O.P.I Jade is the New Black + Essie Shine of the Times

Hi! Jade is the New Black was sitting in my untrieds foreverrrr.. along with like 5 other greens. Shame! I needed to pluck a green so I picked this - and it's gorgeous!

2 coats of this loverly Jade creme
(pictured wet and not full clean up, lol)

Was really not feeling like a plain creme though so I jazzed it up with Essie Shine of the Times + Matte About You.

pretty cute but I have to say I am not a huge SotT fan.. it is sooo overly dense to me (I majorly thinned it out here!!) and it just doesn't flash the rainbow in the bottle.. 

So pretty! I just love looking at it - but I think I'll need to find a similar flakie that isn't so dense and wants to flash more than orange and yellow! 

Almost the weekend :)


  1. Oooh, I really like SoTt over Jade, especially matte! I wish it was a little thinner too, but I sill love it!

  2. Gorgeous combo! I still have yet to get Jade is the New Black, but the more I see pictures of it, the more I want it. I have Don't Mess with OPI thinking that it was too similar, but they are definitely different.

  3. Mel, this is so gorgeous! I love both of these polishes, but together they're even more amazing!

  4. I really need to get that Jade!!! So pretty!

  5. What an awesome combo!
