The Fab Five: Green Nail Polish


From Left to Right
Essie's "The More the Merrier" $8.50
China Glaze's "Re-Fresh Mint" $7.50
Rimmel's "Rags to Riches" $1.99
China Glaze's "Starboard" $4.95
Essie's "Mojito Madness" $8.50

Green nail polishes weren't something I was initially interested in when I first started purchasing nail polishes. I gravitated more towards the blues for a while, but once I got my hands on my first green polish (Re-Fresh Mint), I couldn't be stopped. It seems as if greens have a lot more tonal variety so I have a lot of options in color choice when I'm picking out a green polish.

First up is Essie's "The More the Merrier" which came out in Essie's Naughty Nautical Summer 2013 Collection. It's your token lime green shade leaning a little more on the green side than the yellow side. Like the rest of the Naughty Nautical collection, there are tiny flecks of silver glitter in the polish that show up when the light hits your nails at different angles. It's quite the sight to see and I find myself staring at my nails like a dork whenever I'm wearing one from the collection. I'm not a big fan of glitter polishes usually so this is a great middle-of-the-road option. China Glaze's "Re-Fresh Mint" is up there as one of my favorite polishes of all time. It's a green-tinted mint shade that I love everything about. It checks all the boxes for the perfect mint polish. I'm still on the hunt for a blue-tinted mint shade, but this guy has made the search less important. You need this polish. Seriously.

Every time I try another one of Rimmel's Lasting Finish Pro polishes I'm shocked at how amazing they are for the price. Rimmel's "Rags to Riches" is simply amazing, and for the price it can't be beat. It's a forest green, metallic looking polish but doesn't have any glitter in it. It's incredibly easy to apply to the nail quickly (all thanks to the amazing brush). It lasts ages. China Glaze's "Starboard" is a recent addition to my green polish collection and is one serious green. It's deep, dark, and downright lovely. It's opaque after one coat and is a staple color. It's a fairly old China Glaze polish though so it's really only found on Amazon these days. Finally Essie's "Mojito Madness" has me a bit perplexed. I expected it to be a bit more minty than it actually is, but the shade is lovely regardless. It reminds me a lot of grass actually, so it's the perfect summer polish.

What are your favorite green nail polishes??

xoxo Kayla
