NOTD: malibu green

as i mentioned in my last post, i wasnt feeling the peachy shade from american apparel. the color is beautiful but i am just not in the mood for peach. so i repainted my nails with another american apparel polish, malibu green.

i love this color. the application for this was much easier than the summer peach. my guess is because summer peach is such a light shade so it is prone to streaking. malibu green applied effortlessy. i could have got away with only one coat, but out of habit i did two.

these pictures are from a couple days after i first painted them. as you can see, they havent chipped yet. they arent as shiny any more though. you can tell by the photos that my topcoat seems a little dull (i used out the door topcoat)

i am definitely feeling this shade. it reminds me a bit of opi's jade is the new black, but brighter and with more blue tones to it. you can check out my NOTD with jade is the new black HERE.

what do you guys think of this shade? definitely not for the conservative work place!
