Hello gentle readers.
Next up in my Colour Series is China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald. A rich, blackened emerald green shimmer; this polish is like wearing gemstones on your fingertips. This baby is gorgeous, my friends.
This swatch is three coats and top coat.
The formula on Emerald Fitzgerald is, in a word, difficult. This polish wants to be applied quickly and smoothly and it doesn't like to be overworked as it will drag if you try to go back over it after even a short time. I had the best luck with this by applying slightly thicker coats and working fast. The base of this polish is somewhat jelly in a weird way and I experienced some tip pull as it dried, I needed every one of those three coats to get this opaque, smooth and ready for it's closeup. In spite of it's snotty temperament, I like this polish.
Emerald Fitzgerald, should you choose to brave the bitchy for the beautiful is available online at Amazon and from various e-tailers. You should also be able to locate it on e-bay and at the odd beauty supply that carries older collections.
Thank you for coming by. Have a good Sunday and may your polish never bubble.
