March is already here, and spring is coming! Boo and hiss to the return of high humidity and heat. But yay for pretty, springtime colours! I've never been one to care much (or, y'know, at all...) about whether my colours are seasonally appropriate, but the coming of spring has definitely put me in the mood for some of the soft, bright shades that come back "in" this time of year.
This is Orly Green Apple, and is that a perfect name or what? This crisp, fresh green makes me think of crunching into a tart, sweet apple. But while apples are more of an autumn thing, this bright, Granny Smith shade also reminds me of all the new little buds and shoots that come out in spring.
Here I'm wearing 2-3 coats of Orly Green Apple with a top coat of Nubar Diamont Seal & Shine. I've read good things about Green Apple's formula, so I'm thinking my bottle wasn't from a great batch. It built to opacity very easily without running. There was some cuticle pulling, but it was less than I expect from polishes with this much yellow. However, it had little to no interest in self-leveling, so getting an even application was a bit of a challenge. Rushing my top coat smoothed things out nicely, though, and any fussiness was well worth it for this gorgeous, creamy colour.
I really can't say enough about how in love I am with this green! It's so vibrant, too bold to be pastel but firmly light green without going lime or neon, and totally perfect for spring.
