Yay for the Green Fairy - Sephora by OPI's Absinthe makes the heart

Welcome back my dear fiends!

Winter is still around and not the tiniest bit of sun in sight. So, I am not really in the mood for fun colored pastels yet. I still need darker, mysterious colors :-)
So for today, I picked Sephora by OPI's Absinthe makes the heart for you.
Trust me, it is a color that is really hard to capture right on camera. The tiny dark green reflects this polish features never show up on the pics. I guess a lot of bloggers who reviewed it said that for their taste, the polish isn't green enough. Well, I guess if you think of a classic dark green, yes I would agree. But I see a gorgeous antiqued old gold-green shimmer in it, which I really like. The base is a shimmery dark grey. The polish is absolutely unique in my stash, I don't have anything like it. So go ahead and see for yourself :-)

Oh I just loooove the microglitter!

It took 3 coats to be opaque enough for me, but I guess 2 are okay as well, if you don't like the polish to be too dense

The formula was no-fuss easy to work with. I do like the brushes a lot.

I also did some layering experiments with this one, I used 2 coats of Absinthe makes the heart and topped it with OPI's Breathe Life polish, which is a very sheer, light shimmery airy blue

Not too bad huh? I guess I will experiment some more, maybe picking a polish that brings out the green more, I might just try Creative's Turquoise Tint...we'll see :-)
