Hump Day HARE: Ghostwood National Forest

Purchased By Shelby Lou

I am annoyed by many things this week. I just found out that I need to renew my social worker license before the end of this month--almost a year sooner than I should have to--due to some new changes made by the licensing board. I am beyond annoyed. Not only am I basically get cheated out of money by having to renew sooner (I hate the government), I also have to shell out for a continuing education class. All unplanned expenses this month. Guess I can't buy the new Super Chic Lacquers after all, boo.

And then I got a papercut right by my cuticle on my middle finger swatch-hand. Really?! I covered it up though, I wouldn't subject you guys to that haha.

Today's Hump Day HARE is Ghostwood National Forest, one of the newest additions to the Welcome To Twin Peaks series. I was pretty sure I would dislike this, but it was the only green I had untried of my Hares. Ghostwood is a very dark olive green jelly with gunmetal glitters in dots, hexes, and squares, gold and gunmetal flakes, and purple shimmer.

My swatch shows three thin coats. In some lights this polish looks black, in brighter lights it is definitely dark green. The gunmetal dots took on a super-pale lavender hue to me, so I did some edgy triangles with Essie Nothing Else Metals. I used regular old scotch tape for those--much easier than striping tape! I must have been inhaling too many fumes though because I forgot how smooth of a surface one-coat metallics need--oops. It still looks better than those China Glaze Crinkled Chromes though haha!

You can check out the macro I posted on my instagram to get a better look at all the goodies inside this polish. I like this much more than I thought I would, but it is much darker than anything I've worn in awhile. I'm not pumped about this mani, it leaves me feeling a little meh.

Would you rock this super-dark polish? Do the Crinkled Chromes still give you nightmares? I'm sorry if I retraumatized you.
