I knew it wouldn’t be long before I tried another turquoise this month. Color Club New Bohemian (Back to Boho, Fall 2011) is a turquoise green creme:
Picture taken in sunlight. This applied well, but the formula was a little cuticle-draggy. I needed three coats for even coverage. I thought this was similar to another polish I tried earlier this month, American Apparel The Valley, but, looking at these turquoise polishes side-by-side, New Bohemian is much greener, while The Valley is more of a robin’s egg blue. Wherever it lands between blue and green, any shade of turquoise is pretty to me! This one is light (turquoise is a light color anyway) but still colorful and bright. Looking at it makes me want to relax on the beach. I paired this with OPI Ate Berries in the Canaries on my toes.
For my St. Patrick’s Day green this year, I picked Color Club Artsy Crafty (Back to Boho, Fall 2011), a dusty hunter green creme:
Picture taken in sunlight. This applied well, but the formla was a tad cuticle-draggy, so I did two coats with necessary touchups in between. I have several dark hunter/forest greens (from what I gather, hunter green is more yellow-toned while forest green is more blue-toned), but this one sets itself apart by with its dusty, smoky quality. It’s just the right shade to be wearing today, perfectly dark but still obviously green. I paired this with Sephora by OPI Worth My Weight on my toes.
For my last dusty polish before I start wearing greens for the rest of the month, I chose Color Club Shabby Drab (Back to Boho, Fall 2011), a dusty periwinkle blue creme:
Picture taken in natural light. (It seems fitting that after days and days of sun, I’d end up wearing something called “Shabby Drab” just as the weather is turning worse.) This applied pretty well, but it has that type of streaky formula that can be prone to cuticle drag, so I used three coats. I think its name is really a misnomer, this color is neither shabby nor drab, it’s actually quite pretty! It is a dusty shade, but it’s more springlike (despite being in a fall collection) and soft than overly greyed. I like that even thought it’s a dusty shade, it still has a sort of pop of color, not exactly bright, and not super-pigmented, but definitely not pale. This shade of periwinkle makes me think of a cloudy sky. I paired this with Sephora by OPI Run With It! on my toes.
