Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Coarse

Eyes: Green

Pros:
- Cheap, cheap, cheap! I got this for around $2, even with tax, and you get a respectable amount of product for your money.
- The wear time is decent. With a topcoat, I got four or five days before I started to see any peeling or chipping, and it comes off nice and easy with nail polish remover.

Cons:
- Requires at least three coats to build up decent opacity - it's not much more than a sheer sort of veil on the first few.
- The color isn't at all my cup of tea. It looks like emerald green in the bottle, but it's actually a bright green with lots of gold shimmer that somehow reminds me of asparagus. If that's your thing, more power too you, but this is waaaay too bright and garish-looking for me.

Takeaway:
Even though the price is to die for, I definitely won't be repurchasing this. The color isn't at all what I was looking for, and the sheerness makes it a pain to apply. But if you're looking for something really eye-catching, maybe for a costume or something, this might be worth trying out.

I love green, and I'm naturally attracted to all shades of green polish. For some reason, this shade screams "frog" to me---but I mean that in a good way, LOL!

It's an interesting green that brings nature to mind, with shimmery gold microglitter. But it is very sheer. I'm in the process of applying it right now, and to get the look that's in the bottle, I can tell I'm going to need a fourth coat.

I am loving these little gems--Confetti nail polish. I discovered them at my local CVS but I've read they might not be around much longer due to a law dispute. However, I've bought up many of their beautiful colors, even a backup of one that I love. I had to have this green as it is a perfect color for a Green Bay Packer mani. I used this last night for the first time as they are playing their first game of the '11 season tonight against the Saints. I found two coats to cover sufficiently, although I am pretty generous with application. Also, I used Orly Bonder base coat and it does a good job of "grabbing" the color and making it adhere to the nail surfuce. Followed up with a coat of Poshe--beautiful. I'll probably add some yellow tips before game time tonight to complete the "green and gold" look. Overall, the quality of this polish for the price is unbeatable. I've tried several colors and none have let me down. Get them while you can!

I love this color and I'd love to give this a higher rating but the formula is a letdown.

The good: This is very unique, a green jelly base with fine glass flecks. Unlike a lot of greens it isn't too yellow toned, or have that "swampy" look to it. It's vivid without being bright. It reminds me of leaves. So pretty!

The bad: The formula is very sheer and goes on really streaky. At 3 very generous coats I can still see my nail underneath. It's thin but kind of goopy at the same time. I'm tempted to add thinner to it but I'm afraid then I'd need at least 5 coats to make it opaque. Because it's hard to apply and requires 4 or more coats I would not buy this again.

I searched far and wide to find this shimmery forest green. The polish is very thin, but looks great when you apply 3 coats. This shade was fairly ubiquitous in the mid-1990s; I had nearly this exact shade in Cutex in middle school. I recently saw several models wearing this color polish in Glamour en Espanol, which started my search! Overall, a great deep green with yellowish gold, rather than blue/teal, undertones.

Beautiful color!
It was only 1.99 at CVS and it looks as great as my OPI 'Pearl of Wisdom' polish.

I applied 3-5 coats over my acrylic nails (white permanent tip) and it covered great.

I would buy this again and may go back and buy other pretty colors

This is a gorgeous forest green shimmer I found at CVS. Average wear (3 days without chipping), and it was only $1.99 at CVS.
