Orly Green Apple

This polish was a gift from the ever-generous Rach of stuff i (s)watched and boy, did she ever nail--no pun intended--this one! Few polishes make me happier than a perfect green! Orly Green Apple originally came out in the Hot Stuff Collection and as the name implies, it's the color of a green Granny Smith apple.





Green Apple looks so summery and fresh. If you haven't guessed by now, I really love it! The formula is on the streaky side but nothing unmanagable. I used three coats here. I like how this color is bright but also has an almost pastel-like softness to it. It reminds me of a cross between OPI Gargantuan Green Grape and Essie Navigate Her. Ironically, I dislike green apples (too sour for me) but I adore Orly Green Apple. :)

  5. @Sarah: Thank you! I prefer Gala apples, myself. :)

    @Nory: It's certainly an eye-catcher! Bright but somehow light at the same time.

    @Anne: Thanks! I wish the weather outside matched the look of this polish!

    @greeneyespinknails: Hahaha thank you!

  6. This color is great! Very bright and summery. It kind of reminds me of Sally Hansen Green With Envy.

  7. I have this color too. I use it quite a bit. It stained the turd out of my nails when I wore it as a full mani.

  8. @Sheba: Thank you!

    @Melissa: I definitely see the resemblance to the Sally Hansen, I'd say they look pretty close! Awesome, thank you! I will check it out! :)

    @TopCoatIt: It kind of reminds me of the background color on your user icon, come to think of it! I was worried it would stain but was too lazy to use a basecoat haha. I managed to get away with it this time though.

    @Polish and Charms: I agree, it just makes me feel happier when I wear this haha.

  10. Oh wowwwww. This looks fabulous on you! :) SO glad you like it! It wasn't my perfect apple green, but I somehow ended up with a dupe anyway. *facepalm* I love Orlys, though. Sigh.

  12. @MariJo: Thank you! :)

    @Rach: Thank you so much for sending it to me, I absolutely love it to pieces! Funny which polishes we end up having dupes for haha. I think it's because if you have a polish you really love, you remember it and don't wind up with dupes. It's the obscure ones in your collection that sneak up on you!

    @A Girl and Her Polish: Thank you! I will check it out!
