PROGRAMMING NOTE: Generally I try to get my NPLClub posts on Tuesdays… I’ve been feeling under the weather… so you’re gonna get a ton of posts today (I’ll be posting in between naps…)
Before we go into this weeks pic, let me lament about last week’s pick. Great color, so great I did my toes in the color and got so many complements on the color and my manicure as a whole, but holy cow… it leaves a mess behind when you remove it. My nails were so yellow that my doctor asked me if my liver was okay, he thought that maybe I was showing signs of jaundice. So just beware if you plan on using this polish, your nails are defiantly gonna need some TLC afterwards. (this was taken after they were buffed and soaked and you can still see a bit of yellowing)
THIS WEEK’S RANDOM NUMBER IS 164
Alternate Number 16 +4 =20
Color Me Monthly’s Sirens
In Greek mythology, the Sirens were dangerous yet beautiful creatures, portrayed as femme fatales who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island.

I was looking to try something new, lately I have been really unhappy with the polishes that Julep has come out with, so on a whim I signed up for Color Me Monthly . Color Me Monthly is a monthly nail polish subscription that sends out an affordable bottle of non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free polish in earth-friendly packaging. The subscription costs $7.00/month. Once again I got another great spring color called Sirens, and before I even knew the name my first thoughts were, “how this reminds me of the sea, and mermaids, fish scales and all that jazz”… hell I was close enough.
Sirens is a medium milky sea foam green with a shimmering microglitter. Very pretty and totally on trend for the season. As you can tell from the picture this is the first coat, so this particular polish requires at least two coats to get the achieved look. I was really happy to see that there was a good amount of micorglitter in the first coat. By the time I got to my second coat the polish was completely opaque.
You can clearly see the microglitters in the bottle and the polish looks exactly the same on the nail, there is no color or shade variation at all.. Even without the use of flash (and if you can look closely you can see the microglitters on my nail..
I loved this polish so much I matched my entire outfit to it… as you can see my bracelet and rope belt match my manicure! And I wasn’t the only one who liked this polish Tsuki REALLY liked it… I sat the polish on the bed and see assumed it was a toy and proceeded to carry it off to her bed… I was able to snap a picture before she bolted. Maybe this week I will do a little nail art with this polish, I think last month’s CMM pick would be a great complement to this
The application of the polish was smooth and I had no issues at all with the brush. Overall I was really impressed with this weeks pick and look forward to future CCM mailings. Now I know that I said the same thing about my previous CMM pick, but I have that I love the fact that this is a small operation which means there is extra care to make sure that each polish is perfect. And you know that I will find anything to pick apart on my post, but this one seems to have done it again, I am VERY impressed. So this polish get’s a 10 out of 10! And if you’re looking for a good quality polish in a “surprise” color every month I would highly suggest signing up for this service.
