Sally Hansen Green with Envy

I just realized that yesterday was my one-year blogaversary - I find it hard to believe that I've been doing this for a whole year already, but there you are. This is also my 300th post, another landmark. Unfortunately I don't have the funds to do a giveaway right now, since I'm saving up for a new laptop, a new phone, and college expenses, but that doesn't mean I don't greatly appreciate every one of my followers and comments. Thanks, and I hope you stick around for the next year!

Today's polish is one that I've used quite a lot, but somehow managed never to show on Never Unpolished until now. It's Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Green with Envy, and it's one of my favorite green cremes. Searingly bright, though not a neon, Green with Envy is not for the faint of heart.

The first and last pictures are most color-accurate - the sun picture is a bit too yellow. Only the last picture shows how juicy Green with Envy looks, even though it's not a jelly. I really do love this green, and I'd be hard-pressed to find another lime green creme I like as well. Its application is a dream once you figure out that the Xtreme Wear brushes pick up a crapton of nail polish, and it doesn't stain as long as you use a base coat, which you should always do anyway.

I did some nail art with this that I'll be showing soon (probably tomorrow), but I'm thinking I need to pull it out again while it's still baking hot outside. This, Pacific Blue, and Sun Kissed (all Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear) are my trifecta of summer polishes, and I haven't used them enough this year. Until next time!

P.S. I'll also be posting some Harry Potter nail art this week, so look forward to that - how could I not do something for the 15th?

    I want that green now though. Not cool. I need to stop buying polish for a bit but I JUST CAN'T HELP IT.

    Pacific Blue is one of my favorites in the Xtreme Wear line. Lovelovelove it.
