China Glaze Unpredictable Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Unpredictable Nail Lacquer ($4.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “multi-dimensional gorgeous green.” It’s a seafoam-like green that flashes from true seafoam green to darker, almost forest green (but there’s still some aqua to it that it’s not true forest green). The only similar shade I could think of was OCC Chimera, which matches the darker green color you see at an angle. If you know of a dupe, please share it with us!

Beautiful Beginnings with Kiehl’s

Beautiful Beginnings with Kiehl’s

What was the first Kiehl’s product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: Though I may not review the brand very often, I actually use numerous products on a regular basis, and it’s one of the few brands I repurchase from. It’s an affordable, practical range of effective skincare products. Right now, I have a Kiehl’s body wash, Creme de Corps, body sunscreen, and tinted moisturizer all in rotation.

Share your first time experiences with Kiehl’s in the comments! 🙂

Color Club Editorial Nail Lacquer

Color Club Editorial Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “peridot duochrome.” It’s a yellowy, dirty gold with brown and green in it that flashes from gold to grass green. It is, not surprisingly, a dupe for Chanel Peridot. The also recently-released China Glaze Rare & Radiant is rather similar as well (to be reviewed). Ozotic #507 is a bit darker, more green to blue than gold to green.
