Paul & Joe Nail Enamel 021 Hallelujah and 007 Dapple

Here are two of my favorite green nail polishes by Paul & Joe: 021 Hallelujah (from the Ornamental holiday collection for 2011) and 007 Dapple (from the Parasol collection for spring 2011). Both are limited edition. Dapple is no longer available but Hallelujah is still on sale at Beautyhabit.com for US$9.80.

Dapple is a lovely pale mint with micro-fine green pearl shimmer. The shade reminds me of pandan cake, a yummy light chiffon cake flavoured with pandan leaves that is popular in Singapore.

Hallelujah is a translucent pale green with small gold and holographic blue glitter and large square holographic glitter that shift from yellow-gold to olive to blue/green.

Hallelujah is a true gem that catches the light beautifully without being too flashy. Just one to two coats of it helps to jazz up any nail lacquer.

Paul & Joe nail polishes are made in Japan by Albion, but unlike Anna Sui nailpolishes which bear a heavy rose scent, the P&J polishes do not have a strong scent after drying down. They contain moisturising agents like jojoba seed oil, chamomile flower and white lily extracts, and orange flower water. Finished with Dior Top Coat, there is only very minimal tipwear by the third day.

lovely; just the right set of nails for flowy florals without overdosing on the saccharine factor. stella
