Master Chief Green

Ok, so I was all ready to put up this big long post with all the new jelly polishes I've gotten, but then this post ended up being so much more AWESOME.

Brett and I both LOVE video games - the Halo series is one of our favorites. Needless to say we BOTH have a huge crush on Master Chief, so I've been searching for the perfect Master Chief Green, and I think I've finally found it... maybe.

Sinful Colors - Show Me the Way

In this picture, it is a little bit more yellow green bright than in real life, where it looks slightly more dusty and olive. Just a tid bit more subdued, but not much. I asked Brett what he thought, and he said it was too sparkly. This is true. At this point it was too "gorgeous" to be MC... So I figured maybe a satin topcoat like Orly's Nails for Males would do the trick:

It's still pretty sparkly, and I may not have waited long enough for the topcoat to dry (I'm so impatient, haha), but it was still not exactly what I was going for. So I tried China Glaze Matte Magic:

Whoa. Yes, THAT is what I was looking for. It brings out more of the true color of the polish instead of the color of the shimmer. Of course, I had to test the theory and put it up next to a REAL Master Chief to see if it was indeed a match... (haha, I wish! But alas, it's just the collector's edition helmet)

I love that you can see me taking pictures in the reflection, heehee :o)

Although it's still a tiny bit brighter, I think it's pretty darn close!!

I might end up buying another one (since it's only $1.99 at most Targets, Walgreens, and CVS's) to try to Franken it a little bit grey-er. I also think it would be really cool to have one accent nail done in an orange chrome or even better, orange MINX!

What do you think? Do I have a match? Is this the perfect Master Chief Green?


  1. Ooo, I like it even better matte. Looks like a really good match to my eye.

  2. I'm wearing this today! I need to try the matte, it's much less "in your face". I'm a graphic designer, so I can get away with color on my nails at work, but this one is pushing it today!
