Day 4 - Green

Another day has gone by and we're already on day 4 of the 30 Days Untried Challenge, the green.
If you are following me for a little while you know I am no fan of greens. I only buy very specific shades of green so it is quite hard to find a green untried polish in my Helmer. But I almost forgot about one that I got a while ago. This is a polish that I got not for it's color, but for it's bottle. So today is just the perfect opportunity to actually try it on. Please welcome to this stage: Peripera - Satin Green (P045).

Peripera is a Korean brand and the easiest way to get it is trough eBay for around $8.5 a bottle.
And when I stopped staring at this gorgeous bottle and actually looked at this polish, I really liked it! It's a metallic/chrome olive-green. I think it suits my skin tones nicely, wouldn't you agree?
It is really hard to stop staring at that cool kitty. LOL but I guess you do want some important details. So here goes: What you see here are two coats. But the truth is - this is a classy one coater! It is very well pigmented and has a great formula. Like most metallics/chromes you do see the brush strokes but very subtly. This is just the texture of this polish. As for application - it levels itself perfectly and the second coat is just for us freaks who "gotta do two"! There is no top coat in these pics.
Drying time was also surprisingly fast. I have several chromes and while they do dry quickly, none of them dries AS quickly as this one!

I thought about stamping on this polish with gold. I don't know, it felt the most appropriate. But after using my Kleancolor Metallic Yellow yesterday, I don't have any untried gold so I went with a darker olive-green and used Life - a local brand polish, number 286. I kind of like the results although it's not exactly the way I wanted it to look.

That bottle is super cute ^^ I would purchase one of Peripera's polishes just for the same exact reason you did! If the polish is slightly nice: it must be mine :p

You made a great choice, that color is classy! And yes, it suits you!
