Claire's Venomous

Today I'm showing you Claire's Venomous. I was lucky enough to win this from Kellie's giveaway a while back.

As you all know, this is a dupe for  Mac's Mean and Green as well as Orly Space Cadet and a bunch of other polishes.

I see why so many nail polish companies have been duping this polish--it's amazing! I cannot tell you how much I loved watching it change colors as I angled my hand differently.

I really love this one, but obviously not enough to stop there. I plan on getting the lovely Orly Space Cadet eventually! 

Prepare for some Venomous spam!

Claire's Venomous is a multichrome that flashes mainly green, olive, and purple. But occasionally I see copper/reddish tones (see second picture). This polish was very sheer and took at least 3 coats to become opaque. I did four just to be sure. I also had trouble with the polish around my tips. It just wouldn't apply right. I think it's safe to say that you'll need to layer this for a good application.

So pretty and unique! This is the only nail polish I have in my collection that looks like this.

I have the other two colors from this Claire's collection--Poison Apple and Evil Queen--so let me know if you want to see swatches! I'd be more than happy to swatch them.

  4. @Zarina Yeah it does. It's almost like a gold-ish olive color.
