I'm Swatchin' You - CQ Golden Green

Folks, I have a doozy for you today!  This color is un-freakin'-believable.  This is a polish I got in a swap.  It's from CQ and it's called Golden Green.  I love this color like whoa right now!  It's a very retro 70's olive green with gold shimmer.  It totally reminds me of a green shag carpet I had in my room as a child.  It's amazing how you think something is so hideous when you have it.  Then, 20 or 30 years later, it's retro chic and you wish you still had it!

The formula was great and very forgiving, so go ahead and take your time with application.  Just be careful of balding on the first coat if you use too many brush strokes.  It was almost opaque in one coat.  You are looking at two coats here.  The brush was perfect.  The finish on this is almost a frost.  If you look closely, you can see some brush strokes, but it's not very noticeable IRL.

I am seriously in love!  Oh, and don't look too closely at that nubbinized middle finger.  I'd like to say I broke that one whilst aggressively flipping someone off.  The sad truth is that it broke while cleaning the kitchen.  So ho-hum.  :o)

Sunlight - blurred for bling

  1. Look at that crazy situation on your nails!!!! I love it! I can't stop looking at it! I bet you can't either! :D
    Well I certainly hope you flipped your kitchen off for breaking your nail.
