Green-Eyed Monster

Although…with the colour-shifting base polish I chose here (Polish Me Silly’s jade green multi-chrome, Dreamer) this manicure looks less like evil peepers and more like Pascal the chameleon from the animated Disney musical, Tangled.  I don’t think Pascal would ever look so evil, though (unless he was in the midst of delivering yet another tongue-based wet willy to Flynn Rider, that is!)

Here at the tail end of Earth Day (at least according to my time zone; WordPress Standard Time is telling me we’ve already moved on to the 23rd) I thought it would be appropriate to showcase a polish I recently picked up that reminds me so much of nature – either the skin of a gecko (hence the title of this post) or indeed, the lush blues and greens of planet Earth.

This is Polish Me Silly’s Dreamer, a multi-chromatic colour changer from their Mega Multichrome line.  These polishes are so gorgeous, both in terms of colour shift and formulation (they glide onto your nails like satin) I don’t understand how they fly under the radar like they do.  There should be mad rushes on these polishes, wailing and lamentation in the streets by frustrated would-be shoppers (actually, no, I can totally do without the lamentation; I detest the “ninja fast” approach to online shopping.)

But luckily for you and I, Polish Me Silly doesn’t seem to engage in those sorts of retail shenanigans, and there’s lots of these gorgeous multi-chromatic lacquers to go around. And Dreamer is just the most beautiful and unique addition to the line, a rich chromatic that morphs from grass green, to jade, to turquoise, to navy and then back again.

The bottle I’ve shown in these photos is a generously sized mini and retails for $7.50 US. All of Polish Me Silly’s lacquers are actually available in mini sizes, which gives you the option of trying out a whole handful of terrific polishes without total investment in a full size bottle.  You can find Polish Me Silly’s fantastic lacquers on their Etsy site here, and you can also always browse around my archives and see some of the fun looks I’ve come up with using Polish Me Silly’s multi-chromes and more!
