NYX Lime Nail Lacquer

NYX Lime Salon Formula Nail Polish ($4.00 for 0.52 fl. oz.) is a bright lime green with chartreuse shimmer. It’s vibrant and the right mix of shimmer and metallic, because you get some of the brush strokes of a metallic finished polish but they’re easy to control to get into straight line. China Glaze Cha Cha Cha is much greener, while Butter London Dosh is a darker green. China Glaze Electric Pineapple is similar in color but has a cream finish. Illamasqua Radium is a touch greener and while it also has shimmer, it’s much subtler and green rather than chartreuse.

Unfortunately, this shade was not opaque after two coats, which was a bummer! It’s such a pretty shade (and will be perfect for summer), but it needs some help in the pigmentation department. The consistency isn’t too thick or thin, but I didn’t love the way three coats felt–they did feel a bit heavy. When I initially tested out NYX’s new formula, this was one of the shades I specifically tested for wear, and after a week, I had no chipping, just minor tip wear (which is par for the course).

This is a great color for spring. I might pick this one up, I really don’t have any greens of this hue. I’ve used NYX nail polish before and I have no complaints about the formula.

gahhhh!! This is the nail polish color of my childhood!! I believe the first nail polish i ever bought was this color and by this brand called heaven nail polish. I bought it for 1 dollar, loved and wore it till it was completely gone:( When i tried to find the same bottle, it seemed to have vanished. I continued my life trying to buy nail polishes that seemed the same but were not. Hopefully nail polish companies come to their senses and make a better version of this color ASAP!!

NYX is far and away my favorite makeup brand, but nail polish really isn’t their strong suit. I was hoping that might change with this new line, but I guess not!

Il reminds me of Revlon’s “Beach”, that came out last summer.
Maybe the Revlon one was more green, but I think the idea is the same.
OPI had a very similar shade, I think it was the first by Serena Williams, the one the looked like a tennis ball.
It’s practically the same color.
