Living Water or Oh Christmas Tree?

Sometimes I wonder what the chemists in nail polish labs are thinking. They have such a different view on putting colors together or maybe it's me. When I ask for a Navy blue with green and blue glitter just slightly peaking through, what would you make me if you were the chemist? How about an aqua base with LOTS of ice blue glitter that leans green?

I have had several rejects in my quest to make Tierny's dream of Living Water perfect. The down side is that glitter tends to "eat" the polish. So it has been a delicate balancing act. We have it right now and it is in production, but some of the rejects are gorgeous. One in particular is so friggin' glitterful and gorgeous I can't stop thinking of it. I am actually wearing it as my manicure now. Everyone I have shown this reject to is just as awe struck by it's beauty. I talked to the lab to find out what will happen to this color. If I reject it, they can sell it to someone else. I love this color so much, I can't bear to let that happen. I think I may just buy it and make it part of a future collection.

But enough about that color - I am not going to show you that one. Instead I am going to show you another equally beautiful reject. This is one that isn't going to make it into the line. Why you ask if it is so amazing won't this one make it in the line? Well because I feel like I have seen it before. Maybe not exactly this one, but pretty close. So I will show it to you and you can tell me which color you think it matches. This is a deep green that leans aqua with some ice blue glitter.

I wish I got better pictures of this one. It is soo pretty. So any ideas of who has a similar color? It is not similar to ChG Emerald Sparkle, the color base is more aqua leaning than a pure green and the glitter is not green at all, it is an ice blue - but it is equally as gorgeous.

  2. That one is pretty, but I can see why you don't want to include it in your line. Now I'm interested to see what the other reject looks like!

  3. it kind of reminds me of Orly's Meet me under the mistletoe but with glitter instead of the foily/shimmer/flecks.

  4. @rmcandlelight It is more green and much darker than Charla. But yes that same ice blue glitter effect! You are good!

  5. This looks like China Glaze Atlantis if the glitter was holographic =)

  6. To me, this looks like a darker version of China Glaze Mistletoe Kisses, from their recent Holiday collection.

  8. This is so pretty. I don't see this polish resembling any suggestions from above. This looks very close to BB Couture Redwood Forest. The base color is the same, but RF has blue microglitter, whereas the glitter in this one is bigger. Redwood Forest is one of my favorite greens ever, but I do wish the light blue glitter was more prominent.

    : )

  9. Hey! Stumbled onto this post from another blog! To me, the colour looks a bit like MAC's Jade Dragon... also a gorgeous colour!

  10. Very pretty! I kind of see what you're saying about it looking familiar, but I can't put my finger on it. I can't wait to see the other reject that will become part of the line!
