Every once and a while I seem to loose judgement when I buy a polish. I know that a lot of nailpolishlovers out there just craves green polishes. I'm not one of them. I love the colour green but just not on me. I love how it looks in the bottle but once it gets on my nails I get really uncomfortable. It's weird but I suppose I'll get used to it one day. I'll probably wake up one morning and realise that green is suddenly my colour. That's how my love for taupe colour started.
Anyway, this is Decadence from Barielle. So let's move on to the photos, shall we?
As you all can see, Decadence is a blueish green with a pretty pearl shimmer. I'm tempted to call it absinthe green beacuse of the name Decadence but that wouldn't be a fair description of the colour. Absinthe is a more pure, neutural green while this is, like I said, blueish green. It goes on smooth though and I'm sure that this is the standard 3 coats. I can't say if it stays on though beacuse I took it off after these photos were taken.But for any green-lover out there I'm sure that this is a must-have colour.
So what book do you recommend for a green polish that's called "Decadence"? Well, since my studies are now focused on Paris in the litterature, my mind is absorbed by the poetry of Baudelair. I'm not the person that usually likes poetry but there's something about Baudelaire I like. It can be the fact that he combines beauty with the macabre, just like Edgar Allen Poe did. And I've read the novels of Poe since I was about 9 I think. So, with this polish I recommend some dusty books written by either Baudelaire or Poe, curl up with a glass of absinthe (but don't drink it beacuse it tastes aweful!) and feel a bit "decadent".
