Chromium… green?

Posted by on June 2, 2010 at 2:58 pm.

Today I wanted to wear one of the polishes I got yesterday. I had a hard time deciding, and when I was down to 3 to choose from, I started do google swatches of those to see how they looked on the nails. One of them were LA Girl Metal Chromium Green. Huh? Couldn’t find a single swatch! We can’t have that, can we, so the choice for my notd was pretty simple, because someone needs to put a pic of it out on the world wide web (hehe)! (perhaps there already are, but I just can’t find them)

No… wait… What? Didn’t I say chromium green? Yep, I did. And I promise you that it is green. My camera just happens to hate green, apparently. So, here’s a crazy color corrected pic that shows the real green color.

Even though my camera doesn’t like it, I do. Don’t love it, but like it, enough to want some more from the metal collection. Application was easy, you can get away with two coats, but I did three, plus top coat.


  • Love it…it’s beautiful on you:) My camera doesn’t want to photography green correctly either :(

    Åh, vad fin den blev på dig! Hurra för det! Kul om du gillar den lite också! Alla L.A. Girl-lack är superbra, tycker jag. Just denna har jag ju inte provat, den var så lik många andra av mina lack när jag tittade på flaskan, men jag har åtminstone två andra Metals som är ljuvliga. Sen älskar jag verkligen deras Rock Star-lack också!

    That is so awesome! *covet*

    Jag är faktiskt supersugen på Metal-serien, ska nog ta och klicka hem ett gäng när jag får lön. Tycker den är superfin på dig!

    I have this color and I feel it actually looks more like the first two pictures. I don’t know why LA colors named this polish the way they did because it isn’t as green as real chromium green oxide.

    Oh, great color!!! & I love your nails :D

    I just ordered the whole collection and was starting to doubt my decision because I couldn’t find any swatches….until now. Chromium looks awesome, and it’s nice to know you only need to do 2 coats.Thank you! BTW Cherry Culture has them on sale for $2.80 and every color is currently in stock.
