Sally Hansen Insta-Dri – Chartreuse Chase

SH - Charteuse Chase MainOkay. I am SO EXCITED to write this post, that I’m actually starting it before evening opening the bottle. If you caught my tweet the other night, you knew I was on the prowl for Chartreuse Chase. But let me explain how I got from: not even knowing it existed to I need this polish in my life ASAP.

A week ago Alli reviewed Deborah Lippmann Spring Buds. In the comments, my new friend Magda mentioned searching for chartreuse polishes. I came across a swatch of Chartreuse Chase by Steph over at Steph’s Closet and I knew I had to have it.

Okay! So, the moment of truth? Was it worth the brief stay on my must have now list? Yes. Yes. Yes. If Spring Buds is pollen in a bottle, Chartreuse Chase is its radioactive counterpart. It’s a gorgeous chartreuse, depending on the light it can appear more yellow or more green. It has a subtle, yet magnificent blue flash.  I used three coats to get a nice opaque look and I’m really happy with the results.

You can pick this polish up at Ulta or your local drugstore! Lots of pictures below and I included a little history of the word chartreuse! Go! Look!

TGIF!

Forever 21 Black Magic

Forever 21 Black Magic cover Here comes the broken record: I am seriously loving Forever 21 nail polishes! I’ve tried two polishes in addition to Black Magic; Mint Chip and Cosmic Matter, and I loved both of them. But I have to say, Black Magic might be my favorite! Black Magic is a textured (or sand lacquer…) blackened purple with […] Continue reading →

OPI Umpires Come Out At Night

OPI Umpires Come Out At Night cover At this point we are several weeks into the MLB regular season and my baseball fever is kind of out of control. My friends call my house baseball central.

Pixi Lime Lustre

Pixi Lime Lustre cover I’ve been seriously into green polishes lately! Normally I don’t gravitate towards green polishes but with all the awesome green polishes being released for spring I can’t seem to help myself. For Spring 2014 Pixi released 3 new polishes. Lime Lustre immediately caught my attention. In the bottle I thought I was going to like […] Continue reading →

deborah lippmann Spring Buds

deborah lippmann Spring Buds cover As I sit here and type this post my seasonal allergies are in full swing. That yellow greenish pollen is EVERYWHERE and I hate it. So, when I saw Spring Buds in the bottle I wasn’t exactly thrilled with the color. It looks like pollen! But on my nails I absolutely adore this polish. For […] Continue reading →

butter LONDON Molly Coddled

butter LONDON Molly Coddled cover I know I keep bashing the 2014 color of the year; Radiant Orchid. I just don’t LIKE it. Or at least I thought I didn’t like it. Enter butter LONDON Molly Coddled. I discovered Molly Coddled when I was putting together my Spring 2014 Must Have Polishes post. So when Ulta had their 2 for […] Continue reading →

Essie Fashion Playground

Essie Fashion Playground cover While I adore Style Hunter, this polish is the standout from Essie’s Spring 2014 Hide & Go Chic collection. Essie describes Fashion Playground as a pistachio shimmer. While this polish does have shimmer it’s super subtle. It just keeps the polish from being completely flat. The color is great. There’s no warm or yellow undertones […] Continue reading →

OPI Short-STOP!
