China Glaze Peace on Earth

I must say, I still have a love hate relationship with green nail polish.  Ever since my nails stained one time because of the yellow dye in the polish, I've been pretty terrified of the light greens.  Peace on Earth from the China Glaze winter 2010 'Tis The Season collection falls in that category of light greens for me.


I used a base of Seche Natural, 2 coats of Peace on Earth, and a top of Seche Vite.  I can thankfully say I had zero staining (thank you Seche Natural!) but the formula was slightly streaky.


So I'm back to nubbins.  :(  I ended up breaking more nails and got fed up with glue and just cut them all off.  I always hate starting back with nubbins but I must say it makes typing SO much easier.  In the un, you can see that this is almost an Army olive green from the old days - not this new Army green like in the BDUs (which I don't think they even call it that anymore!).


In the shade the color is a little more muted - almost like Zombie Zest without the glitter (or orange...)  It is a nice Christmas like color that I think would be AMAZING with some Konad.  I'm really wanting to break out my Konad lately - not sure what's going on in my head because I don't have the most steady hand or very good patience.

  1. A Holiday Thought...

    Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."
