Models Own: Emerald Black (Sparkles)

I must apologize, first off, for my spazziness. I didn't realize that I didn't have my camera set to take close-up shots until way late in the day. So these aren't the best pictures, but the inner color of Emerald Black was kind of hard to capture anyway.

These are all one horribly out of focus luxurious coat! Indoors it does look mostly black, but in sun and bright light there is a very dark, vampy emerald green. From some angles there's even a hint of almost sapphire. It kind of reminded me of dark green velvet. You know how when you rub it one way you get the color, then if you rub it the other way it goes almost black? Like that. So pretty. I was hoping that matte-ifying it would bring the green more forward, but instead it behaved more like Purple Blue.

Definitely better shiny. I was bored (and it's been kind of an off-day) so I decided to give A Million Sparkles a less-dense run.

Pretty. :) Oh, it's probably hard to see with that glare....

Pretty. :) lol But, I'm done with it. I've got Indian Ocean lined up next (and Copper Pot for Abbie after that) so it's time to take this off and move on. I know Indian Ocean is sheer, but I'm going to just go ahead and let it do it's thing naturally. I do have a few swatches over different bases on my nail wheel that I'll be sharing with it.

In other news, I'm happy to announce that I reached my SwagBucks bonus goal for today as well. That's two in a row! :D

Awesome. Of course today's survey (the only way I'm making that many bucks) was a headachy 45minute bombardment of birth control insanity. I'm all for birth control (the fewer screaming children running around the better), but my goodness that was a challenge. Ah well, it's done and I have my points. lol Happy Middle of the Week!


  1. i can't wait to see Indian Ocean! it looks so pretty! i like this one too but it sucks that there isn't....more to it? but it's still a nice black if it's only a 1 coater!

    1. I'm pretty psyched, too. The bottle is so pretty! Like a magic potion or something. :)

  2. Hmmm I love my bottle, it never looks black for me but always velvety :)

    1. Ooooh, you're lucky! I don't mind the black-looking so much, though. This is my only really vampy color. :)


I love hearing from you!
