Nail Polish Stash: Part 4 - Greens (Swatch)

Running a bit late with this post but wow i did not realise i had so many green nail polishes!


Essie Da Bush: soft khaki sage with a gray undertone (full review here)
Zoya Gemma: murky green with yellow undertones and violet/blue microshimmer
Essie Sew Psyched: 'a cashmere-soft sage pewter' <-- Essie getting technical, honestly it's just the same as Da Bush but a few shades darker
Essie School of Hard Rocks: 'a midnight malachite', muted teal with grey undertones
Essie Going Incognito: 'deep emerald green', i would say it's more a hunter green with very strong teal undertones
Majolica Majorca GR615: a deep forest green with very subtle microshimmers
China Glaze Starboard: the perfect leaf/grass green! strong yellow undertones
OPI Jade is the New Black: Dusty medium green blue toned green.
OPI Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow Suede: Shimmery matte rich forest green
China Glaze Emerald Sparkle: Emerald green jelly

I love all my Essie greens, they're just so pretty! However, whenever i can't decide, i always seem to go for OPI Jade is the New Black. It's the perfect green for me. And now for the other half of the wheel, which are the mints:
Essie Absolutely Shore: 'a soft seafoam green', i've yet to try this color yet, it was one of the new colors i bought on my last order. It's definitely very pale though! When i get around to trying it, i'll do a proper review of the color.
Revlon Minted: I love this, it's really the perfect mint. Can't wait to wear it when it gets a bit warmer.
Essie Mint Candy Apple: 'creme de menthe mint', this color always reminds me of toothpaste. A cult favorite of Essie fans. I would say its more on the bluer side than mint though. This was one of the first Essies i ever bought and the formula wasn't the best (it actually turned me off Essie for a good while).
China Glaze For Audrey:  as close to 'tiffany' blue as you can get (not a dead dupe though, since T&Co holds the color trademark and all), hence the tribute name to Audrey Hepburn. 
OPI Thanks a Windmillion: dusty sea foam green, murkier than Mermaid's Tears.
OPI Mermaid's Tears: another dirty sea foam green but with more blue to it, a little brighter than Thanks a Windmillion
I love mints for spring and summer. It was probably not necessary to get both Thanks a Windmillion AND Mermaid's Tears but i love them both and couldn't resist. My favorite here is definitely Revlon Minted though, i have high hopes for Absolutely Shore!

What are your favorite green/mint nail polishes?

  3. I love Jade Is the New Black and Absolutely Shore! I have Revlon Minted but I always have issues with application ... it comes out thin and gloopy and then the colour loses its nice pastelness.

  7. I really like a lot of the colours that you featured but Essie and China Glaze are not available where I live. Essie Mint Candy Apple, China Glaze For Audrey and OPI Here Today Aragon Tomorrow are my favorites!

    1. i order most of my nail polishes online/buy them when i'm overseas simply because it is so expensive here! Not worth it at all.

  9. I'm not super into greens, so my faves are Essie Mint Candy Apple, and China Glaze For Audrey. Love these, and thanks for swatching, it gets easier to update my wishlists after I can see how the colors really look ^_^

  10. wow so many green colors! lovely! :)
    i always find it hard to wear green as it doesnt seem to go well with asian skin color, and it is not easy to match with my usual outfits. this is an awesome post to see so many greens together!
