Shiny green

A little later than usual, so without further ado, this weeks color for “Lacke in Farbe … und Bunt!” by Lena and Cyw“mittelgrün” (middle green):

“Pearly Peacock” was part of the “Celebration” LE that KIKO came up with last summer. It is a gorgeous green shade with cold blue undertones and packed with shimmer. I think it qualifies as a satin polish, as it dries semi-matte and with a slightly rough surface.

It took three coats to get it opaque, and if you look as close as on the pictures, a fourth might be necessary. Drying time and application was – as always with KIKO polishes – perfect. Even clean-up went surprisingly well, which I didn’t expect from a polish with so many glittery bits. 🙂

As this polish has enough going on already, I only added an oval-shaped rhinestone at the back of the nail.

Base coat: p2 hands & nails calcium gel
Main color: KIKO Celebration 423 Pearly Peacock (three coats)
Rhinestones from claire’s
Top coat: Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat

  1. Hachja. Grün halt 😉 Trotzdem hübsch, vor allem, weil er nicht so gelblich, sondern eher bläulich unterlegt ist. So könnte ich mir Grün auch vorstellen 😀

  2. Wow, toller Lack – und ich finde ja nicht, dass man da sieht, dass da irgendwo noch eine Schicht mehr sein müsste 😉 Ein sehr, sehr cooler Lack – Grün rockt! 🙂
