My green collection

I have always had a love of the color green.  Many of the polishes in my collection are greens.  So I thought why not swatch them all.  While doing this I got to thinking about how I choose my colors.  Most people I am noticing will buy a whole collection or style.  I usually just pick out whatever color suits my fancy or I think is pretty.  I love the limey greens more than the Kelly like greens.

I found this article about what your color of nail polish says about you.  So according to this article I am,  “vigor and the environment. Going “green” in your nail polish exudes earthiness and spunk.”  While I am a recent , almost 2 years ago, graduate from PSU with a B.S. in environmental studies and resource management, I don’t think it quite fits me.  I like the vigor and spunk part because I would like to think of myself that way, but the whole environmentally conscious part… ehhhhh.  While I do recycle and try to reduce my emissions, I still do many things that would not fall into that category.  Not to mention the fact that my husband flies across country every couple months for work.  So in theory most things point to me being very environmental but I hate being lumped into that box.  I just love the color green.

Well I had fun doing this and I hope you enjoy the pictures.
