Claire's 'Emerald City'

Claire's Emerald City - 2 coats & 1 coat of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat 

WHEW  the nails i am wearing in these photos are NOT the Nailene nails below - i cannot remember a time when this many nails popped off in 24 hours............... I like to try new things and i like bargains so i picked up another -unnamed- brand and my nails are popping off like crazzzzzzy! It may be different factors such as; glue adhesion, the state of my nails, aliens.... whatever it is - I know that I am not doing this stunning Claire's polish any justice.

This polish was in the Claire's 10 items for $10 bucks at my towns mall, so i snagged it and a few other colors...... If there are any more left at the end of the week i hope to snag those, too; for back ups and franken fodder. This is heavenly!!!!!

I have read that this polish 'Emerald City' is a shimmer, but to me it appears to be a foil- I hope to do a little more research as this polish, along with a gorgeous red, blue and gold came out around X-mas time and were blogged about heavily. I suppose I will find out for sure when I remove it as foil polish's leave a lovely silver haze all over your fingers. If I knew how lovely this was, I would have picked it up for full price, it's totally worth it.

I also rushed to pick up a fresh supply of the shorter nails I use= Nailene 'full cover nails in square' they are $8.99 at Zellers stores in Canada, and right now at the Zellers store in my town, The Nailene 200 pack of 'Curved' active nails are $6.79..... on clearance. 

Sad news though, no new Wet n' Wild polish's have appeared in my small Canadian town yet..... 

 - these are NOT the nails I am wearing right now the ones i have on are not fab -

That is a really pretty dark green.
It looks like a fir tree.

Erm, may I ask you something?
Why do you use false nails? It sounds like a load of hassle and obviously adds to the expense of the enterprise. On the other hand they do look good but do you ever just go "natural'?
This polish does look foil-y - a bit darker than Urban Decay Cult but in the family. Very nice.
