St. Patrick's Day Part 2: Neon Green!

I have so many green nail polish to choose from, so I changed it up again! (Zoya- Rina still got 2 days of wear though!). This is a unique polish in my collection. It is from Fashion Bug and it is named "Green". "Green" is too generic of a name for this gem. Before seeing nail polish being sold at Fashion Bug, I didn't even know they had their own brand. I purchased this a long time ago and I can't recall the cost, but I believe it was $4 or less. Green is a true neon with a slight shimmery blue flash and some tiny pieces of multicolored glitter. It's the same kind of glitter in China Glaze's- Snowglobe, but I can't think of the term to describe that type of pastel-colored glitter. The formula was on the sheer side, so this needed three coats.
Here it is with the flash. See what I mean about this being a neon!? It's so vibrant outside in the sun and with the flash, but indoors it's more subdued. The glitter is difficult to see in this picture. I definitely enjoyed this shade!
This was taken before I added a topcoat of Seche Vite. You can see how it dries to a matte/satin finish because it is a neon. Unfortunately this chipped just hours after I applied it. Usually matte polishes don't last very long. It was pretty while it lasted though.

    1. You're welcome! I actually tried to google it, and was unable to find any other swatches. I plan to share some more unique ones in the future. I revived some polishes that I've had since I was younger with thinner :)
