♥ Ardene AppleTini ♥



Ardene Appleitini - 3 coats with 1 coat of T.C.

 Here is the second Ardene Polish, Appletini, I have a hard time with polish application when the brush handle is like this. BUT - I will not complain today! This is 3 coats, with a coat of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat. As you an see there is a lot of dents flaws in this polish; I applied it way too thickly. I find that I lay the polish on way too thick with these types of brush handles, and I also have some bare spots as well.

I generally do not buy these types of colors often, even though they are bright and peppy, something else usually catches my eye. But This was on sale so I had to buy it.


I really like this colour, it does not have any dusty yellow-ish-ness to it, like Sally Hansen Green with Envy, it's just a peppy bright lite green. I do not have a polish similar to this, the closest thing I have is OPI Gargantuan Green Grape. And thats not really close at all.

Indoor Fluorescent


Anyone recognize these labels?

Some bright light & vibrant greens I have
L to R - Billie Green Meadows, Claire's Jen Jen, OPI Gargantuan Green Grape, Ardene Applitini, Sally Hansen Green with Envy, Claire's Dream Catcher, Colour Club Limelight, Billie Lime

The last 2 polish's on the right, Colour Club Limelight, and Billie Lime, are very, very similar, Billie Lime is just a shade darker from Colour Club Limelight ( oops, thats Color Club )


L- OPI Gargantuan Green Grape, R-Ardene Appleitini

I really like the peppy green! Too bad the Ardene brush isn't that easy to handle, I never tried it but the same thing happens to me sometimes and it can so disappointing, especially when a shade is very nice.
