Essie - Stylenomics

Happy Thursday!  Today I have a partial polish fail for you.  We take the good with the bad over here at Polished Cousins, ok?  I picked up this bottle of Essie Stylenomics because it looked like the perfect deep, dark hunter green for fall.  I just bought some sick brown boots and figured this was the perfect polish to go with them.  Essie describes Stylenomics as:  a wealthy  rich, opulent dark green.  I like that.  I want my nails to look wealthy and rich with my hip new boots.  But my nails were black.  Don't get me wrong, I love black polish.  But, I wanted dark green!  I wanted the bottle color!

In all fairness, this polish is gorgeous, applied like a dream and looked really nice.  It just wasn't what I thought I was getting.  In my light box, it looks sort of green.  I'll post a crappy cell phone pic too so you can see what it actually looked like.

This is what it actually looked like on my

Why you no look like this on my nailz?

What do you think?  Do you have a polish that looks one way in the bottle and completely different on the nail?

  1. Completely agree. I bought the 4 mini set for this color and total disappointment :(

    1. Good, I'm glad I'm not crazy! It's a nice formula and nice color but it's not what I wanted.

  2. I can definitely see the deep, green tint in your lightbox pics, but yeah, without careful lighting it's not even close to the bottle. :/

    (love those boots!)

  3. I thought this would end up like butter LONDON's British Racing Green. What a shame.
