Essie Armed and Ready

Armed and Ready is from Essie's Go Overboard collection for Spring 2012.  I don't know what took me so long to wear this, because it's gorgeous!

I've seen a lot of people describe this as a green, but to me it's more gray than anything.  Maybe more of a green toned gray.  It also has this lovely copper/gold shimmer that really makes it pretty.  The shimmer is not as apparent in darker/indoor lighting, but I wouldn't call it a "hidden shimmer" either.

No complaints about application; it went on pretty smooth.

This is 2 coats.

China Glaze Call of the Wild

It's been a long time!  My nails have been breaking left and right and I haven't felt much like doing my nails.  My nails are super nubs, so of course I had to put on a vampy polish.

China Glaze Call of the Wild isn't anything super special or unique.  It's just a nice basic dark reddish brown cream.  Perfect for short nails and I'm loving it.

I had a hard time painting my nails, but this had nothing to do with the formula.  The formula is nice, but again, nothing to write home about.
