Greens for March: Glitter Gradient

Essie Sew Psyched is a green, but layered it dons the neutral mantle. This is a great feature in a polish.

Here is Essie Sew Psyched with OPI Servin' Up Sparkle and Pure Ice Heart Breaker.

Three coats of Sew Psyched topped with Pure Ice Heartbreaker and a bit of OPI SUS as a tip gradient.

OPI Servin' Up Sparkle is from the epic OPI and Serena Williams collaboration. Frankly, one of my favorites. I could be bias, I'm a big fan of Serena, she rules. No, putting bias aside, that was packed with great duos.
It's holo glitter and it's not super unusual, but it does have a good density for coverage, one coat did enough so I didn't have to fiddle around with it.

I think Pure Ice Heartbreaker is just epic. It's a shifty little luminous green that pulls blue at certain angles. I rarely check out Pure Ice, my Walmartland is like it's run by the Soviet Empire: dingy lighting, no end caps with special collections, and a polish selection that looks like it was in a bread line for freaking days: spent, tried, burnt out, and just depressing. Come on Walmart, get your shinola together. It's not like you don't have the budget!

Here is Essie Sew Psyched alone. It is green, but softer, more gray. 

A soft lichen green, it has a silvery white shimmer that really makes it like a "frost creme", which is kind of crazy, but very cool.

I really love this kind of polish because it works as both a green and a neutral. Wow!

Thank you for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. I didn't realize there was shimmer in the Essie...but it is a natural for that Pure Ice topper. I also agree about the OPI duos for Serena Williams, I definitely got ahold of Servin' Up Sparkle and Grape Set Match...
