Absinthe was the colour I was most looking forward to wearing once it arrived.
It's a beautiful glittery green, it makes me think of Dorothy from The wizard of Oz' ruby slippers (the sparkle that is, not the colour). The first thing I said to my husband when I was sat applying it was "It's like the emerald city meets dorothys' slippers, if that makes sense?" He gave me a look like I was crazy and carried on watching his cycling programme. Yeah, he's not likely to be interested in my nails or Ruby slippers really is he? :)
I was really impressed by the application. I was expecting to have to layer on lots of coats but I almost got away with just one. It's thick and has a green polish with green fine glitter and bigger glitter pieces mixed in so one coat will be enough if you apply a thick layer. I finished with a clear 2x gloss top coat.
