OPI Front Runner!
This green is everything!! The green polish is more on the yellow/green spectrum, but it has just enough blue in it as well, making it the perfect shade in my opinion. And, the formula is one coat of awesomeness. Unfortunately this polish is hard to find and I am regretting sticking it in my favorites just because of that reason :/. It was released as a limited edition polish, exclusive to Ulta from the OPI Fall/ Winter collection this year. . It's so pretty, and it's perfect for fall or the holidays. I am so glad I picked it up, but I don't think it is SO unique that you guys couldn't find something similar.
So, I wanted to get some comparisons for you. Here are the greens in my collection that are most similar. Now, keep in mind that greens tend to discolor in the polish bottle and what you see isn't necessarily what you get:). You will see what I am talking about when I get them on the nail (below), but here are the colors from left to right: Essie Stylenomics, China Glaze Near Dark, OPI Front Runner, ZOYA Hunter and Essie Off Tropic.
Now, also keep in mind that under my bright lights you will see slight differences made very clear. In natural light these differences aren't as noticeable. I don't have any exact dupes in my collection but, Stylenomics comes the closest. The only difference is Stylenomics is slightly more blue-toned and Front Runner is more yellow-toned. I wore these all for one day and they both looked pretty identical on the nail in a natural setting. (See below)
I also think OPI Christmas Gone Plaid from the Gwen Stefani collection will be pretty close- I don't have that one. I also saw +Young Wild and Polished post a picture of Nails Inc Bruton Mews a few days ago and it looked like a dupe, so check both those out! Seriously...check them out, you all need a dark green in your collection!
Okay, here is the nail design I came up with featuring the lovely Front Runner. I saw this "frosted berry" design created by @mirdinara on Instagram and knew I wanted to use it for a holiday design. It's just beautiful! She is so talented! I wish I could have done it more justice for her, (haha) but I did the best I could. I wish I could paint like her! Check her out.
