Green polish - whether a deep and dark one, a pastel or a pearlescent version - can add an interesting touch to your outfit. Just make sure you choose the right one that matches your skin tone and stay away from the shades that make your hands look dull.
These are the latest limited-edition shades.
(1) CHANEL LE VERNIS NAIL COLOUR IN 645 PARADISIO
$38, from Chanel counters
The first coat of this pearlescent silver-green polish is sheer and streaky. A second coat gives nails the finish of gleaming pearls.
(2) BUTTER LONDON 3-FREE NAIL LACQUER IN SLOANE RANGER
$24, from Sephora stores
With just a single layer, this sophisticated dark grey-green polish goes on opaque. It is non-streaky and has a semi-matte texture. Bonus: the polish is free of the carcinogens commonly found in nail polish: formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate.
(3) RMK NAIL COLOR EX IN 29
$25, from RMK counters
A single layer of this pretty pastel mint shade looks streaky on the nail; a second coat is necessary to even out the opaque and glossy colour.
