Green Ocean has an interesting history for a nail polish. Waaaaay back in the day it was a really big deal because it was one of very few affordable flaky polishes available. Usually, it would only pop up around St. Patrick's Day, and if you didn't get to the display quickly, this little shimmery lemming would be gone. Thankfully, SinfulColors included it as part of their summer collection this year, and polish enthusiasts everywhere collectively cheered!
When I look at Green Ocean, I see glittery mermaid magic. In a bottle. But that's probably just me. It's honestly a really well suited name considering the aqua green base that's just loaded with green and blue flakes. And I mean loooooaded. Just one coat for all that shimmery goodness in the photos. Sadly, the sun doesn't want to come out and play today, but I know this polish would just light up in a ray of sunshine!
Application was good. This polish is a little thicker than most SinfulColors polishes, but you don't have to use a lot to get great results! I can feel some of the flakes and see some of them in the photos, but they're not the sharp kind of flakies that some polishes have. In the future, I'd probably go over this again with another coat of clear, just to be sure.
Green Ocean is part of SinfulColors Having a Blast Collection. You can find it on display at Walgreens and other mass retailers for $1.99 a bottle!
