In my neon leopard post, I mentioned a nail polish company called Soo Nails. They are super cheap (no more than $3) and are a decent quality. Today I wanted to show another polish from them. This one is called # , if I were to name it, I would call it Avocado Milkshake. It totally looks like the avocado milkshakes my husband makes. But enough about that, lets talk about the polish... # is a yellowed green creme color. The application on this was great! I only had to use two coats, it wasn't streaky at all. I don't have any dupes of this in my collection but it looks like Sinful Colors Adventure Island, at least according to swatches I found online. If you know of any other possible dupes, let me know.
Please excuse the lobster hands! I swear my hands do not look that red in real life... I really love this color, it's not your traditional "pretty" color. Next time, I'll see how it looks with glitter over it.
And since I mentioned avocado milkshakes, let me explain how delicious they are. Mr. R. hails from Brasil, where avocados are treated as fruit, and are mashed with sugar and cream, made into mousses, or milkshakes. To me, I always eaten them as a savory side like a slice with rice and beans (very Puerto Rican) or my Abuela's homemade guacamole (the only exception). I was never a HUGE fan of avocados (the irony of growing up with an avocado tree in my grandparents' backyard). Needless to say, it blew my mind when Mr R declared he was going to make an avocado milkshake... I have since enjoyed many a shake since then.
And now let me pass on my hubby's Avocado Milkshake recipe:
1/2 of a ripe avocado (he says the smooth-skinned ones are creamier, but use whatever you have available)
2 cups of milk ( if you want a thinner consistency, use more milk)
5 tablespoons of sugar (or sweeten to taste)
Then blend all of the ingredients together. That's the basic recipe. However you can tweak it and make it your own. I sometimes like adding a banana and vanilla protein powder, other times I add a little bit of Nesquik. One thing, I recommend making a large batch and freezing what you don't use. Otherwise the avocado oxidizes and doesn't look pretty.
