china glaze wagon trail

does anyone remember that awful game we used to play in grade school "the oregon trail"? if you went to grade school in the 90's, then you probably know what i'm talking about. that's the first thing that came to my mind when i heard about this cult phenomenon of a nail polish color. china glaze's wagon trail is a dark olive green shade from the rodeo diva collection.

at first, i was all, wha what whaat? how can everyone love a dark olive green color so much? and i have to be honest, the pictures i saw were not doing it any favors. but then i stumbled across scrangie and e-polish's sites and they of course loved it too. and their pictures finally did the polish the justice it so rightfully deserves. in fact, the entire rodeo diva collection is a huge win in my book. there is not one color in there that i wouldn't wear twice, three times over again.
wagon trail is gorgeous, deep, dark, and hued to perfection. there is just the right amount of green/gold shimmer in it to keep one's eyes flickering down to it in the sun and dark enough to qualify it as dark and punky/goth/vampy which i love. how did i ever doubt you, dear? the above is 2 coats, no topcoat, flash.
