Green is Calming


Hello, everyone! First up I have my NOTD from the weekend, Sephora by OPI Read My Palm + Chanel Illusion D'Or on top. It was rainy all weekend so I didn't get a chance to snap good pics. I also did this mani after drinking several glasses of wine, so I'm pleased with my drunken-mani abilities. :P

This is 2 coats of Read My Palm (should have done 3) and 1 coat of the Chanel.




Next up is my franken - I don't have a name for it yet! This is 3 coats. I needed a long-lasting color to get through this week (final paper writing) and I read that blue and green are calming colors, so I went with a teal glitter (glitters tend to last longer on me than other finishes). The recipe is 1/2 Dorothy Who?, 1/4 Emerald Sparkle, 1/4 clear.

Hope it'll last!

Any suggestions for a name? What kinds of colors do you wear when you want it to last as long as possible?

Thanks for reading!

They look great, especially the franken! It kind of looks like outer-space, Galaxy maybe? It also kind of reminds me of Oz... Emerald City?

I ordered Illusion d'or and planned to try it over my fav green. You just proved that it works pretty well. Franken is beautiful!

I agree with Lauren it reminded me of the Emerald City as well, but I was thinking of the name 0Z!! The Wizard of OZ!!
