NOTD: OPI Jade Is The New Black

6:44 AM

Almost a year ago from when the OPI Hongkong Collection was launched, I decided to paint my nails with one of the pretty colors in the collection. You've probably seen it everywhere already except on my nails. You know me, I almost always resort to any shades of red. Just to make sure I am using up all my nail colors before they dry up on me, here's a pretty green one.

OPI Jade Is The New Black looks more like a faded green than a fresh one so it's easy on the eyes and it's quite soothing so to speak. I think it's my favorite among all the colors in this collection. It's a subdued green and kinda looks dusty at first glance (until the creaminess swallows you).

A darker shade of green than Chanel Jade, this creamy green is a must try. I applied it on  my toes too...

I only had to apply two coats because the consistency was very thick and as usual the bottle comes with the much raved about OPI brush. Two coats and you get an opaque finish. This time however I did not use Seche Vite to top it off because my two bottles have gone sticky already. I need to get a few bottles more. Good thing this little green blob in a bottle dries fast. Perfect!

It looks pretty with the flash on. This looks more like how it looks for real.
