wild About Beauty Tanwen*, Nails Inc Brunton Mews*, & Other Stories Moire Green

For this week's nail focus edit, I decided to look into seasonal greens. Green on the nails isn't a colour I wear that often. I find it doesn't always compliment my skin tone, but there are few that have caught my eye recently within my polish collection. Therefore, I've pulled three different green nail polishes which fall into three different tones: light, mid and dark. I've chosen these three intensities because I feel neons and some pastels just aren't quite right for the winter months. For example, pastel shades like Essie Mint Candy Apple are just a bit to peppy and light for winter when you want something a little more subdued and neutral rather than in your face and bright.

First up is Wild About Beauty Tanwen, a light khaki green. It has a really nice autumnal sage tone to it which compliments browns, navy's and blacks. Next is Nails Inc Brunton Mews which is the deep emerald green of the bunch. It's really dark deep and super glossy. This shade has a lovely luxe edge to it and is a nice twist on a dark nail. Then finally we have my wildcard pick which is & Other Stories Moire Green. Moire Green might me an odd choice, But as I've said before I'm not in the camp that all winter nail colours have to be deep or dark. The predominately white base gives the nails a really cool wintery look without being in your face. It's really understated and one of my favourite nail polishes.
Do you have a pick of seasonal green nail polish?

  3. I actually really like the dark green! I've never even thought about wearing green nail polish but the first time I did it was at a cosplay and I was Poison Ivy haha :D Ok random story, but ever since then I think I'm obsessed with dark green nail polish and this colour is lovely!

  19. The Nails Inc. one is absolutely gorgeous. I've seen several other bottles of attempted emerald green at the drugstore, but this one really nails it. I guess sometimes you really do get what you pay for! Can't wait to pick it up from Sephora :)
