ABC Challenge: L is for Lime Green!

1:34:00 PM

Hi, gals and guys!

At first, I was at a loss when coming up with an idea for this week. But then, I was looking through my press samples that I have to swatch, and landed on the most gorgeous lime green crème. Inspired by Barielle Green Apple, I wanted to continue the theme. Over two coats of Green Apple, I added one coat of Sinful Colors Call Me Later for a nice sprinkling of green and gold glitters.

I want to take a moment to talk about the formula of Barielle Green Apple. Every single lime green polish I have tried has stained my nails and cuticles horribly, so I was nervous to try out this Barielle. Green Apple was recently released in their spring offering, Sweet Treats, and I couldn't find any info on whether or not this polish stains. I want to put it out there that it DID NOT stain my nails at all! Color me impressed!

I am obsessed with this color! I was on the fence at first, undecided if lime green was really my style. After wearing Barielle Green Apple for a full day, though, I am in love with this shade. The formula was great and didn't stain my nails, and the color is truly eye-catching. 

What's your favorite "unconventional" polish?

  1. Wow....look all thirty shades of Illamasqua "speckled", at a fraction of the price. Great job.

    Unconventional? Can't begin to imagine. I love it all! :)

  2. Isn't it great when you try a color you're not sure about and you love it? This is such a great color and I love the combo with the glitter on top. Like Lisa said, it reminds me of the Illamasqua line. I don't own many Barielles, but this one may just have to be mine!

  3. That is a super pretty combo. Love how they both look!

  4. I love love love this color and with the bling it reminds me of pear jelly bellies, dontcha think? Mmmm jelly bellies!!

  5. What an awesomely loud color! I love it!

  6. Really love it, it screams summer to me. I really want that glitter. Very cool :D

  7. Green is my fav color for nail polish and, of course, I also love lime greens! They are so bright and joyful! I think I have a couple of them by Essence... I have to wear them again soon!
