GREEN WITH NAIL ENVY

My manicure using Jessica's Viva La Lime Light polish

(article published for TStylesU)
For this week’s manicure I’ve gone for a shade you just can’t miss - a gorgeous pistachio green hue by Jessica, called Viva La Lime Light. Although it’s from one of their older collections, it’s a very current colour, and is perfect as a little burst of vibrant colour as the summer draws to an end. 




Also popular this past summer season with all the big polish brands, refreshing minty and aqua shades of green have proved a daring yet on-trend colour choice. For example, Yves Saint Laurent brought out their Manicure Couture Duos earlier in the year, including a gorgeous colour combination of mint green and chocolate brown.

Or for those whose budget is a little more DIY than designer, Butter London have also just released their Autumn/Winter 2012 polishes collection, which includes new ‘Trustafarian’ nail lacquer, a sophisticated sage green with a golden holographic finish. The cult phenomenon brand also boasts an opaque pistachio green coloured polish, ‘Bossy Boots’.

Another simply stunning shade is Sally Hansen’s ‘Sea’ Smooth and Perfect Colour and Care pale mint green polish, which has a luxurious shimmering finish that really catches the sunlight and makes your manicure sparkle.

Update your polish collection with these minty marvels, and be the queen of green.
