Claire's Mood Polish in Happy/Earthy

As soon as I saw what Claire's Mood Polish in Calm/Wild would do on my nails I ran out to find the rest. Never found them so I asked a dear friend, (you've seen her toes on my blog) to head over to her local Claire's to see f she could find them. Find them she did! So I have the whole set and an extra set for my upcoming Contest/giveaway.

I put them all nicely away in my stash and promptly forgot about them as I was urgently accumulating more nail polish to add to the stash.

So, Tuesday night I decided to wear another. Slowly took each color out and viewed it...until I chose one.

Let me just say this: The labels on the caps, you know, the ones that show the color change colors? Who made those? They are so inaccurate!  Really! Here's the sticker on the cap.
Soooooo incorrect. Look:
I really love these! Mainly because I get a funky French mani with very little effort and also because the colors are so fun! This is pretty much how it looks on me all the time...there were a couple of overly air-conditioned moments at work when my nails were completely dark green, but only a couple.

The formula is easy to work with and the brushes are quite nice. Even more so when you consider the bottles are a bit smaller than the average bottle. I think the most fun about applying these is watching them change color as I'm applying them. Very cool!

The only con for me (and many of you will disagree) is that it is GREEN and when it's sporting both colors it's SCREAMIN' Green. As in, people notice but they don't say anything. I could see their eyes tracking my hands...but no one said anything...until today when they were coral. Still, this one is novel and therefore, I will wear it again!

The Lizard gives Happy/Earthy a rating of Balmy only because of the green. I'm fairly sure it will be my least favorite of the collection.


  1. OMG, that seals the deal. I need to get one of these ASAP. This color(s) look amazing on you! And LOL at people "tracking your hands"!!! Who cares--you look fabulous. :)

  2. Oh, this one was my favorite! I just love it. When I moved and switched divisions, my job is much stricter now on policy, so I can't even wear any bright colors, so I can only sport this in my off time, unfortunately! I think it looks great on you.

  3. I disagree! I love the green and think it looks neat on you. u.u

  4. @Recessionista: well then, RUN! hehehee!

    @Nicole and Skulda: My mother's favorite color was green, so I got my fill of it. You'd think that, now that she's gone, it would hold a special place, but no, she pretty much killed it for me. LOL! Thanks though, I'm keeping it!

    @Lissi: Thank you so much! I like 'em!

  5. This looks amazing, I really love it. It's a shame they don't sell these in Finland.
