China Glaze Starboard
Hope everyone had a wonderful Saint Patrick's Day. As usual, I'm late in the game to posting my holiday/celebration themed mani. I can blame the awful weather we have had all week. Raining days make for terrible picture taking. I still gave it a shot because the color was just too pretty not to share.
Gone are the days of sharing a pitcher of green beer with my friends. What's changed? Kids and the fact I'm just getting older. But we still can have fun and celebrate a little right? Aside from the usual corned beef and cabbage dinner, which was super yummy by the way, I also sported a green mani my kids approved.
Starboard is from China Glaze Anchors Away collection, released in spring of 2011. This was a green I didn't think I would like when it was first released. Then about a month ago, I spotted the green bottle in the clearance bin over at Ulta. Who am I to walk away from a bargain? I don't own many greens, so this was a easy green pick for me. Can I just say how glad I got this color? Wow, I'm loving this green!
You have to excuse the mani since it's actually a couple days old. Even though it's not a fresh mani, I still had to share.
This is definitely a true green. It doesn't lean too yellow, nor does it lean blue. I have heard it being referred as "grass green". I have to say I agree.
A crème formula, having a jelly-like quality to it; and it dried to super nice glossy finish. This was 2 beautiful smooth coats. I think Starboard has amazing wear-power on me. I'm on day 3, and I think it's still looking good, though a bit more tip wear is showing. I can't get over how much I'm loving this color on me. This is a definite "must" for any green lovers out there.
