My poor nails in Cedar green

Another too dark green nail polish! I need to lighten this, Mavala's nail polishes are cheap enough (edit: not that expensive in here, this was 4.35€, and widely available ;) so I can try it :D I've soaked my nails in Solar Oil all day... My poor nails are in terrible condition after Christmas.

I used 2 coats of Orly Nail Armor+3 coats of Mavala Cedar Green (251). Needs 3 coats to be opaque.

Pah, taas yksi liian tumma vihreä lakka! Täytyy varmaan vaalentaa tätä hiukan, Mavalan lakoilla sen raaskin ehkä tehdäkin ;) Olen suorastaan uittanut kynsiäni Solar Oilissa koko päivän... Kynsiraasut ovat ihan mennyttä näin joulun jälkeen. Käytin 2 kerrosta Orlyn nail Armoria ja päälle 3 kerrosta Mavalan Cedar Greeniä (no 251).



Indoors, with flash. It's greener in sunlight but no sun here, so doesn't help me much ;)

  1. I can't see any evidence of poor nail condition there. Your nails look fine here! I like this dark broody green! :)

  2. Did I hear this right? Mavala nail polishes are cheap?! Why do I have the idea they are 7€ for 5mL? *scratches head*

  5. Wow, Solar Oil näköjään toimii loistavasti - sun kynnet ja kynsinauhat näyttää olevan tip-top kunnossa :D Ja lakkakin näyttää hyvältä!

  6. Ai se onkin noin tumma, pullossa ei näyttänyt noin mustalta. Jääpipä sitten ostamati.

  7. Maittis: Solar oil rules :D

    milipili: Niin-pä. En tässä valaistuksessa mustasta erota. Auringossa varmaan näkyisi sävykin mutta eipä oikein näillä säillä lohduta :D

  8. Ugh, it is so hard to find a dark green creme polish that isn't too dark. I have an Opi dark green, Aragon Tomorrow, but it almost looks black. I think the green one from the Orly, Enchanted Forest, might be a tad lighter. It is a fine line though b.w. dark green and army green (I detest army green).

    So true :/ This is in fact very pretty color in better light... It's just not the sunniest time of year here now. LOL
