Why do I keep buying these minty greens even they look terrible on my skin regardless of the time of the year?
Jade Jump is a minty slightly dusty green. Holo Green is a diffused holo pale green. It's a little more "green" than Jade Jump, but when I swatched this on its own you can't really tell, so I opted to layer it.
Basecoat: Salon Sciences Fiberglass Network (1 coat)
Color: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Jade Jump (2 coats)
Color: Kleancolor Holo Green (2 coats)
The first photo is the most color-accurate. O Hai, Lobster Hands! Ugh.
I have a love-hate relationship with the InstaDri polishes. The brush is hard to control on my pinky fingers so I usually end up with too big a gap at my cuticle, or I slop it everywhere. Other than that, I think I've gotten the hang of this brush, though I still usually need two coats for complete coverage.
Unlike the Chunky Holo polishes, I didn't need to thin Holo Green at all. It actually didn't even smell as much as the Chunky Holos I've worn do. I will definitely want to try this over something else, because it's lovely and the holo is amazing, even though I couldn't really capture it on camera.
Notice I didn't list my topcoat - it's because I got disgusted and took it off before I got to topcoat. I really should stop buying minty greens.
