Sally Hansen – Amber Ruby

Yuck. This is an ancient Nail Prisms polish. I never have been a fan of duochromes, and this one is kind of an ugly color besides. The effect is cool though, so it does deserve a bunch of pictures.

Cover Girl – Go Go Green

Posted by manicuremania on October 30, 2009

covg gogogreenGo Go Green is a Nailslicks polish that I got loooooong ago – look, there’s no writing left on the label! It has separated or something¬† though – it was very difficult to work with. Very verrrry thin. Odd – I can fix thickened old polishes, but what’s up with thinned ones? I’ve noticed the same thing with a couple of other Nailslicks I have, though. Three coats and I still never achieved anything near the opacity I wanted.

Two Chartreuses (Chartreusi?)

Posted by manicuremania on October 29, 2009

Here are two very similar polishes that my eye always passes over whenever I’m scanning my collection for a polish I feel like using, because – well, they’re kind of ugly. They’re just so bright and not really me. They’re both very old also – notice the slightly different bottle on the Pure Ice one!

Wild Thing is a yellowy chartreuse that took four streaky, draggy coats. Yuck.
