Peace On Earth (China Glaze Holiday 2010)

I LOVE THIS COLOUR. I'm really happy China Glaze included this in their 2010 Holiday collection; it is an unusual colour, especially for a Holiday collection. This would be my first olive green polish and I can already tell it won't be my last. I also love the name, Peace on Earth.  About a year ago I probably would have cringed at a colour like this. (That was back when I wouldn't wear anything but purple or teal/turquoise/blue-green on my nails.)


Yuck...my skin looks weird in the sunlight. I was catching the last bit of available sun at this point!


Despite my love for this colour, it does have some formula issues. =/ There are very slight brushstrokes and I had a hard time getting this too look even. It has the same troubles many metallic colours have. I used 2-3 coats. Some fingers have two coats, some have three. You might not have these same issues if your application skills are better than mine. The small flaws don't bother me too much though, I love this colour and it is unique in my collection. Plus the bottle has a silver cap! =)

Tomorrow is my last day of school before Thanksgiving Break and I'm excited! I really need a break; school has been tough lately.  I normally like to do 2+ posts a week but that hasn't been happening lately. Hopefully during this break I can get to some of the posts I've been wanting to do. School should be slowing down soon though and before long I will be off for winter break. (December 17th I believe.) My senior year is flying by...

Thanks for reading!
Peace and Love,
Serena

  1. Wow, looks gorgeous! I'm really loving China Glaze's Christmas collection this year. I have Phat Santa, Jolly Holly, and Party Hearty (WOW). I haven't tried them yet because I'm saving them until after Thanksgiving but I'm reeeeally dying to put Party Hearty on my nails haha

  2. This is a gorgeous color, and I love it on you! It's definitely on my wishlist.
    And isn't it funny how our tastes in colors change over the years? I'm starting to develop an affinity for olive green too...when I first got into nail polish, olive green was the ugliest color in the world to me. lol.

  3. Hey, is it just me or are your nails getting longer and longer (or is it the olive green that's making them look long)? I love the length of them right now!

  5. @Anna- I'm also waiting to wear Party Hearty...we'll see how long that lasts!
    @ChaosButterfly- I wouldn't have worn this colour before but I'm glad my tastes have branched out!
    @Starving Nail Addict- Thanks! I try to keep my nails short since I play violin in my schools orchestra but at the same time I like having some length. I try to compromise.
    @Phyrra- Its unusual, but its really beautiful.

  7. Ooooh, this looks fantastic! To be honest if I saw this in the bottle I wouldnt have given it a second glance but it looks stunning on your nails :)

    We dont have China Glaze here so I kinda rely on posts like this to help me to decide whats worth ordering online and what isnt!

    Hope you enjoy the time off school ♥
