NOTD: CQ Golden Green
Today I’ve got a special polish to share with you all. This was sent to me by my fellow blogger, Nicole of Nightly Nails. Nicole knows how much I absolutely love olive greens, so when she saw this polish she knew I had to have it. It’s called CQ Golden Green, and I love it! The same day I received it I put it on and I was smitten!
Onto the pictures! I used my usual combo of Sally Hansen Nail Quencher and Seche Vite for this mani.
CQ’s Golden Green is an absolutely gorgeous olive hued polish with golden shimmer that glows warmly throughout. As soon as I applied the first coat I knew I was going to love it. The brush was firm yet flexible and the polish itself had a butter smooth texture.
Nicole warned me that you had to baby Golden Green a bit since it has a tendency towards brush strokes, but if it does I must have applied it like a boss because I saw no stroke-i-ness. This is two coats of olive green heaven.
Macro shot of Golden Green. I love how much of the green base shows through the golden shimmer, neither aspect is stronger than the other. The base and the shimmer share the glorious spotlight. This is perfection. ♥
I really cannot get enough of this polish. I love eating green olives just as much as I love wearing olive green polish on my nails, so I feel like it was fate (with a little help from Nicole ;-)) lending a hand when CQ Golden Green landed on my doorstep. I don’t know entirely too much about the brand, but I’m pretty sure she said that it’s available at Rite Aid stores.
