Hello, hello! Today I thought to share with you all a new Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nail color called Green Tea. Has anyone tried a Green Tea or Matcha frozen drink? Starbuck's Green Tea Frappuccino, perhaps? What do I like more than a Green Tea Frap? A nail polish called Green Tea. This may seem quite silly to someone who is not a fan of tea and coffee and nail colors, but for someone like me, it definitely puts a smile on my face. Kudos to Sally Hansen for such a delicious and alluring product name. 

First, I would like to apologize for not posting much lately. I have quite a few products lined up for review and swatches, some outfits of the days, and a couple of fashion hauls, but I have not been able to set aside any time for blogging. I think I will be more consistent after my exams finish up in May. Now, let us get to the review.

I must share that I have received countless compliments for this unique shade. I believe this shade is eye catching because this is not just another mint or a tiffany blue or a pistachio green - all popular and common pastel green shades for the Spring. I would describe this nail polish as a soft milky sea moss green shade. It reminds me of sea green water bodies displayed in pictures of island beaches and tropical cruise ads. 

This nail color has a slightly thick, but not gooey or heavy, creme formula. The application is a bit streaky on the first coat, but with a second or third coat, the appearance can be evened out. I used three coats. I would advise to apply this polish with a light hand, which the pro brush allows you to do with ease. If you apply this polish with a heavy hand, patches may result. I would also wait a few seconds before adding your second or third coat to prevent patchiness. So, the application is slightly troublesome, but not bad. I am very selective when it comes to application and don't try to work with a product even if it is not working for me just because I love the color. This is definitely a workable product. 

I paid between $7-8 for this nail color at Meijers (grocery store). I found this shade in a new seasonal display. I seem to find the most beautiful and random nail polishes while grocery shopping. I have not spotted this shade anywhere else. I have checked the new displays at Target and Walmart, but I have only noticed a shade called Jaded, not Green Tea. Jaded is a deeper blue-green shade than Green Tea. 

Green Tea is a soft and feminine shade. It exudes the ambiance of bone china tea cups, frilly knit table mats, lace frocks, and sunny days. If Essie Mint Candy Apple, China Glaze Re-fresh Mint, Orly Gum Drop, or Revlon Minted is not your cup of tea, then I would try out Green Tea. This shade leans more in the family of these colors rather than colors such as China Glaze For Audrey or Essie's Turquoise and Caicos.
