Colour Me In: 50 Shades of Green (not really, just 5!)

'Colour Me In' is a series of posts in collaboration with Alice of ArsyParsy, Tezza of Myteeefine and Amanda of Thai-Tales!


Not really '50 shades of green'. Just 5 very different shades of green nail polishes I own!

These are the ONLY 5 and when I dug them out and had them in my hands, I realised that they are holy golly unique in their own tones!

Oh guys, sorry for the bad pics in this post... As I come home everyday, the sun is always almost setting so I had to rush these photos before it sets because swatches by artificial light sucks... so my nails are totally not prepped for these photos! :(

Anyways, here are the five nail polishes!

From left to right:

L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche in Blue Reef (thumb) has an awesome fast-drying formula with a supersized brush and lovely pigmentation. It's a deeper teal shade so much preferred for the colder seasons in my opinion! ^_^ Click here for more swatches!

B Collection in Bahamas reminds me alot of what a 'venom' colour would be! It's a bit thin in consistency but works fine. I was very surprised to find out that this had much of a matte-r finish. I would rock this somewhat-neon shade in any season!

Ulta3 in Mojito has a thinner consistency too, but I didn't really like the brush. It didn't flare out during the application so I did find it hard to work with but it's lovely and isn't overly poppy like B Collection's Bahamas.

Australis Cosmetics in Limited Edition 2 is now discontinued but is my favourite green nail polish! It's so lovely, unique and flattering in my opinion. Brightens my day :D The formula is however on the thicker side so it can be a bit gloopy. Meep.

Revlon in Beach is also discontinued (I believe!) and it has the thinnest consistency out of the bunch. I had to pack on many layers for an opaque finish. It is a lime green-yellow with a shimmery finish that will definitely be on my nails this Spring/Summer.

Sorry for this post being a tad rushed! I'm SO extremely tired that I can really sit here and complain ALL day! Meep!

Either way, I do hope that you enjoyed reading this post!

Do YOU have a favourite green nail polish that you would rock no matter what seasons?
