Maybelline Forever Strong - Green Miracle 720 and China Glaze - This Is Tree-mendous (Happy HoliGlaze Christmas Collection 2013)

I bought this green a while ago at a discount store....the green metallic shimmer just called out to me and it needed to come home with me. It was sitting on my little polish "Helmer" for a while and it was overtaken by all the Essie's, Opi's, indies and China Glaze's until now.
Green Miracle is a grey green jelly with a ton of green metallic shimmer, in low light it looks quite dark and in the sun it's metallic green goodness!

The formula is thin and you need to apply a fair amount of polish with as little brushstrokes as possible. Otherwise you end up with bald spots..... This was two layers and when you look carefully you can see the bald spot problem on my ring finger....

Next day, I added China Glaze This Is Tree-mendous on the tips (to disguise some sleight tipp wear).

Quite the Christmas combination.....
Usually I like it better to make a gradient from the base of the nail, but well...that does not disguise any tipp wear, now does it?!
