With Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year being Emerald, I thought it fitting to have my latest NOTD to be SpaRitual’s Emerald City.
The colour is slightly more blue than is shown in the picture above. I find it leans a bit turquoise rather than a true emerald. It’s a beautiful colour which feels more spring than dead of winter. But that’s a good thing – reminds me that the dreary weather isn’t here to stay.
What you see in the above picture is 3 coats (and base & top coat) and 3 days of tip wear. Emerald City is a jelly finish with no discernable shimmer/glitter. It’s just a straight jelly which is refreshing for me. I think I OD’ed on glitter over the holidays and need a bit of a metaphorical cleanse from it. This should do the trick just fine.
