China Glaze Running in Circles Nail Lacquer
China Glaze Running in Circles Nail Lacquer

Hey, Emerald! It’s Going to Be Your Year!

China Glaze Running in Circles Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “cilantro green shimmer.” It’s a vibrant, brightened emerald green with light and dark emerald green glass flecks of shimmer/sparkle. Zoya Holly is darker. Sinful Colors HD Nails is similar in color, just sheerer and it has much finer shimmer. Wet ‘n’ Wild Sagreena the Teenage Witch is a bit darker and has finer shimmer.

Heavy on the shimmer, Running in Circles had an interesting finish–there was something about the base color that almost looked jelly-like.  It was fully opaque after two coats of polish, and it applied evenly without streaking or pooling along the edges.  This shade is definitely fitting for the holiday season, but it’ll also work on other occasions, because of its brightness.  Plus, it is the color of the year for 2013, so you can be on-trend before the 31st!  I’m sure by this time next year, we’ll all have half a dozen emerald green polishes and may even start looking a little green around the cuticles :)

Running in Circles is sparkling and shimmery, so it really catches the light well. It is nicely pigmented and applies well.

    I laughed heartily at this. I totally plan on doing an emerald NYE look, lol.

    I think this one’s going to be my Xmas polish. When I got it in the mail a couple of weeks ago it blew me away, what a green!

    As much as I love trying different nail colors and green is one of my favorites (wearing Orly Under the Mistletoe now), this one scares me a bit. Don’t know if I would have the confidence to pull it off.

    So pretty and sparkly! I like how the base color is jelly-like too~ ^^

    I don’t have very many greens, this is lovely!! I have a Confetti in My Favorite Martian (green glitter) that may work over a green to make a dupe.
