Usually my different brands play well together, but I get some uneven application here. I still like the color, but I think I’d skip the creme white at the end next time, or add a silver to lighten things up rather than the white.
In the back of my mind was China Glaze Moonpool. I never did get it, and I wanted it after I saw some swatches online. I think I was subconciously trying to recreate it here! I hardly ever lighten polishes by adding creme white at the end because it often turns a color bad, but I guess I was determined to make Moonpool. I may just get it over with and do an actual Moonpool franken, just to get it out of the way!
Also coming up: some green on green Konad, a few juicy dark shades, and something intriguing- inspired by Ny-Quil. Stay tuned!
