Green Foil...Am I Seeing Doubles?

I found this crazily named polish, "Hedy's Okē Dokē" in Right Aid. I love how the e's are marked so that you know that they are long instead of silent.

I grabbed a couple, what the heck, $1.99 and buy one, get one 50% off, why not?

Here is Camo Loco

Very reminiscent of Princessa's Martian Jade:

Not as light, not as lovely, but certainly not bad.  Camo Loco is more earthbound, more brushstrokey.

There is something about Martian Jade that enables angels to dance on pins, the heavens open up and beam gloriously down on me when I wear it.
OK, I'm nuts about it, and this may have been a gratuituous way to repost it...hehehe.

Back to Camo Loco....I love the name, and it was an easy to use polish: dried well, applied easily and wore well, too. It is a little thicker than Princessa, but it's not really a foil, it's more of a glassy particle kind of thing.

 Had I not found Princessa prior to this polish, I might be - might - gushing about Camo Loco. Right now Camo Loco is the guy who looks like Russell Crowe but acts like Carrot Top. You know, perfect until he moves, opens his mouth, or tries to order a drink.

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. The Camo Loco is pretty, but I think I like the martian jade better.

  2. I saw this at Rite Aid and didn't particularly like it. Although now seeing it on I kinda like it. Maybe I'll go back and pick it up.

  3. I agree, Martian Jade is on a whole other level.

    But...Camo Loco is pretty interesting!

  4. I'm sorry, I can't even appreciate the Camo Loco next to the stunner that is Martian Jade!

  5. Martian Jade is amaaazing. Where can I buy Princessa? I've never heard of this brand and google doesn't have a lot to say. Ross?

  6. My Ross rarely has any Princessa, but all is not lost! You can go to Richon.com and get their number and call them. It is a small office, but super friendly.
    They don't seem to have their polishes online, and their website is bad, but they were very nice.

  7. Thank you. I will definitely have to do that. All the different shade swatches I've seen - okay the three that I've seen - look amazing.

  8. I will do some more soon, give me a couple weeks.
