I'd been looking for a good rich non-blackened green creme for nail art, so was glad to see this. Then I was glad that this applied so smoothly and wore so well.
Then I was un-glad to find out that Sally Hansen had discontinued this color. So I went on a mad spree through several local stores, keeping my eyes open for another bottle (or three) of Emerald City. I eventually found two backups: one for me, one as a gift.
I got full coverage in two coats. The finish was a little shimmery, and showed a few brushstrokes. (Or maybe it's just time to buff my nails again. Who knows…) As with most other Xtreme Wear polishes I've used, I was able to wear this for three days with no top coat, and no chipping or tip wear.
Sally Hansen's site says that folks who miss this color should look at its “replacement”, Going Green. That color is also a green creme, but it's a little brighter. Kin but not kind. If you happen to see Emerald City at your local Rite-Aid, CVS, Walgreen's, or other drugstore chain…buy a bottle before they're all gone.
