According to Pantone, the 2013 color of the year is the lively, radiant, and lush "Emerald Green". It is said to be "a color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony".
After knowing this, I remember I have an emerald green in my stash. The Revlon Matte Suede Emerald City nail polish that I have purchased last year at 25% off at Robinsons.
Basically as the name implies the polish if of matte finish, though it's not that very matte compared to the matte top coat the I had but still it has the spirit of matteness in it because it's not that shiny compared to other nail polishes.
This lush green polish is full of tiny shiny specks of green that shimmer evidently during application (while wet) and somewhat losses its sparkle when dry.
I have no problem with the application, the formula is great with just two coats you'll achieve full opacity just like what you see on my nails.
Overall, I find this polish to my taste especially when applied with top coat for more shine and vibrancy. In fact I already used this as based color for my Christmas Tree nail art.
Wait for my next post and you'll appreciate the color more, after I painted a simple design and covered it with top coat.
