The only, and I mean ONLY good thing (ok, aside from the money saving thing) about slowing down on polish buying is the fact that I can begin to make a dent in my untrieds. That’s pretty much what I’ve been doing the past few months. I still buy here and there, but only when a new collection comes out that I really like and of course I sneak in a few indies on occasion. I’ve slowed down so much I haven’t been able to qualify for my monthly 15% off coupon at Sallys! That means I’m spending less than $25 a month there, and really the money spent is usually on base and top coats and nail wheels. Yay me
From my untrieds today I have Sinful Colors Green Ocean. Its a fairly HTF Sinful Colors that surfaced during St Patty’s Day. I’m not sure if they come out with it every St Patty’s day or not. I found my bottle this summer randomly at Walgreens, I guess there was one straggler that slipped through the cracks….and now it’s MINE
Green Ocean is a clear base with blue/green flakies in the normal kind of shard shapes as well as squares and hexagons. The formula is a little thick, but it’s nothing this seasoned polisher couldn’t handle. Despite the formula, it has easily become my favorite flakie polish. Most of the time I think flakies look best over black or nearly black polishes because that’s when they show their best colors. So naturally I used my favorite black cream as a base, Finger Paints Black Expressionism. Once Green Ocean coats the black base it totally comes alive in an awesome blue and green glow.
So what do you think about Green Ocean? Do you have it? If so, what colors have you layered it over? I thought the outcome would be a decent Halloween mani as well since it’s dark, but glowy. Thats just me though, right now anything black relates to Halloween for me.
