♥ S.H - 'Green with Envy' & Maybelline - 'Natural Pink' funky french

Sally Hansen Green with Envy and Maybelline Natural Pink Funky French 
Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat

Dang! This green polish is something else, so I thought it would be neat to pair it an unbelievably bright pink. Isn't this the most garish pairing of polish colours ? Yet, I can't look away - I like it but dang, thats bright. I am not sure exactly what the rationale for naming this pink colour was. There is nothing natural about it - it is super duper bright, possibly leaning towards fluorescent, and is....is...... eye-catching.

I went with a funky french on this one..... like an actual "using the french tip guide in the proper way" instead of how I usually do it. The Maybelline polish 'Natural Pink' needed 3 coats, though. When I removed this funky mani  I wanted to see what 'Natural Pink' looked like on it's own, but just couldn't see myself wearing it for the day. It was really streaky and probably needs a good base coat to fix that.


Anyhoo- after my bright green frankens that I made with Claire's Yellow Brick Road, I had to run out and purchase this Sally Hansen polish 'Green with Envy' = WOW, just wow, this polish applied perfectly in two coats. This chartreuse creme colour is amazing. I just saw a comparison of Shreck Like colours this morning on Little Music Boxes which is worth checking out. This polish is $2.99 CAD. I can see this on my toes for most of the summer....

-Also; for the first time I actually spilled a bottle of polish - photos below.
I'm pretty sure it's because I kept making fun of the name of this maybelline polish 'Natural Pink'

!!!! look at how thick that is, Dang! I almost scrapped this mani. Normally I apply T.C. while the tip guides are still on.......(* trails off *....... )

I agree with you that is not a very natural pink, but it is a VERY funky french. :D
