OPI Jasper Jade! A long a-wanted HTF :D

Before I forget: thank you everybody for your kind words about my family. I really appreciate them.

And now, my NOTD:

OPI Jasper Jade
When I joined NB in early 2007, this was the HTF that everyone was raving about. Not quite on par with the sort of raving that goes on with Clarins 230... but it was up there. (To this day, it's still expensive on eBay.) I've been dusty-hunting since the end of 2007 and have never been able to locate it. So when a lovely NBer said she found a stash and could get me a couple of things... OMG, so excited! (And so grateful!) And so she sent it. And I gotta say: I like it, it's not bad at all, but compared to what we get these days, the major thing that it has going for it is its rarity. Three coats, a little brushstrokey, normal dry time. It is a rather pretty blackened forest green shimmer. :)

lol, with this and Rainforest, I just do not get the hype. It's a very pretty green to be sure, but I don't think I would hunt for it.
It's awesome that you were able to get your hands on it though!

I do really like this color, but also part of it is the HTF status that comes with it. I'll probably never own it since we don't have dusty shops here, and eBay prices are ridiculous. Curious to see this with something like White Cap on top!

just a quick question .. what does "disty-hunting" mean .. i`ve seen the termed used before! thanks!

Awesome find! I think colors like this are easier to find them they were back in the day. But it is like acquiring a little piece of history... very cool!

It's a beauty! I actually have one that looks like this, a lot I believe... from MNY. I'll show it on my blog soon.

I've been a bit awol so I missed tons of stuff but I do hope both you and your family are well or will be.

Pretty shade on you. I've missed tons of good polish. For years I was just buffing my nails to make them shiny as glass. I would polish them once in awhile. I'd love to know what is on the list of HTF for everyone. I only know about the Clairns. Zulu was finally released again so that was lucky for me.

For anyone lemming, Wet n' Wild Craze 'Morbid' is quite close to this.
