My love of chartreuse nail polish is well documented on this blog. Every spring when the pollen is EVERYWHERE I get the chartreuse nail polish itch. Plus, I pretty much lived in OPI Life Gave Me Lemons and China Glaze Be More Pacific last summer.
So, when I saw Color Club had a chartreuse polish in their new Desert Valley collection I had to order it immediately.
In the bottle Prickly Pear looks like a lovely creamy chartreuse. Unfortunately this polish just doesn’t look good on the nail. The formula is a jelly and it’s super thin so I needed 4 coats. I will give this polish credit as the finish and shine is absolutely gorgeous.
Last weekend was one of my best friend’s 30th birthday. We went all out and had a fantastic weekend. I was wearing Prickly Pear on Thursday night when I had dinner with her family and a few friends and everyone was so confused by my nails.
That being said, I asked y’all on Instagram if you thought this polish was ugly pretty or just straight up ugly and quite a few of you liked Prickly Pear! So maybe it’s just me.
Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump and let me know if you think this polish is ugly pretty or just ugly.
If you’re in the ugly pretty category you can pick up Prickly Pear from Amazon.
