In keeping with the Emerald Green theme from this thread I thought I would post some pictures of our prettiest emerald greens. Have a favorite emerald green? Swatch it and come post it in this thread.

Honestly, when I saw that Pantone had decided on that green I thought 'b-o-r-i-n-g'. But I change my mind seeing those yummy green nails!!! :P:p:p

I know what you mean. I didn't used to like greens but then I saw some swatches on a blog long ago and my eyes about popped out. They were so pretty. Some of these are really festive for the current holiday season as well.

I just got Green Garland, and of course Emerald Sparkle is a favorite. However, I also love Sinful Colors' San Francisco, Orly's Lucky Duck, ChG's Watermelon Rind and Emerald Fitzgerald, and Color Club's Rule Breaker. Misa's Toxic Seduction is pretty nice to although it leans a bit olive. I think I'm going to try something snow-y tonight with Rule Breaker and ChG's Glistening Snow.

I have China Glaze's Watermelon Rind and even to this day it is one of my favorite polishes.

I don't think this green is out from Cult Nails. I'll hit Maria up tomorrow and ask.

I have all 6 polishes in that collection. Only complete collection I own. I loved them all, even the orange one that looks crap on me. They're just so sparkly and juicy.

Friday, I picked up the Sephora + Pantone Emerald mini polish set:  A glitter, a shimmer, and a cream with holographic glitter.  I thought the cream would be a dupe of the Color Club Wild Cactus I received from Birchbox since I didn't have anything in this exact Pantone shade of green, so I didn't buy it Friday when I bought pretty much the rest of the Pantone collection (eyeliner, shadow, chunky pencil, and much, much more!), but then when I got home, I discovered they're wildly different, so I *had* to go back and get the cream yesterday!  I have, uh, more than a few green polishes (probably around three or four dozen, if not more), but not a single one was remotely close to Pantone Emerald.  I *had* to buy the new Sephora stuff!  I had actually been planning on buying every item in the Emerald collection because I love green, so this spree actually wasn't a surprise.  What *was* a surprise was the fact that I could actually *do* it.  I normally have to pace my buying when getting everything from a collection, but I had the money this week, so *boom*.  

 

(I tend to wear exclusively green polish in March to celebrate the return of plants growing, which is why I have so many different bottles:  Every year, there are new shades that I *have* to buy to expand my options.  This is going to be a particularly bad year for reigning in polish acquisition because it seems like green in general -- lime, mint, emerald, forest, absinthe, you name it -- is the big nail polish color family like blue was last year, and there are green polishes *everywhere* demanding that I buy them.)
