Depend - 260, swatch (green)

If you've missed yesterday's post I'll be doing a green week this week since Karin at Vacker&Underbar pointed out that October also is Depression Awareness Month, which has the color green. I wrote quite a long post about it yesterday which you can find here but the basic thing is to show awareness to depression, far too many feel depressed and some how it's also filled with guilt to feel sad/down. In today's society it's not generally accepted to feel sad, the norm is to jump around and be happy all the time. This is a part about it, to not point fingers and show acceptance to people.

Today's green polish are archive nails, I wore it this summer. The brand is Depend, a brand that I normally don't favor, the bottles are like other brand's mini bottles at their 5 ml size but the price is full if you know what I mean.. When there's so little in a bottle I think it's extra important that the formula is good, for my wide and long nails I otherwise would almost empty a bottle like this if it need too many coats.

260 actually fills the acquirements, it's a one coater and I really like this. The color is like a dusky military green and the finish is creme. Here I'm showing it with seche vite and it looks super shiny. I like this color and I know there's other brands who have this color as well, I have one from HM for example.

  4. Stunning green! I agree that its a military green shade, this would look awesome with camouflage print! I think its great your covering depression, I think its sad people sometimes forget mental illnesses need awareness just because they are not always visible. Also, I didn't forget your email :( I've just been kinda useless lately but I am going to reply soon <3

    1. Yes, you'ree right, it would look great in a camouflage print! I've been thinking of doing that but I've yet not done it. Will write it up in my to-do-list! :D
      And yes, that's why I wanted to do this week in green (even though I've felt a bit tired from all of the intense blogging from challenges, theme days and theme weeks), it's an important subject too.
      haha.. NO WORRIES! and no stress and pressure! :D When ever you have the time and mood.. <3

  6. Hi Gelic, what a gorgeous green!!! Beautiful on you!! How very considerate of you to devote Green to Depression Awareness!!! I agree with you about the quite taboo Status of Depression in our society. Having experienced the loss of the love of my life earlier this year I know a thing or two about being sad. All I could say to anyone experiencing such a trauma (and it doesn't always need to be Death of a beloved one): go and seek professional help!!! I did so straight away and it helped tons!!! I have come a long way since spring and am at peace with my faith and even Start to be curious again what the future will bring - have a lovely day <3

    1. Thank you! :D Thank you for your comment, I think you're correct too, seeking professional help is good. And probably helps a lot (I've never tried anything like it), but I think that's something that maybe should be more awareness about, how the external person can help you. I can imagine that some people feel embarrassed or maybe think they'll be rejected for the "tiny problems" they've got. Also about how much it will cost and other stuff. I think it's a big step talking to someone else and the people who does it are brave. But it shouldn't be like that, it should be more normalized, like going out to buy food or going to the dentist etc. I mean, it's good to be proud for ones own achievements but other people shouldn't point fingers and think you're weak not coping on your own! I know it's not like that everywhere but in some places and for some people it's like that.
      Hope you too have a lovely day!

  7. Jättesnyggt! Ja, det vill till att de täcker, Depends, men ofta är ju i alla formulan bra!

    1. Tack! Jag tror jag haft lite otur med Depend tidigare, men jag är också hårdare med dem. Tre lager, eller ens fyra lager blir jag egentligen inte så brydd på ett CG-lack men samma på ett Depend gör att jag tycker att de suger. Just bara fö att CG typ är hälften (eller kanske mindre) av priset av en Depend per/ml eller liknande.
