Usually, I'm not at all into pop music, but I love ABBA, I think I inherited that from my mum :-)
As base color I used Catrice Planet Tokyo (Neo Geisha Limited Edition), a bright, vibrant grass green. I would even call it frog green, it has exactly the same color as Kermit. I used two coats for this mani, but they were still a little translucent. If I wanted to wear Planet Tokyo alone, I would have added a third.
Then I added two coats of KBShimmer The Dancing Green. "The Dancing Green is a bright green polish with a blue undertone. This polish features fuchsia square glitters, chartreuse dots, sapphire hex glitters and fuchsia dots. A subtle micro shimmer completes this emerald colored polish."
Well, I don't completely agree with this official description. At first I even wanted to disagree with the blue undertone and call it warm, yellow. But then I realised even if I can't see any blue, the green leans cold, so I guess blue undertones it is. But I couldn't find any micro shimmer, the base is completely un-shimmery. But there is gold micro glitter, maybe that's what KBShimmer considers as shimmer.
Application of The Dancing Green was easy and I finished the mani with one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer. I admit, this really vibrant shade of green isn't the best color for my skin tone, but is there anyone who only wears perfect colors?
KBShimmer polishes are sold on their website (US only) and at Harlow & Co.
