Days four and five: A dirty green and my favourite green ever

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Saturday! I feel all mixed up, that whole "blogger being down" thing really threw me for a loop. Thank god I worked all day both days or I might have had serious withdrawal symptoms! I missed writing to you guys, it's crazy, I never realized what a huge part of my day blogging actually is. My post from Thursday is still missing as I write this but blogger says that the problem will be sorted out soon... fingers crossed!

So, since my regular posting schedule got interrupted, I have a two-for-one kind of post today. I wanted to post an "ugly" green on Friday but obviously that wasn't possible, so I'm posting it today. And I wanted to wrap up green week with my favourite green ever... ah well, such is life! I'm just glad I can actually write this post lol!

You guys know how much I love "ugly" polish colours. Seriously. NPW for me. So when I saw the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean promo pictures, I knew Stranger Tides had to be mine.

Stranger Tides is a murky grey-sage green. It's so... dirty looking. I love it. I love colours like this. I got a lot of weird comments about this when I wore it but oh well, I love it! And bonusssssss - that's how shiny it is without topcoat. This was three coats. It would've been good in two, but we've discussed my spastic hands, so I needed three to level it out. I love this colour so hard. Also, observe the only moment of sunlight from the last week and a half. *Sigh* Spring fail.

I wish I could've done this next polish justice. I always take a million pictures of it but just... you need it. Trust me. You need it. This is the most beautiful green I own. It is my favourite ever. I need 210103410 back up bottles of it. I need a Helmer just for back up bottles of it.

China Glaze Emerald Sparkle. So so gorgeous.

Just to show the glitter


Yeah. My favourite green ever. And don't let the terrible lighting (I am so sorry) of my pictures fool you. This baby always looks green. And always looks gorgeous.

You need it. Trust me. You do.

That concludes my green week! I hope you've enjoyed it :) Green is one of my favourite nail polish colours and I have not been giving it enough love lately. I wanted to show a variety of greens but there were so many others I could have shown - Nubar Reclaim, China Glaze L8R G8R, China Glaze Jolly Holly, OPI Don't Mess with OPI... I think China Glaze makes the best greens. Even though my biggest green lemmings are OPI (*sigh*), China Glaze consistently comes out with beautiful greens and isn't afraid to go a more unique route (ie Zombie Zest - although that was from the year of the dupes so there were many, I thought it was pretty unique when it first came out!). Most of my greens are China Glaze and I love that ChG is one brand that usually includes a green in each collection!

That's it from me today! By the time this gets posted I'll be at work, boo! Hopefully my post from Thursday shows up soon haha. Still no go as of 12:30 AM here! 

What do you lovelies think? Do you have either of these polishes? Would you like to own either one of them? What polish colour do you wear most? What's your favourite? Do you think one brand does a certain colour better than another (like Essie and pinks?) China Glaze is my number one for greens, though I tried to show a variety this week! Would you like to see another colour theme week? If so, what colour? ELIZABETH DON'T SAY PINK. <3333

 Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!


  1. HAHAHA. You know I would say pink. BUT I say purple. Since upon counting/re-organizing my stash the other day I learned I had more purple than all other colours...then pink..then green (crazy right?)

    Anyways, stranger tides is growing on me, as are a few of the other colours in the collection. And you know how I feel about Emerald Sparkle..and how I need to get my hands on it.


  2. I thought I didn't need Emerald Sparkle for the longest time, but then I bought it and it turned out that I totally do need it. Looks great on you!

  3. Thanks do much for doing green week, I've enjoyed it a lot. Green polish is definitely my favorite, although I like a more lime/pea soup/pukey green lol. But I loooove Stranger Tides.

  4. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE STRANGER TIDES!!! *_* omg! it's so freaking gorgeous! Sadly I have a feeling that it's gonna emphasize my green veins >_<" My hands (and skin on my arms in general) look very yellow, so when I wear green.. it just looks weird.

  5. my fav green is emerald sparkle! so shinny and eye catching..

  6. Love Emerald Sparkle. It's one of my favorite greens!

  7. looooooove green. also, yes. Stephen started a blog after the 11th and the entire thing is missing now so he can't even post to it. How lame it that? Hopefully your post shall return soooooon!

  8. It was a surprise to me but 'Stranger Tides' was a winner. I think it's because I don't have a thing like it.

    Sparkly greens are always a WIN.

    I've enjoyed your theme week. Are you saying you are going to do another one too? Neat!!!!!

  9. Yes, please! What about yellow?
    Love the OPI green one, that's my type of shade too!

  10. I have loved green week! And I don't have anything like Stranger Tides in my collecting, so I think I'll have to rectify that! When I come off my no-buy of course....

  11. I've loved the green week. I think the only color I have more polishes in is Blue.... so would love to see a blue week if you were to do another color themed week. Thanks for Green Week :)

  12. Stranger Tides looks awesome! And obiously you aren't a true lacquerhead when Emerald Sparkle isn't present in your stash ;).

    An orange week would be fun :D!

  13. I loved all these gorgeous greens. <3 If you did another theme week I'd love to see some blues.

    Stranger Tides is so awesome. It keeps reminding me that I still need to get Fiercely Fiona. "ugly" colours = <3 And Emerald Sparkle is also one of those polishes I crave, but never buy out of fear I'll get the "bad version". (Also, can I just say that your nails look SO gorgeous. Serious nail envy over here.)

  14. Ohh man! I just bought Stranger Tides the other day.. Right after I saw my mom and showed her and she said "Ew! Why would you want to wear that?"

    She just doesn't understand.. Haha!
