WHOA NAILY! Nicole by OPI Green Up Your Act (Fall 2011 Something About Color Collection)

Hey peachies! Green Up Your Act! is a muted green crème with a subtle blue-greenish look to it...almost viridian green but sort of camouflage-y. I hope that is a good description :-) Nicole by OPI is a 3-free brand (free of toluene, DBP and formaldehyde.) The formula and application is heaven which is kind of a surprise. In the past, Nicole by OPI had these "perfect stroke" brushes that were not perfect AT ALL. The brushes were awkwardly round, awfully short and super stiff (again far from perfect.) I guess they heard their consumers’ cry about how terrible those brushes were and changed them back. I applied three coats but you could easily get away with applying two coats. When I finished painting my nails with this awesome color, I thought it was superbly chic! Just chic beyond words and perfect for the fall. I just might put this in heavy rotation and that is saying a lot! It is unique. Green Up Your Act falls somewhere in betweenRescu e Beauty Lounge Orbit Non-Sufficient and Rescue Beauty Lounge Diddy Mow. I have a comparison picture below. Definitely, not as green as Orbit Non-Sufficient but way greener than Diddy Mow.  No dupes come to mind for this gorgeous color.  Green Up Your Act definitely deserves the WHOA NAILY! title. So you know what that means?! Go out and get it now! It retails exclusively at Target for about $7-8.
