Generally I enjoy the polish itself, but sometimes some color just ask me if I can play with them…and this time, P2’s powerful emerald just whispered to me to play with her a bit, so that’s what I’m going to show here today :)

最近買ったポリでちょっと遊びたくなりまして、重ねたり混ぜたりした中でキレイだったのを選んでみました。ベースは全部P2のpowerful emeraldです。やりたかったことが全部できたので(結果はどうあれ)私としては非常に満足です(;゚∀゚)=3ムッハー


P2 powerful emerald alone (2 coats)

So let’s start with small swatch & review of itself. It’s deep forest green with super-fine shimmer which makes its finish as metallic or even a bit frosty. Application was ultra smooth, even a bit too smooth…or watery, but not too runny. Leaves a bit of brushstrokes but because base color is really deep that you must see very carefully to notice it. Pretty unique itself, because there’s not many of deep forest green polish in the world :)


P2 powerful emerald + Girly Bits Street Magic (2 coats)

Then I added Girly Bits’ Street Magic. I knew it’ll be great on black BUT I wanted to try on dark green, and powerful emerald was perfect shade! Now this combination is really a dream-came-true shade for me, color-shifting pigmented green…it’s so lovely. I’m sure if I put black underneath the shade will differ and this was exactly what I wanted to have. I’m so happy with this, and I really can say I’m happy owner of Girly Bits Street Magic :)


P2 powerful emerald based holo franken (2 coats)

I’m totally amateur of franken, I don’t have so much know-how for it, but simply thought what’ll happen if I mix holo polish with this forest green polish. Holographic deep forest green? Sounds yummy! :D
...Well, although final result that I got after few mixing was not something I wanted, I stopped here because I thought if I’ll need more holo effect or more deep green then I’ll need the whole stuff…suspension base, pigments, spectraflair…which we can’t get here easily :( But I think it’s still pretty! Also franken stuff was pretty fun for me, …again I REALLY want to ask brands to release suspension base here.

    1. Thanks!!
      Forest green holo is something I REALLY don't see around me though I was obsessed with it! I'm sure I need to think about to get more strong linear holo effect, but still...it went pretty :)
