The Lacquer Ring – Green

It’s TLR time again, Nicole’s up this month with her choice and she chose Green, very fitting for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day!

I intended this to be much different than it turned out.. it’s not terrible or a fail just not the look I was going for. :/  I did Cirque’s Erda and topped it with ILNP’s Flakies (whattttt? again!! i know) Supernova.

So Supernova has Blue, Green, and Purple flakies. On my swatch stick, yes I swatch each color.. It looked mostly green with a little bit of purple. So before I move on let me explain about my swatches because there seems to be some buzz in some of the groups I’m in on FB. Anyway… I have these swatch plates below, and every time I get a new color, before it goes away I paint it and put the name of the polish. All of my polishes are sorted by color, not by shade, lol just all greens together, etc. I also put how many coats it took to get that so that I know if it took 3 coats, it’s not a good stamping polish. Some people think this is a waste, some people think that you can just look at the bottle.. but Erda is a perfect example of why that doesn’t work… For me Erda looks much darker in the bottle. Now I know by looking at my swatches… Just sayin 😉 lol

Nail-polish-font-b-swatches-b-font-display-boards-chuck-nail-polish-color-card-display-panelAnyway back to the mani.. so on the swatch plate Supernova looked more green on it’s on, I guess paired with the green it took on the other colors, which is fine just not what I’d hoped for is all.

Either way I think it came out good, It’s just not as St. Patty’s Day as I wanted.

Here’s some more angles

IMG_7384See it’s a more even mixed of both the green and the purple on this one.

IMG_7383Same with this, more even mixture.

So what do you think, are you sick of me doing flakies yet? I just can’t help myself! AND she just came out with holo ones, I am trying very hard to not give in… lol

What’s your favorite green polish?

Here are the other girls green manis

  1. First off- if anyone is giving you crap about swatching your polishes I would absolutely bounce from that group or the admins should boot them (even better) because I mean seriously- when has better organization ever been a bad thing? Never. Ever. This is a fact.

    Secondly- these are cute w the flaky polish. This combo would be good for mardi gras sometime too- all purple an green. I’m just surprised there isn’t a damn flock of butterflies all over your hand. 😉

  2. LOL at Nicole’s butterfly comment!
    I could copy this since I’m a punk and a day late, lol. Interesting how the flakies take on the purple tones over the green.

  3. I think we all have our own ways of storing our polish so who cares what other non polish puny mortals think. 😛 I wouldn’t dream of storing my polish by color…it’s by brand and by collection. I know…I am a weirdo but that’s a good thing! Anyway, I am really like all these flakies!
