KleanColor: Melon Green & Peaceful Heart

Hello lovelies. Last night I decided to go out into left field again and pulled out my mini bottle of KleanColor Melon Green. One of those beautiful, bright, "hideous" yellow-greens. One of my absolute favorite shades of green.



Being a KleanColor polish my hopes were not high as far as application, and I was not disappointed. Took three coats that actually did not fully dry in an hour, as evidenced by the sheet marks on my index finger. And I was careful! That was three thin coats that took me an hour to apply and then an hour of dry time before I sprayed for bed.



Look at that pretty silver shimmer they snuck in there. I am totally in lurve with this color. Even if it was kind of a pain. Trying to facilitate some happy thoughts I added a layer of the KleanColor Peaceful Heart this morning.



This is such a lovely glitter.... in the bottle.... It is lovely, just much more sparse than I thought and the base is quite thin. Those two hears were the only two I managed to fish out. I guess on the bright side there will be more in there for later.



It does add a nice, subtle touch, though. My cousin, Alexis, is at it again!



It's balloons! She's so creative. I may have to steal this idea at some point. ;) So cute.

So it looks like the "daily goal with bonus" thing on SwagBucks is going to be a regular feature. This is good because Yay bonuses!, but... I dunno. This past month made me a little crazy and more than a bit dejected. I did reach the goal every day, but... it makes me a little sad that I had no help and Aaron was my only support. I know I'm doing it mostly for myself, but I'm always there for my friends, and searching for random crap for 3 minutes is far easier than things I've been asked to do for people.... *shrugs* Just lets me know that if I plan on going for it this month to not even bother bringing it up to anybody. I'll just make myself crazy and keep it to myself. Can't wait for the 5th to see how high my goal ticker jumps up.

Ok, so plenty more pretty-pretty-polishes still to come. Hope my moping hasn't scared you away. lol I haven't heard anything about the Sinful Colors scandal recently (aside from Revlon's apology and the removal of posts) so maybe I'll start working on those again soon. Happy Hump Day!

  1. That's such a fun, bright colour. And the glitter is really pretty. It feels good to have a little moan at times, especially since it seems your friends could be a little bit more helpful. Oh well.

    1. Thanks. :) I do feel a little better about it. Bright ugly green helps, too. lol

  2. What a great color--too bad about the formula, but I guess at least it wasn't too expensive.

    I admit I don't have a clue about SwagBucks so have been skipping those bits. Sorry!

    1. I seem to always have issue with KleanColor (except the metallics) so I try not to spend too much on them. Aw, it's ok. I mostly meant my offline friends that I *know* have time to spare. ;)

    1. Sometimes, yeah. :/ On the bright side I did get a few surprises from people I didn't expect so I guess it kind of works out. I'm hoping the other glitter with all the different hearts works out a bit better.
