The last of my green week manicures

I hope everyone is recovering well from their St. Patrick's Day celebrations well :)

Today I have a green that isn't really "my kind of color", but I think it's pretty anyway :)

"Damone Roberts 1968"
3 coats

This was a limited edition color that was released by OPI but, you had to purchase it from Damone Roberts Salon.  Damone Roberts is a well known eyebrow artist in Beverly Hills, and this color is the color on the walls of his salon.

I had issues with this green, which makes me sad because I wanted it to be so much better :(
The formula was thinner than most OPI pastel colors and thus I needed 3 coats.  Also the formula bubbled and created these very small air bubbles under my top coat. ..Grrrrrrr :(

Other than those issues, the color is very striking, kinda like a 1950's appliances green. You know that green you see on all the appliances in homes from the 1950's.  The color is a bright vintage green but it still has a dusty hue to it, everyone noticed this color on my hands...LOL of all the hair raising colors I come into the office with, this one got the most reactions...hilarious!.

When I see this color, it invokes images of suburban housewives making meatloaf in their lace aprons and high heels, and perfectly coiffed hairdo's...LOL :)

See the bubbles?!..Grrrrrrr.  I hope everyone had a safe and Happy St. Patrick's Day :)
Pin It!

LOL for the bubbles/grrrrr and the raising hair of your colleagues...It's not my fav tone of green but I think it looks very good on you!

I want to love this color, but I just don't. Maybe because my skin is so fair? Dunno. Either way, it looks good on you and it's perfect for St Pat's Day.

Seriously! I have seen a lot of greens passing by since it was St Patricks day but this one is so much different from the ones I have seen!

Absolutely gorgeous!
