My biggest sin is envy and since green is the color of envy...
Why envy? I am guilty of envying people who have traits/talents/genes which I wish I possessed. For example, I might envy a person for having what I consider perfect nails. I might be jealous of someone for being an eloquent speaker, a great writer, or just having the gift for gab, since I am usually awkward and shy until I know someone well. I am horrible at small talk and uncomfortable with awkward silence, so I always envy people who can easily keep up a conversation about seemingly nothing with anyone and do it so easily. I always manage to say something to embarrass myself or completely blank out and not know what to say. I've always wished for a good singing voice and dance skills and so many other things that I can't, but wish I could do, so I envy people who are good at it. Sure, I should be thankful for my own genetics, skills and talents, but they never seem as fun as someone else's. Guess I'm a sinner like the rest of the world...
Representing all of that in a manicure is no easy task, so rather than drive myself insane, I chose two polishes which contained the word "Envy" in their name. For the base I used SinfulColors Envy and added the drips using Ulta Green With Envy. To me, the drips represent a sort of toxic slime of thoughts which slowly drip down and take over. Completely non-productive, but often difficult to catch or stop...
I had the urge to flip all the photos upside down to show the drips flowing in the correct direction, but just in case those are driving you nuts... :)
SinfulColors Envy is a dusty medium green cream. It has a nice formula that was easy to work with. While it seemed thin at first, it did build up to full coverage in just two coats. Swatches are with no top coat...
Color Name/Number: Envy, 960
Number of coats: 2
Top Coat: No
Free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)
So which are you guilty of?
Thanks for looking!
