Oh Emerald Sparkle. This polish is a legend. And for good reason! Despite my hesitance to pick it up in the first place, I have to agree with the nail polish community at large that this polish was worth the craze.
Emerald Sparkle is a forest green jelly packed with larger green glitter. It’s the perfect green glitter for Christmas or St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve worn it for both!
The formula is average taking into consideration the jelly base. I used three coats in my swatches.
There is alot of confusion surrounding this polish. Similar to OPI My Private Jet, there are multiple versions of this polish. I know I don’t have the original version (I purchased this in March of 2010) but otherwise I don’t have a clue what version I have.
This was originally part of China Glaze’s Holiday 2008 Sleigh Ride collection so it’s only appropriate that I used it for my Christmas Eve manicure. For all the details on that check below the jump!
I always host Christmas Eve dinner for my family at my house. I inherited the honor from my grandmother and since she always made the entire meal from salad to dessert from scratch I try to honor her memory in a sense and do the same thing.
This poses a problem in terms of having a fabulous manicure come dinner time. I planned on wearing a red dress so I wanted to do a green manicure. Emerald Sparkle wears incredibly well so I decided to use it as a base. I used one of my DIY dotting tools and added white and red polka dots with Ulta Snow White and JulieG Sunset Kiss.
I adored the way this manicure turned out! I was even more excited when I realized it matched my Christmas china.
