Scrangie Goes Green!

That's right... I'm giving up my nailpolish and my car and my AquaNet and I'm gonna SAVE THE PLANET!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LOL, you didn't think I was serious, did you? Me, the Queen of Chemicals???

Well, one thing I *am* going to do is post pictures of green polish. There are not enough green polishes in the world, but I've rounded up the greens from my collection and I'm going to post them here for all to admire.

I will most likely have to do this in three or four installments, so consider this Part One!

On to the greens!

I'll start off with some more common and well-loved greens:


China Glaze Gussied-Up Green


Color Club Limelight


Misa Green With Envy


Misa Toxic Seduction


NARS Zulu


Zoya Suvi


Zoya Tangy


Sinful San Fransisco


New York Summer Amaranth


Nubar Green Tea


NYX Las Vegas


Nubar Grass Green


OPI Green-Wich Village


China Glaze Outta Bounds


Rescue Beauty Lounge Recycle


Sinful Show Me The Way


Sally Hansen Glow


Rimmel Camouflage


Revlon Lush Lime


Sally Hansen Emerald City


Many, many more to come!

    Tink, really? At least they are pretty to look at :D

    Carla G, yay! I love green, blue and purple the most... And brown... and orange... Hmm... I see where this is going lol :D

    Emelie, I have another polish that looks like that too- Maybelline Go Go Green. Can you get Maybelline in Sweden? They're quite similar! :D

    VampyVarnish, you know, sadly, there aren't too many olive greens in existence, but I do have a handful that I'm working on swatching :D

  8. Greens are my all time favourites. Thank you for these swatches, although you make me want Sinful San Francisco and Sinful Show Me The Way even more than I thought possible!

    Can't get Sinful polishes down here though :(

  13. I do love green nal polish! And now I crave every one of these that I don't already own... You tempt me every day with new wonderful polishes. If only they where easy to get hold of, but no, it has to be difficult, hasn't it? Giving me a real challenge in life. Well, it might take me some time but one day they will be mine! :D

  17. Andie, oh no! Sorry if I've created a Zulu lemming!

    Mazoo, you're welcome! I have a big shoebox full of green polishes that I'm photographing for this project :D

    SiennaX, why thank you dear! :D

    Sanna, you look awesome in green :D And lol, SCREW ZULU!!!!

    Badbomben, oh, I know you're going to love it!! :D

    Lina-Elvira, hooray! <3 <3 <3

    Sminkan, I don't know why more of these companies don't sell all over the world! It seems like more customers = more money, but maybe I'm wrong!

    Mom, yay, love you too!

    Tiffany, you may want to sign the Polish Addict's petition to bring back Zulu!! I hope they do bring back Zulu, it really is unique!

    Rocketqueen, hehehe! :D I'm so happy to see a lot of you guys love green!! :D

  18. I'm currently wearing Sinful's San Francisco and I've gotten so many compliments on it!

    Also, I'm sure I'm not the first to ask, but HOW do you get your polish so absolutely perfect? I always struggle to get mine nicely rounded near the cuticle like yours!

  19. Sasha, yay, green rocks! As for the polish application, I guess it just takes practice! And light pressure on the brush with only a small amound of polish, it helps control where the polish ends up :)

  20. Thanks for the tip!

  22. I think i found a dupe for Nars Zulu, and it looks even closer if you add around 10 drops of black nail polish.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The brand is Tropical Manicure, and the polish is number 14. Without the black added it is a brighter green, but it a jelly, and if you add black it look so much like Zulu.
