It’s been rough for me over the past few weeks as I’ve been processing the passing of my grandmother. I traveled home for the first time in six years to attend the funeral, and as the day of departure approached, I couldn’t help but think of my grandmother and what she liked. I remember she had quite an attachment to the color olive green as her furniture was a similar shade, and she owned coats and clothes from the same part of the spectrum. I always considered it an uncommon color, especially for nail polish, so imagine my surprise when I obtained this gel polish from Aimeili.
Aimeili gel polish in 073 Kale.
This polish might have stolen my grandmother’s heart. The color is an army olive green although it is called Kale (number 073) in the Aimeili catalog, and I think it’s a pretty unique shade. Chances are high that you do not own a polish like this because I definitely did not, and it’s not like I’ve tried to avoid the shade! I guess the major brands don’t think that this color would sell well, but Aimeili took advantage of this to produce the shade.
It’s a jungle out there, and here are the nails to prove it!
I started by painting my nails with Aimeili gel polish in 073 Kale. This army green provides the perfect backdrop for jungle foliage. 3 thin coats were applied and cured for a minute each in a 36W UV/LED lamp.
