    Oh my that is a lot of green!! You must have tried every green polish there is!

  • March 16, 2011

    Great selection :) BB Couture has so many great greens, but I don’t have any. Now have to figure out what to wear tomorrow lol

  • March 16, 2011

    Happy Saint Patrick’s day! (in advance..) Im wearing Revlon Emerald City with one finger in Revlon Powder Puff and one finger in Revlon Tangerine! (To mimick the Irish flag in green , white and orange)
    You have so many gorgeous greens!!!

  • March 16, 2011

    So many green polishes! I really like Orly Ancient Jade. When it comes to greens, I tend to like cream polishes better. That and metallic blue-greens.

  • March 16, 2011

    You are my go-to blog for greens. I’d only say that Illamasqua Rampage is a better green than Nars Zulu… *runs for cover*

  • March 16, 2011

    Oh, I love heavy posts like these! So many gorgeous greens we have out there. That makes me so happy. BB Couture is so good at greens and your pictures makes me wanna buy them all. :)

    This so great! Too many awesome greens to chose from. I’m gonna do mine now that you’ve inspired me! Thanks so much Kelly!

  • March 16, 2011

    Wow! You have such a great collection of greens!!! I loved seeing all your pictures! :)

  • March 16, 2011

    I’m wearing Nubar Reclaim – though I may have to take it off before tomorrow (broke a nail). It’s such a fun color, I’ve gotten so many compliments on it already. And I can’t help but stare at my nails all day long. :p

  • March 16, 2011

    Some of these are already in my collection
    All the others definately are on the wishlist!
    I really love my greens! Thank you for the green-porn 😉

    Lovely! I’m going to wear China Glaze Four Leaf Clover :)

  • March 16, 2011

    Great post! Now I’ll have to decide which green polish to wear….maybe Zoya Gemma.

  • March 16, 2011

    This post makes me happy! I love green nail polish!! :)

  • March 16, 2011

    lol, i was just about to do my st. patty’s day mani when i saw this post!

    i’m doing sinful colors “happy ending” with “call you later” on top!!

  • March 16, 2011

    So many pretty greens! :-) My favorites BB’s : Laguna Lagoon, Redwood Forest and Bonnie Nubar: Reclaim Orly: Mint Mojito and Ancient Jade

    OMG! Loveeeeeeeeee! Thanks for posting this :)

  • March 16, 2011

    I had an internal “YAYYYY!” when I saw these. Love me some green polish, and you’ve included many of my favourites!

    Even though I do love reading your commentary, posts like this are nice to drool over! 😀

  • March 16, 2011

    Nubar Reclaim is sooooo pretty!!! If I had that I would definitely wear it tomorrow! And China Glaze Kiwi Cool Ada WOW that’s bright!!!

  • March 16, 2011

    Wow that’s a lot of green! Think I’ll be sporting Starboard tomorrow.

  • March 16, 2011

    Aww, no Zoya Gemma? That’s probably one of my favorite greens!

    But I do have a comparison questions for you: Are Hard Candy Envy and RGB Sea ‘dupes’ ? I absolutely LOVE RGB Sea, but if Envy is a full on dupe, I can pass on Sea.

    • March 16, 2011

      Hi Sarah,

      I had about 100 more green pics I could have added actually but just couldn’t, haha! They are extremely close but would have to check again in person to see if they are dupes. I’ll keep you posted!

      • March 16, 2011

        Thanks! I would really appreciate it! :)

    • March 16, 2011

      I’m wearing Gemma for St. Patrick’s Day! I am surprised by how much I love it.

  • March 16, 2011

    Oh no – I thought I knew what I would be wearing tomorrow but you’ve just confused me totally :)! I’d forgotten just how many great greens I have viewing your swatches – decisions, decisions – tee hee!

  • March 16, 2011

    You’ve got some green collection there

    Wow! That’s some green collection that you have there!

  • March 16, 2011

    *swoon* Yes, I am one of those polish lovers that just can’t get enough green! Thanks for the inspiration. The only problem is now there aren’t enough days left in March for me to pack in all the greens I have in my collection 😀

  • March 16, 2011

    What a seriously awesome post!! So which one are you wearing tomorrow?

    What a great selection of greens! I think I am in love with Myrza’s Meadow, Universal Joint, Ceremony, and Stromboli!

  • March 16, 2011

    I went with OPI Jade is the New Black myself!

  • March 16, 2011

    I think I’m gonna wear Office by American Apparel tomorrow just because I’ll be at work and the name made me giggle inside. Otherwise my fav green is Laguna Lagoon. We’ll see what we go for.

    So many greens, so few… St Patrick’s Days, lol. Eh, I wear green anyway. I have Zoya ‘Ivanka’ on my toes right now. Don’t know what I’ll do for the tips yet, but at least I got to look at all the pretty greens!

  • March 16, 2011

    Fun, no St Pats celebrations over here, but I did happen to wear green. I just spruced up my Cult Nails Living Water polish with some sparkly Gosh Green Hawaii (and Essence Copper Rulez & Opi ?). Pretty pretty sparkles! Wear down on the polish is always an invitation for experimentation for me (I was inspired by a gorgeous picture of an old sunken ship), and this one worked out quite nice!

    Wow, thanks for this post! I love posts like this, especially for uncommon nail polish colors like green… I’d love to see a purple post someday. 😀

  • March 16, 2011

    All gorgeous greens. You didn’t include my favorite BB Couture polish, Poison Ivy!

  • March 16, 2011

    Where’s your namesake polish? Isn’t that one green? I have it with my other greens. It’s gorgeous, btw.

    • March 17, 2011

      Hi Tina,

      I have Kelly’s Green on the list :)

  • March 16, 2011

    Wow, a lot of pretty ones I don’t have!!! I have to get some of those BB Couture greens!

    Where do you purchase BB Couture polishes? I live in California and have never seen them in stores. The polishes all look so gorgeous that I must have some lol

    • March 17, 2011

      Hi Silvia,

      On their website or

    kelly-How does BB Couture Posse compare to BB Couture Dark Knight?

    • March 17, 2011

      Hi Rachell,

      Dark Knight is a deep brown/olive green/black color. It’s not really a classic “green” really. Posse is a dark mossy green. They are definitely extremely different. Most people might not even classify Dark Knight as a green actually.

  • March 16, 2011

    Lovely list…but Wagon Trail is missing 😉

    MacArthur Park makes my heart sing.

      Hi Stephanie,

      Can you believe I do not have a swatch photo of that??? I transferred my blog long ago and it got lost. Plus it would have been old and awful anyway, but yep that is one of my all-time fav greens ever. :)

  • March 16, 2011

    WOAH! I knew there was gonna be a lot of greens, but i totally didn’t expect THAT many!
    soo awesome!

  • March 17, 2011

    Wow, so many beautiful greens! Thanks for compiling these, it reminded me of a lot of greens I own that I tend to overlook :)

    Damnit, now I want to buy a whole bunch of polishes. THANKS A LOT, Kelly ;).

    I’m wearing ChG Mistletoe Kisses today and I stamped white Shamrocks on my thumbs. It’s nice to be able to wear MK when it’s not Christmas.

  • March 17, 2011

    I just died and went to green polish spam heaven! Lemmings, lemmings, more new lemmings *sigh* Happy St Pat’s Kelly!! :)

  • March 17, 2011

    Misa Like it like that, what an awsome color! I will have to get that one. I don’t think I have a green in my polish wardrobe in that color.

  • March 17, 2011

    Its safe to say I love every polish on this post. I’m addicted to green nail polish!
