Jordana ~ Green Glitz


Jordana ~ Green Glitz
Fresh green base with holographic glitters and bars


To describe this colour green seems almost impossible to me. It’s not grass green, it’s lighter than that, but it would be wrong to call it pale green, because it’s nothing like that either. So I guess you’ll have to just look at the pics to see what kind of green I’m talking about.

The formula is quite good, the polish glided on pretty easily, but it had the tendency to pull the glitters down over the nail, letting them all sit at the tip of the nails. A little pushing around solves that little problem though. Drying time is a bit on the boringly slow side, although it’s not the worst polish I’ve got in that respect.

It was opaque after two coats, but the colour did not at all suit my skin tone, so I added a third coat. That actually helped. It made the green a bit darker and deeper, and became acceptable. :)

Here is a pic of it in the sunlight:


And here’s one in my lightbox:


I don’t wear any top coat on either of the two pics.

It looks like two different kinds of green, doesn’t it?

I actually had dotting in mind with this mani, but I couldn’t find my dotting tool, and while looking for it I dented three of the nails pretty badly. Argh!! So I soon gave up trying to make that look any better, and I didn’t want to waste any more of my time with dots.

    1. You definitely should buy the purple one. It's the prettiest one of the bunch, in my opinion! :)

  2. It's a great green. I don't know what it looked like before the third coat but with it, I really like it! =)

    1. Next time I hope to wear it for so long that it actually grows on me :) But it's typical me to dent it before it's dry. *rolls eyes @ self* :D
