5 Mean Green Nail Polishes for St. Patrick’s Day

5 Mean Green Nail Polishes for St. Patrick’s Day

There are a lot of fantastic green shades to choose from–seriously!  I tried to pick a variety of colors/finishes within the green family, but feel free to peruse the green nail polish gallery for more :)

  1. Illamasqua Radium — bright, neon chartreuse green
  2. Butter London British Racing Green — deep, dark blue-based green
  3. NARS Night Porter — blackened green with multi-shaded green shimmer
  4. Zoya Holly — rich emerald green
  5. Essie Pretty Edgy — grassy green with a cream finish

What’s your favorite green nail polish?

Essie Summer 2010 Collection

Essie’s Summer Collection features six shades of creamy summer colors. They dry pretty fast, and the finish is only slightly glossy, so I used Nubar’s Diamont Top Coat (it was the closest one at the time – no real preference!). I liked Knockout Pout and Pretty Edgy the most–very strong, opaque color and a fuss-free application. Vermillionaire applied the smoothest, and pros could probably get away with just one coat if they really wanted!  I felt like these applied better than the average Essie, which may just be because three of the shades are much darker (and pastels have a tendency to be fussier).
