L.A. Girl Chromium Green

The 8th post for The Challenge is metallic. I chose L.A. Girl's Chromium Green, from their Metal collection.

Chromium Green is an emerald foil, composed of green and silver particles. It leans a little blue, so it can look a little on the teal side. An emerald-teal hybrid of sorts. It's a very pretty color. These L.A. Girl Metal collection polishes seem to give off a glow. They're eye-catching no matter what lighting condition they're in. Last night, I had been lying in bed, reading for a bit. I got up and went into the bathroom, and turned on the light. When I looked down at my nails, it actually HURT my eyes to look at them! The glowyness was shocking after being in dim lighting.

This stuff applied flawlessly! It was so easy to work with. I used two coats with attentive application. If I hadn't been paying attention, I would have needed three, as it has a tendency to leave bald spots. It dries fast, and the silver and green pieces come together perfectly on the nail! I really love this polish, and regret not picking up the entire collection. I own a couple other colors I've yet to show.

How did you US kids enjoy your Labor Day (if you were lucky enough to not have work)? It was the first year I didn't have to work (good lord I hate retail), and I enjoyed it by doing no labor whatsoever! I sat around and read for a good while, watched some TV, dinked around on the internet. It was awesome! I finished reading Middlesex this morning, and if you haven't yet read it, I suggest getting your hands on a copy. It deserved all the hype and awards it got!

On Saturday, the family and I moved my sister into her dorm. It was pretty uneventful, but I did get this shot of a cool looking cloud on our drive up north.

And with that, I'm off to attempt being productive!
