Upper Green Side

Hey! Today's title sounds funny, but it wasn't me who came up with it. It's the name of Essence polish I bought and painted my nails with few days ago. To make this a quick mani I just added simple aztec-chevron-ish pattern to the green colour using black and white gel pens.

I also matched my nails to my outfit - or was it the other way? It got all together in my mind somehow.

About the polish...
I bought Essence 150 Upper Green Side since I wanted nice light green colour and this one was on sale (to be discontinued later, I guess). The opacity was pleasant surprise, what you see in the photos is just one layer! I loved the formula, I'm also a fan of Essence brushes and the drying time was definitely better than average. But there is a problem with Essence colour&go polishes - they simply don't last. This one was no exception, I got first huge chip on the second day and then some more chipping in the following days.

I must admit I was a bit afraid of green colour on my nails - it is not very common. But I think I found such a nice shade it didn't look wrong at all, my nails actually felt like spring.
How do you feel about green on your nails?
Take care!
