Let the Green Begin

I've decided to do just green nails until my birthday (Jan.11) because green is my favorite color, and I have a lot of fun greens to try.

First up is Zoya Envy -- one of my Xmas gifts from Zoya's black friday sale. This is a beautiful color. The BF said it is black, but it is an obvious green. Black green creme is the best descriptor. I used Brutus as a backdrop because his orange/ginger fur brings out the green. There is even a few shimmers, very sparsely spread throughout the polish.

The first coat is streaky, weird and looks disappointing, but with the second coat beauty appears and perfection is achieved. It's a bit messy and harder to control than I would like, but it doesn't look too bad without cleanup.

This one is a go if you like darker colors and near-black shades. I'm sure in certain lights it shows more green, but I am happy with the way it is.

What are your favorite green shades? I'll let you know mine after the Bday.

Oh Kitty! Lol. Anyhow, I haven't had a chance to try any of my Zoya greens from that sale yet. But I really look forward to trying Envy.
