No. 06 is a milky leaf green in the bottle, but on the nails it turns out as a pure leaf green, the kind that reminds you of tender shoots and fresh foliage after cleansing showers of rain. It contains ultra fine blue shimmer which is not visible post application unless you look very very closely.

Those are the silvery blue shimmer particles, very fine as you can see.

The texture of the polish is creamy, and dries to an opaque glossy finish. But here's the sad part- I hate the formula of this shade! It just does not spread evenly, and streaks like mad! I've found that the brush isn't to blame as I tried applying it with other brushes as well. Something about the formula is faulty, and it really tests my patience.

That aside, the colour of the polish is beautiful. It's a striking green which I've fallen in love with! So how to make a polish that bad work?

You layer it on. Simple.

Here's the trick :
  1. Apply a thin coat of polish, let it dry. Don't worry about how streaky it looks.
  2. Apply a thin coat of clear top coat, matte if you have it. Let it dry.
  3. Apply a second, thicker coat of polish and let it dry. This step helps to conceal most of the streaks.
  4. Seal everything with a clear glossy top coat. This step smooths out any ridges and unevenness left behind.
And the end result is below!
