Absinthe Fever

If I was able to wear only ONE nail polish for the rest of my life what would it be?  A thermal! It’s almost like cheating cuz it’s multiple colors in one. Today’s indie nail polish is no exception!  I’m wearing Absinthe Fever that I picked up from my fellow blogger’s shop: Polish Alcoholic. Shown here is one basecoat, three coats of Absinthe Fever, and one coat of seche topcoat.

Absinthe Fever is dark green when cold, and light green when warm.  Even though it transforms between two different colors (like most thermals), I swear- there’s 4 colors in there!!  Sometimes the dark green looks like a bright forest green and other times it looks like a deep dusty teal like in my collage pic.  And when it’s warm it turns an electric spring green, but sometimes it looks more muted like a chartreuse.  I can’t tell if it just seems that way due to different lighting conditions, or if it really turns 4 colors.  I dunno, but me likey!

As you can see, I’ve got VNL after three coats… I know some people don’t like visible nail line.  But VNL has always been fine with me, especially with a jelly finish like this one.  Absinthe Fever is so freakin cool!  I also made sure to wear my Christian LaCroix Absynthe perfume yesterday and today so I’m all matchy-matchy.  I’m purely intoxicating, everyone!

Polish Alcoholic sells a bunch of other fun specialty polishes too like Mermaid of Log Ness (thermal) and Gold Digger (gold leaf topper).  Or check them all out here at her etsy shop: Polish Alcoholic
