I recently won a green-themed giveaway and since I had some crazy nail drama today (see below post) I decided to forego the aforementioned promise of nail art to show you one of the “gems” that I won, Brucci’s Black Emerald. Black Emerald is a black jelly based green glass flecked duochrome (green and burgundy but all of the pictures of the burgundy look black- you’d have to see it in person) and I adore it. This polish went on in two coats and satisfied my less than peachy nail mood….
I was lucky enough to recently win not one, but two!! giveaways and so I just wanted to do a dedicated post to those ladies out there that hooked me up with some seriously loved goodies and to send a BIG thank you along to the kind ladies who gave away such great gifts. PS, don’t mess- I know I used a roll of paper towels in the background- I figured you’d rather see them than Rafik’s feet :-)
This giveaway included some really hard to find green polishes. Included in the giveaway were Essie’s Mint Chintz, Misa’s Embroidered Emerald, Milani Hi- Tech, Orly’s Opal Hope, Brucci’s Black Emerald, Orly’s Walk Down The Aisle, Sally Hansen’s Spring Green, and Wet ‘N’ Wild Fusion. I spent the afternoon playing this a lot of these (hence no nail design or swatches, I was playing- not doing serious business!)
