merry christmas eve, for the beauties who celebrate! my next tip is christmas-y but works for new year's eve and right through the rest of the winter season as well! if you're looking for another way to work the emerald trend, try emerald nails! rich green is a beautiful contrast to the white snow backdrop.
after trying different hues of green nails, sally hansen instra-dri fast dry nail color in jumpin jade is the winner. unlike the "jade" polishes of fall 2009, this is not a minty shade, but a true evergreen color -rich green with a hint of blue (not sure why they named the polish jade...). but no matter, everywhere i go people are complimenting my tips.
the formula is a bit thick - if i had planned better i would gone with one coat instead of two. $4.99 at your local drugstore.
