I know this is a blog about franken-polish, but sometimes I find a commercial color that is so awesome, I have to post it on here. Unfortunately, this color is not widely available outside of Japan.
The brand is called TiNS by Estissimo, a Japanese brand. They have a lot of pastels and duochromes. Most of the colors are loaded with either large chunky glitter, micro-glitter or both. These are sparkle bombs in a jar!
It’s a sort of chamelon green with greenish yellow sparkle. The color is called “The Sleek Lounge.” It took only two thin coats to get bottle color. It dried a little rough but smoothed out with a coat of Seche.
I have a ring with the semi-precious stone peridot. It’s sort of a slightly dirty medium green, and this matches perfectly. I have a couple more TiNS to show you in the coming weeks and one more green one! They’re about $13 a bottle, which is not so bad, considering a bottle of OPI is $22 and a bottle of Color Club is $15. Everything in Japan is expensive- except for cigarettes, which cost about $3 a pack. I don’t smoke, but I think that cigarettes are one of the only things that are cheaper in Japan than in the US.
