Sally Hansen, Green with Envy

















Oh man. It's been a while, hasn't it? :) Sorry about that; I actually lived without internet for about half a week before I left for my parents' home, whereupon I spent most of it doing things away from the computer. This is the first time I've had time for myself, and I've never been so grateful for all of the pictures I've been keeping in the vault for such an occasion.  Sorry, everybody.  I'll try to let you all know if something like this will ever happen again.

Anyway, on to what you're here for! This is Sally Hansen's Green with Envy, a squishy green creme with jelly-like consistency.  Nothing to complain about here--this lovely applied perfectly in two coats and I performed little to no cleanup for it.  The brush was a liiittle bit stiff, like most of the Xtreme Wear line, and you had to apply lightly for the sake of perfect application. It may streak, depending on the wearer.

 Awesome.  Green with Envy is perfect for summer.

Oh, before I forget! I also wanted to thank you all for the suggestions and comments. I haven't ordered anything yet--further research seems to ask me to buy my first Lippmann polishes, as well! (Aaaaaaaah!) It's that limited edition All That Jazz set.  Looks awesome. So does Across the Universe.  What do you all think?

  5. Oyku: haha, this one isn't even mine. :) I should have given credit to all the ones I've swatched, but a good friend of mine/semi np collector (OWN UP, I KNOW YOU READ THIS) let me borrow them. :) I'm grateful.

  7. Jackie S.: gaaaaah, I know, I know! I'm just afraid of spending that much money when I'm supposed to be _getting rid_ of polish before I move... possibly out of the country. And thanks for the compliment. You're the sweetest. :)

  10. Great green! I'm not sure why I don't have this one--I seem to have two other polishes with the same name but they're nothing like this.

    I ordered both AtU and the All that Jazz set, so I'm no help.

  11. KarenD: ...hahahaha, me too. <<. I guess that's my graduation present! Congrats, me.

    And yes, this is one of those greens unimaginatively named Envy, but it is truly glorious as a color. Get it. I love it. :)

  14. jornaldalulu: Thanks so much!

    Nails 4 Stars: aww, thanks. :) I've been really into the light green thing lately!

    Ali's Nail News: please pull it out! Extreme Wear doesn't get as much love as it deserves, I think--great brush, great price, great color line, great quality. I really like this one. :)
