This color definitely looks like a pair of Hanes briefs I purchased in an assorted color pack of women’s underwear. LOL. At least in the bottle.
It’s a pretty pastel green. It took 3 coats to get this coverage. As big a fan as I am of OPI…. well, this one I would only recommend for Easter or something…maybe poolside. It looks great on my toenails. Perfect for summer sandals. It’s not a neon, but it does have it’s own allure, especially against my brown skin. It’s more vibrant than I could capture in the pictures. (Will have to try sunlight.)
I like the way it looks on my nails, but I’m sure this will be off my fingernails in WAY less time than those Cherries lacquer strips were. Because I have nail polish ADD.
By the way, those Sephora lacquer strips were NOT trying to come off. No chipping or peeling or ANYTHING. And I was working hard to get them to chip. Ultimately, I had to just get nail polish remover and remove them. So they are definitely long-lasting. They wore well.
OPI – “Gargantuan Green Grape”
very pretty! Good to know about those strips. some of those just do not hold up 😦
Maybe I’ve had more success because I put a topcoat on them too. I feel like they will still last longer when my nails aren’t at a length where I’m using the tips of my nails for everything too.
When they are just growing out, they chip easily no matter what I use… but now that they’ve grown out a little, manicures last longer without chipping.
What strips have you used?? I need to test out my theory with different strips!
I have used the Kiss ones and the Sally Hanson ones, I am actually going to a Demonstration tonight, a friend of mine’s sister is starting up being a Representative for Jamberry Nail Shields, so I will be doing a thing on those shortly too.
I didn’t like the Kiss nail stickers I tried, at least not the “wear” of them. They were cute and easy to apply (and remove)… but I didn’t like the feel of them.
I love the Sally Hansen ones!
I’ve never heard of Jamberry…I’ll have to look that up!! I’ll be on the lookout for your post!
me too, I liked the Sally Hanson ones very much, I did a little preview here a bout 2 weeks ago? you should check it out, its got a few of the example designs, I think I put how to apply them, and the website link. 😀 And of course again in next day or so I will do a full report and then again along the way , wear and tear.
can you give me a link for your Sally Hansen post?? I can’t find it 😦
O I didnt do one for Sally Hanson it was the Jamberry “preview” I am sorry if I mis-spoke. 😦 I never got to do a review on the Sally ones or Kiss ones it was before I started blogging. but the Jamberry preview was: http://maesbeauty.wordpress.com/2012/05/04/jamberry-nail-shields/
When I saw the title of your post, I hoped you had painted tighty whities on your nails. LOL! This is a pretty green. Very soft and light.
LMAO!!!!!! Oh that would have been classic!! i didn’t even think to do that. 🙂 See, you and that creativity!
I am in love with this color and it looks so nice on your nails!
