ZULU

i got my hands on my very own bottle of ZULU today!!! after the postman tried to deliver it on tuesday (they said no one was home - this is NOT TRUE. i have beef with the us-figgin-postalservice) i finally went to the post office to sign for the little package (really? for nail polish...grr) and immediately came home and got to work.


i LOVE this color -- it is the perfect gummy green sort of swampy looking without being overtly GREEN. it has no shimmer (majorrrrr plus) and looks black unless you look real close. it's perfection. thank god i snagged this guy on ebay (although i paid retail x2...) because these bottles are flying off the shelves like hotcakes! the woman i spoke with at the santa monica sephora actually LAUGHED when i asked if they had any left and the nars website is a dead end too. 


i am not going to do swatches bc honestly i haven't perfected painting perfectly and i have to get ready for a chem lab...but here is a little treat!!
