In the green

I painted my nails yesterday (duh) and my sweet roommate was kind enough to let me borrow a polish I had been contemplating buying for a while now...
[Refreshmint by China Glaze] 

I have been dying for the perfect shade of sea foam green, and I had high hopes for this hue. 

It shows up a little more blue than green, and it kind of makes me feel like a total hipster. Maybe the problem is my skin tone, or maybe I'm just a pink/coral/red/peach girl through and through. 

Right after I finished polishing, I read this article from Refinery29 which claims "Green is the new neutral." That may be true, but I think I'll be sticking with every shade of peach this season.

So tell me, what are your thoughts on wacky nail polish colors? I tend to gravitate toward them (in the bottles) but can never quite pull them off. 


  1. I am all about crazy nail colors.
    I have a bazillion and I love to mix and match! last week I had 5 different colors on, a different one one each finger. today all of my nails are a light turquoise-ish color except my ring fingers which are a coral/salmony color

  2. caitlin,
    i JUST bought a color very similar to this yesterday from target. its sally hansen mint sorbet. i love love love it!

  3. i loveee the wacky colours but hate that they are so noticeable when chipped! this colour looks great xx
