March Manicure Madness, Day Twenty Nine: The Emerald City of Oz

I love the name of today’s polish – Revlon Nail Enamel 032 Emerald City. It takes its name from The Wizard of Oz, naturally.

Emerald City is a matte polish (quite unusual for Revlon) in a deep, forest green with green microshimmer throughout. It’s a real beauty.

I did 2 coats for nice, even coverage. Below is a picture with flash, so you get a better idea of the colour and shimmer.

I only have one gripe about this polish – tip shrinkage. Not on every nail, but 3 or 4, and it chipped after less than a days wear. C+ for durability, Revlon, if you’re reading…

In summary – Emerald City: beautiful colour, shame about the formula.

I’ve had a few requests recently to post up pictures of my new dog, so, my wish is your command. Please welcome Rupert. He’s a 2 year old brindle Boxer. He enjoys long walks on the beach and meeting new people. He can sit, lie down, shake hands and dance (jump up). He folds himself into a U shape when he’s really excited, and he’s a sucker for cuddles. I got him at the Sligo Dog Shelter a few weeks ago. He’s a big bundle of joy :)

  1. I have long coveted Emerald City. bought a not-as-nice Collection 2000 one last year sometime but it is, as stated, not as nice. Rupert is the cutest. Maybe for April you could just do a picture of him with a different bottle of polish every day? MOAR RUPES PLEEZ THX.

    • I will get you a bottle of Emerald City, clearly the people of Sligo have no idea that such a beautiful polish is in plentiful supply in local pharmacies. Lots more Rupes to come xoxo
