Ninja Polish Shillelagh is a gorgeous green shimmer and is described by the maker as follows:
|shil·le·lagh (sh-ll, -l) Noun - An irish word for a cudgel made of blackthorn, oak, or other hardwoods. Usually slightly smaller than a walking stick or cane. Good for quick repetitious beating of individuals. Also used by some witty irish males to refer to their ..er...um....well you can figure it out! Also known to be used by Leprechauns to call their rainbows! |
Ninja Polish Shillelagh from the Enigma collection is a magically delicious polish that reaches through the rainbow for the most perfect shades of green with the most magical sparkle. Shillelagh is unlike most color shifting polishes because it requires no base color, or 'underwear', and is opaque in 2-3 coats, all on its own. It contains all the color shifting shimmer and sparkle that you can handle on your nails! This polish needs to be seen in person to be appreciated fully. This polish is being released in conjunction with not only St Patrick's day (fun fun) but also with the theatrical release of Oz, the Great and Powerful...so exciting! So get your bottle of Shillelagh...it's magically delicious!
That description is perfect and this polish is so fun and beautiful! The way the green shifts from light green to dark, almost emerald green and the gold, and even sometimes bronze, shimmer dances in the light has me imagining leprechauns dancing over my fingers! I used 3 thin coats (but probably could have stopped at two) and no topcoat for the photos. All photos taken inside unless otherwise noted.
This polish, along with Shamrock Floam, will launch on Saturday, March 9, 2013.
