I’m warning you, ladies. That KOH Experience Shop is a dangerous place to venture into. It’s funny that I should call it nail polish heaven because, in reality, it’s just a place filled with devilish temptations. You’d have to have a lot of will power to walk away from that place empty-handed. Or you could just leave your wallet at home. Or not go there at all!
So green that it’s almost offensive? Okay, here’re some pastel colours to soothe your eyes for a change:
These are the six new Spring colours that KOH will release next month. As is the trend with every brand, they’re all light, sweet pastels. I didn’t try these on my nails though – I was too distracted by the Wall of Joyful Colours.
Right, let’s continue the green assault.
Now, I know green doesn’t often come out tops as people’s favourite nail polish colour. It’s not quite my favourite colour either. I tried Jewel on one nail some time back, and I wasn’t too excited. I gave it a second look this time around and well, it wasn’t too bad. It’s bright and fresh.....and loud. Jewel is glossy and has very fine specks of shimmer, which are noticeable in the bottle. On the nails, they are drowned out by all that green, unfortunately, and only conspicuous in certain lighting or at certain angles. The nails here are with two coats, except for the nail with stamping, which was with just one coat. I encountered no application problems with this formula.
Not wanting to create too much of a riot on my nails but still eager to do some stamping (haven’t done any of this for a couple of weeks now), I decided to stamp on just the ring finger. A lovely fellow blogger, Beauty Vibes, had suggested that I try using the Catrice 60 Seconds Nail Couture nail polish for stamping and so I did! Thank you! The nail art here was done with Catrice Black Beauty and, of course, my one and only Essence Nail Art Stampy Set: 01 Be Creative (boy, I’m really procrastinating with KONAD, aren’t I?).
You might have noticed that KOH has started issuing cases with a different look: bright colours with a ribbon on the flap. I chose a green case to go with Jewel. So cheesy, I know!
Love it or hate it, I’m sure your views on green nail polish would be polarised!
