Emerald Envy: Green Nail Polish Collection

Recently, I spend some time reorganizing my nail polishes and trowing away the ones which were dried out or just simply finished. On a side note, am I the only one who finds it difficult to throw them away and as a result continue to hoard unusable polish?

To my surprise, shades of green are dominant in my collection. I do love all shades of green – my most recent love affair is emerald green – but I hadn’t quite realized they had outnumbered the more classic reds and pinks. So, here is a tribute to green ranging from the lightest pastel shade to deep dark green.

Loreal Color Riche Pistacio Drage  (852) – a lovely light pastel polish with a hint of green. Covers perfectly in two to three layers despite the light color.

Rimmel 60 Seconds Round and Round the Garden (813) – Sweet mint green, looks lovely in spring and summer.

Max Factor Glossfinity Aqua Marine (175) – green-grey-blue-ish tone that adapts to the color of your outfit. Versatile and though.

Essie Stylenomics – the ultimate deep dark green just a shade away from black. Great in winter, but also works great on your toenails in summer.

Catrice Emerald Bay (48) – the perfect emeral green. The quality of this polish isn’t great, but I will wear it untill I find a better quality dupe.

Maybelline Drops of Jade (55) – A fun gel-like topcoat with white and black dots. Works best over a white or black basecoat.

Rimmel Salon Pro Sea Green (371) – Super deep blue-green polish. An awesome accent color with any outfit.


Laatst heb ik een keer goed de tijd genomen om mijn nagellakjes uit te zoeken: even opnieuw organiseren en de opgedroogde en opgemaakte lakjes wegdoen. Ben ik trouwens de enige die moeite heeft met het weggooien van nagellak en dus een hele berg onbruikbare lak in de la had liggen?

Tot mijn verrassing was groen de dominante kleur in mijn collectie. Ik ben dol op alle tinten groen – mijn laatste liefde is smaragd groen – maar ik had me niet gerealiseerd dat ze meer aanwezig waren dan klassiek rood of roze. Daarom heb ik hier mijn favoriete groene lakjes op een rijtje gezet, van licht pastel tot diep donkergroen.

Loreal Color Riche Pistacio Drage  (852) – een mooie lichte pastel-lak met een hint van groen. Dekt in twee tot drie lagen perfect, ondanks de lichte kleur.

Rimmel 60 Seconds Round and Round the Garden (813) – lief mint groen, helemaal geweldig voor het voorjaar en de zomer.

Max Factor Glossfinity Aqua Marine (175) – groen-grijs-blauwig, deze lak past zich aan naar de kleur van je outfit. Heel veelzijdig en stoer.

Essie Stylenomics – de ultieme donkergroene net-geen-zwarte lak. Gaaf in de winter, maar ook verrassend in de zomer op je tenen.

Catrice Emerald Bay (48) – de perecte smaragd kleur. De kwaliteit van de lak is niet geweldig, maar ik heb nog geen dupe gevonden voor deze geweldige kleur.

Maybelline Drops of Jade (55) – een hele leuke groene gelachtige topcoat met witte en zwarte spikkels. Werkt het best over witte of zwarte basis.

Rimmel Salon Pro Sea Green (371) – supermooie diepe blauw-groene lak. Een super accent bij elke outfit.

    Such lovely colours! I especially like the two Rimmel shades. Another one you might like is Charlie by Revlon in 607-Rare find.
    I do also hoard polishes, by the way. 😀 They just look so pretty on a display somewhere which makes it incredibly difficult to part with them even if they are unusable.
    I also sometimes keep unusable ones if I mean to repurchase that colour as a reminder but I often forget to get another bottle.

      Oh, thanks for the tip, will have to look around for that Revlon one.
      Oh I keep bottles around forever because I mean to repurchase them 😉 Glad you also have that little habit 🙂
      How are you doing? Hope you are having a great weekend 😀 xx

        Hahaha maybe that should just be the go-to excuse for keeping them. 😀
        I am doing well, thank you! I am being kept super busy but I am having fun, nevertheless. 🙂 How are you?
        I hope you are having a lovely weekend too! xxx

          Good! I realised you were probably super busy, but just hoped you weren’t stressing too much.
          I’ve been great. Just trying to find a certain navy prom dress (and then an event to wear it to) 😉

            Hahaha 😀 Well, where there isn’t an event, there is always an excuse to make an event. 😉 xx
