Straight out, I absolutely love this colour. It is so gorgeous! My boyfriend and I had our own little christmas the other day and this was one of my presents from him. What's great is that I wouldn't have chosen this colour myself but once it was on my nails I was so pleased, I seriously couldn't (and still can't) stop staring at it.
It's Rimmel's Green With Envy (819), which is an odd name since it really isn't that green, I'd personally give it a more 'Mermaid's Tear' sort of name, because it's actually a really lovely teal colour. It's also part of their "60 Seconds" range which meant even though I needed 3 coats it took no time at all.
All in all, I am unexpectedly in love with this colour.
This part is in answer to interest some people expressed in how well my hair dye fades. I know a lot of people worry about this sort of thing; when it comes to dying hair un-natural colours and how quickly it fades and needs renewing.
For a proper reminder look here, which has photos of my hair the day after I dyed it purple (Directions - Plum).
It's been a month since I dyed it and in that time I washed it about 6 times (with lots of dry shampoo), which I know to people who don't dye their hair is just horrendous but to those of you who do dye you know it's pretty much the norm. As you can see the colour has only just started fading, which is amazing. The first photo of the post is also a month's worth of fade.
If you have any more questions on hair dying feel free to ask, I'm thinking about doing some form of hair dye review/FAQ post possibly in the future and maybe show some of my previous colours (pink, red, turquoise...) Tell me what you think!
Here's just a quick comparison between when it was first dyed to a month later.
