Anyway, thanks to Wet n Wild, green has extended its territory and settled on my finger tips at last!
Wet n Wild Craze nail color in Jade. A golden green that looks positively like the peel of a perfectly delicious Granny Smith apple.
The golden sheen in Jade is more apparent at sunset.
This is probably the most color-accurate pictures, where the yellow tone isn't as overwhelming. When green is worn over red, it tone it down but when it's worn against my skin, it makes it looks pinker in these pictures. (The same reason I think blue based lip color makes your teeth looks whiter is BS...it's not like you are wearing it on top of your stained teeth anyway.)
While we are still on the topic of "jade". I got my first jade bangle bracelet from my mom (No, not a family heirloom, my mom thinks jade bangle is way too old fashioned...More like I begged my mom to get me one as a toy.)
Of course, the jade bracelet isn't really the best of its kind (a really good on in my book would be very watery looking as well as having that fresh minty green tint to it.) but at least it's not bleached or colored.
At first I though I could pull it off...well, I don't think it age me by 20 years (jade is pretty popular among the aunties I think.) but it doesn't really look as good as I imagined...Granted, old fashioned Chinese stuff naturally looks weird when worn with a Chevron freebie T-shirt.
I might think of someway to make it look pretty if I have the time.
