China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “sea foam green.” It’s a pale, sea foam green (or aqua green, if you prefer) with very fine white micro-shimmer. Butter London Fiver is the closest shade I have to this, but Fiver is a cream finish (no shimmer) and a touch lighter. MAC In the Limelight is bluer, darker, and a cream.

The formula was slightly on the thicker side but still rather manageable, so it wasn’t troublesome to work with when I applied it. Keep Calm, Paint On was full opaque in color after two medium coats of polish. Despite its pale coloring, I didn’t have issues with streaking, which tends to be something that pastels are prone to.  It applied fairly evenly and smoothly, and it didn’t bubble or pool along the edges.  The drying time seemed a bit faster than the average polish with this color.  I usually get a week of wear with minor tip wear but no chipping with China Glaze’s formula.

Another possible dupe for this — looks almost exactly like Julep in Shenae, which I’m wearing on my nails right now. Very light seafoam green with opalescent shimmer, though it’s hardly noticeable.

This is one of my least favorites from the Avant Garden collection. It is just too pale for my skintone and tends to give me lobster fingers. I do however love the micro-shimmer and I’m sure it will look great on other people.

Just bought this shade and put it on in my car….Love it! So gorgeous, I know this is going to become my goto spring color this year.
