NOTD: China Glaze Peace on Earth

I picked up a few extra China Glaze Christmas 2010 colours after being so impressed with Mistletoe kisses, Sugar Plums and Frosty. This shade is called Peace on Earth and immediately caught my attention being an olive green. Unfortunately for me this one came off as a miserable yellow-green rather than the rich olive green I had hoped for. The pictures shown all have 2 coats with no top coat.

Let's start with the good, this polish is very opaque, I could have got away with 1 coat. Now the bad - thick formula, shows brush lines slightly when dry, completely unforgiving of any nail imperfections like ridges (which I have) and not good for us pale people at all. I am sorry to say this colour was not my cup of tea... but for those of you who aren't so pale like me...I suspect it would look stunning. I must also apologise for my cuticles in these shots... dry summer hands.

 As there was no direct sunlight this one has been taken with flash outside.

Also taken with flash

I removed it after 1 day - in fact I think it looks better in the photos than it did in real life. That one is going straight to the back of the nail polish box. A complete colour fail. lol
