Um wow. Sorry guys, I disappeared for a... a month? I've been good and not wearing chippy polish, but most of them were repeats and my camera died and had to get a new one and my lamp is still not working and I have to get a new one of those, too, and now I sound like I'm making excuses for myself. Blegh. I'm sorry.
Anyway, here's Zoya Irene, which I picked up during Zoya's Green Friday sale. I rather like Zoya. It works well with my base and top coats, and my body chemistry. They have lots of sales. They have a lot of colors. They also have Remove +, which is my HG remover.
I also really like this green, although I'd been skeptical when I first took a look at it. Most yellow colors wash me out and make me sallow, but I think Irene is kind of flattering. It's sort of a metallic, mossy green, and was done in two coats. It is the exact color I associate with the name Irene, which has this practical, down-to-earth feel for me.
Haha. :P Sorry guys, I just love this. I always want to wear this color with leather and heavy eyeliner, but I think I just wore skinny jeans and combat boots and called it a day. Sorry for the tipwear; Irene is somewhat brushstroky and I usually get rid of that problem by using a thick amount of polish and applying lightly. It works--but once you put quick-dry tc on it, it goes through massive shrinkage.
The base color for the ring finger is Nicole by OPI's Shimmy Shimmer, and I smattered Irene on top of it for that weird river-rock look.
I have more posts coming up, and I've been blog-tagged twice, so I hope to see you soon!
Oh, and quick question to any of my readers: I'm on no-buy, but do I NEED OPI Mad As A Hatter?
