Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh, I am so happy I got this colour. I saw that nailpolishcanada.com was selling it and I scooped it up the minute I saw it. I don't really have any colour like this but I was really happy to find something. It's kinda ugly and it's kinda sexy. Pukey and fantastic all rolled up into a thick creme formula hahaha. Good news, it doesn't clash with my skin colour. Bad news, you gotta LOVE the colour to wear the colour.
But, I see potential for this colour being used in nail art. Mix it up with pink glitter or do a tape mani with a pink/copper colour, heck even gold. I really like that combo. If I ever get the breasticles to do nail art, I'll post up here. I really hate doing it because it usually sucks ass. Anyways, read on to get the scoop on this polish.
What I liked most about this polish:
I really liked the colour - but this is one of those colours you will either love or hate because man it's weird and funky and fresh. The overall effect is just BAM! Very interesting yellow-green… that's chartreuse right? I was also glad it was opaque because if it was sheer it might have made me look sick. I think having opacity makes a difference with colours like these. I prefer it as a creme as well so that was another bonus point.
Things you should know about it:
Maybe it was just my bottle, but it's very hard to apply and to get even. If you've got nail polish thinner I'd add a couple drops to fix it up. You definitely need to have precision plus patience for this nail polish. I used thicker coats because it's easier to paint on - only because I didn't have to double back and fix any mistakes.
What I didn't like about this polish:
The formula was very thick/streaky/draggy; this is definitely a polish that will benefit from some thinner. On the first coat it was streaky and when I when I doubled over a spot it would drag. On the second and third coats, it was the same problem but it self levelled a bit so the streak marks weren't as noticeable. Realistically, the lay person can't tell so if you're intrigued I'd get the colour because there's really not a lot of it around. Just know it's going to be thick and for you to have a light-hand.
Definitely. I mean, it looks like puke but it's such a cool colour I would totally rock it. I'd buy it again.
It was part of the Nicki Minaj Spring 2012 collection so it might be a little HTF but the Fiercely Fiona (also equally HTF) might serve as a double but that's all I know. Got mine for $8.95 CAD at nailpolishcanada.com
All pictures are with 3 coats of Did It On 'Em. I took these pictures outside in natural sunlight - I'll note where I didn't.
You can see the streaks here but it's still pretty good.
It's a nice yellow/green - kinda shrek with more yellow mixed in. There's a bit of drag on the ring finger.

Quintessential bottle shot
I don't know why this old camera changes my skin colour. Am I really that lobster-ish? I should peel the bottoms of these shouldn't I… I never really do.
What do you think of it? Is your bottle thick like mine?
peace n love
