Happy First Day of Spring!
And what better to celebrate than spring green nails? This is Navigate Her, from Essie’s spring collection of the same name. I love it, even though it makes my hands look super red. It’s not too light or too dark, and it has just the right amount of yellow in it, making it different from the mint greens that have been super popular the last few years.
Shown is three coats with no topcoat.
Since I had a few other somewhat similar greens, I thought I’d see how they compare. From left to right: butter LONDON Bossy Boots (from this year’s spring/summer collection), Navigate Her, and Essie Da Bush (from last year’s resort collection). All are three coats.
As you can see, both are lighter than Navigate Her, but Bossy Boots is pretty much the same tone, while Da Bush (which is also a dupe for OPI’s Stranger Tides in case you were wondering) has much more grey in it. I like all of them, especially since they’re different enough that I can justify owning them all.
