Green With Envy

I'm really looking forward to a few of the upcoming fall trends. My fave?  I'm super delighted that wearing hunter green is suddenly stylish again (although, I wasn't aware that it hadn't been before)!

Yes, I'm sure there are oodles of clothing options out there in dazzling green hues, but since I'm still currently on a bit of a nail binge, I've been looking at some fab polishes.

Essie's fall collection is gorgeous.  All the colors are amazing, per usual, and their Stylenomics polish is a perfect hunter green.

It also got me thinking about a polish I already own from a few seasons ago, when matte polish started popping up all over the place.  After I went through my collection of about 200 nail polishes (that are conveniently directly under my desk in a lovely box), I found what I was looking for:  Revlon's Matte Suede Emerald City polish!

I wouldn't actually call it a matte polish, exactly. The word "suede" describes the finish much better.  On nails, it looks almost velvety in texture.  That said, you can certainly add a clear shiny top coat over it to change up the look.  Color-wise, this polish is exactly what I imagine when I think of hunter green.  And since it's from a few seasons ago, you can find it on sale! Woohoo!

Both nail polishes are divine--take your pick and get yourself some gorgeous, green nails.  If the color seems scary, use it on your toes. It's still sandal season for a little while!
