China Glaze Kiwi Cool-Ada

For my St. Patrick's Day manicure, I chose the hot neon green China Glaze Kiwi Cool-Ada also from the Poolside collection.  I'm not much of a green fan, but I have to say that this color was easy to wear (especially given the holiday) but now it's Friday and I'm just barely taking it off.  It's very highlighter green - bright and out there.  I used a base coat of Seche Natural, one coat of China Glaze Snow, 2 coats of Kiwi Cool-Ada and then smoothed it out with a top coat of Seche Vite.  However, this was a day where I didn't eat for some odd 19 hours and started shaking (Spring Break makes me lazy) so you can see how I didn't wait long enough on my ring finger and ended up smearing my polish with the brush.  Lovely.  The formula was nice though - a little more streaky than Pool Party, but again I was shaking a bit.

Sun pictures are as follows - as you can see, this color really does glow on your hands

And a couple in the shade - 

I wish I had some kind of 80s party to go to, I'd have a blast with this color.  Not sure if I could mentally wear a green on a pedicure, but I figure it's a good chance to try. ^_^
