Wait, I thought this polish was green? Psych, sometimes it's teal!
Gussied Up Green is a really lovely darkened forest green absolutely packed with shimmer. In normal lighting it does look kind of dark, but stick your hand in the sun and you've got a lovely, lit from within forest green happening. And at the right angle this polish is teal. WHUUUUUT?!!? It's. So. Pretty.
In the bottle you can see purple and blue duochrome. Again, WHUUUUT?!?!. Bananas. The formula on this is okay. It's from around the time when companies were perfecting their Big 3 Free formulas, so Gussied Up Green is a little runny...but completely opaque in two coats, which is what you see in the photos above.
One reason I wanted to bust out Gussied Up Green is because this weekend I got this faaaaabulous belt that's brown, orange, black, mustard and forest green. I'm wearing it with my orange H&M poofy skirt and I wanted my nails to complement the ensemble. Normally I don't put that much thought into matching my nails to my outfits, but today it just seemed right.
Sorry I didn't get my shoes in the photo. They're boring, though. Tiny black wedges. I'm just not that adept with the self-timer and it was early in the morning before work. Everything I'm wearing here is from H&M (belt, skirt, tank). PS this skirt was pockets. I love it.
So there you have it, friends. A beloved polish from one of the best collections of all time. I wonder if Metro will even come close to Rodeo Diva. My guess is no, but I love to be surprised. So tell me, what are your feelings about our old friend Gussied Up Green? Do you have a favorite Rodeo Diva polish? A favorite fall release? Spill.
