It Looks Like Lizard Eyes

I got my new China Glaze Metro collection goodies and decided today was a good day to start to try them out.  My eye immediately went to Trendsetter.  This is a funky yellow brown color with tiny gold shimmer.  I don't have anything else like it. That gets me excited.

This went on nicely.  Nice formula, good opacity.  The color is not going to be for everyone.  It's that funky! I did inside and outside shots for you.

Don't you just love this color? Look at that shimmer?? Such awesomeness! Of course, being me, I just had to funky it up. So I grabbed another new China Glaze Westside Warrior and stamp plate M 61 and went to town.  Then I added my funky french to the mix.  I thought this green would go nicely with the yellow.  I almost chose a brown, but that'll be for next time.

Lately, people at work have been coming up to me asking to see what I have on my nails that day.  The reactions to this one were comical.  One coworker said it looks like reptile skin. Another said it looks like lizard eyes.  Lizard eyes? I see it now-I didn't before.  Kind of makes me think this could be my first nail fail!

I'm going to let you guys decide.  Is this a nail fail or not?

  1. Weeell this is not really my type of color. I'm still on the fence about it though, because I did see one or two swatches where I liked the way it looked. But in the majority of swatches I haven't really cared for it. Interesting!

  2. This has a very retro vibe about it. I am definitely going to be getting Trendsetter--I love playing with odd color like that even though they don't always love me back. :)

  3. Not a fail at all! I can't say that color is for me, but it works on you. (I've never been much for yellows or oranges) I do want to see it with the brown..I think that would look great too!

  4. @Laura-I haven't decided whether I like this with the green accents-It's certainly not a color for everyone.

    @Paulina, Sandra-glad you like it

    @KarenD- It is retro isn't it? Love it!

    @P&C- I will definitely be doing this again but with brown!
