Baby-Poop-a-Palooza! (aka Green Comparison)

Anyone who knows me at all knows that one of my favorite colors is green. Especially "ugly" murky, swampy (yes baby-poop) greens. Best. Greens. Ever.

So I just did a really fast nail wheel swatch comparison with some of the "lovely" greens I have. I don't normally do a lot of swatch wheel posts for the blog, but I'm just not ready to take off my Dandy Nails Caught in the Crowd mani. Not even for Illamasqua Hectic, which is what spurred this comparison in the first place. My biggest NP WISH was finally fulfilled today!

So...


1.  Joe Fresh Khaki
2.  Chanel Khaki Vert
3.  China Glaze Westside Warrior
4.  Miss Sporty #475
5.  Illamasqua Hectic
6.  W.I.C. by Herome Aalborg
7.  Zoya Dree
8.  OPI Uh Oh Roll Down the Window
9.  RBL No More War
10. KleanColor Fashionista
11. OCC Swamp Thing

I love them all, except maybe #1 and #11 but I have to admit, #5 (Illamasqua Hectic) is the most gorgeous of the bunch for me. Which makes me insanely happy.


What do you think of the "ugly greens?" Are they for you?

  2. I really don't think that they're ugly greens. But I am quite the tree fanatic, so that may be why I don't find baby poo greens to be ugly. =)

    1. btw, for year and years I hated all kinds of green - except olive/khaki green. Maybe my red-head colors did it, as olive green is the most beautiful one for a red head to wear!

  9. The title of this post made me laugh out loud haha! I love the last picture, so stunning. I love colours like this :) Have to agree with you though, the Illamasqua shade is definitely the most gorgeous!

  14. That is a gorgeous green. I have two of the colors you are showing and I love them.

  15. I don't like greens, but I do like military greens! #3, 4, 6, 7, 8 all look near enough to me to only get one though. LOL I do like the shade of the Joe Fresh!

  16. I'm not sure if i like these types of greens, but then again i haven't tried them and you would surely need confidence to wear them!

  17. I am definitely not a fan.. but these would probably look great on me with my reddish hair and hazel eyes :) I do like 3, 4, and 5 the best.

  18. wow! You have so many "ugly" greens. I am not very fond of ugly greens and I think I don´t own any either, yet. But I think there will be some in the future, because i think they look great with some nail art.

  19. ADORE. Ugly olive green is my favorite color for clothes, EYESHADOW, and nail polish. You NEED Avon Olive Green, like someone already said, and I have to throw in that one of my favorite polishes is China Glaze Zombie Zest because it is the ickiest of yellow olive greens but with GLITTER. Unf.

    1. Unf - love it. I know EXACTLY what that sound conveys. LOL! But Avon isn't cruelty-free. I put on Illamasqua Hectic and it's quite possibly the Best. Green. Ever.

  20. With all due respect...yuck! Lol. Not for me. :)

  21. I have a few ugly greens myself! lol I originally bought CG Westside Warrior with the intention of putting gold crackle over it and it makes me think of a fairy forest! I love the combo. That;s the only time I've ever worn that color though. I'll probably start wearing them again when it gets closer to fall. I love pairing these greens with gold.

  22. This is actually one of my fave shades of polishe; I have a few of the ones you swatched. I would definitely add Zoya Shawn to the mix too. I also have red hair, pale skin and hazel eyes. Maybe that's why I love them so much!

  23. It's absolutely scary how many of these I own! Thanks for showing me this-and I'm being sarcastic here!

  24. I love 3, 4 and 5, but 5 is my top pick too!
