Absinthe from the Velvet Goth collection is a beautiful emerald green polish, with lots of silver & green glitter flecks and larger hexagonal green sequin pieces.
Last time I layered the polish over a coloured base, this time Ive gone without and done two coats over a clear base coat.
This is really beautiful with the two coats, one coat gives you a sea green colour, similar to the colour of the cap, whilst two coats is much more emerald & glittery, like the colour in the bottle. I found this to be much glossier then Obsidian, but still with the matte texture.
This lasted around 3 days before I chipped it, but with a top cost it would probably last longer. Removal was surprisingly easy compared to other glitters. I think this will be on my nails over Christmas as it is very pretty and wearable.
You can pick these up from Models Own or Boots for £5, or if you're feeling lucky, why not enter my 250 Bloglovin followers give away to win 5 Models Own polishes of your choice?!
What do you think, a good colour? I'm sure the only absinthe I've ever had however was much more neon lime than emerald! Xx
