Lovely polish. It's definitely more of an aqua than a straight green (there is blue in it) and it reminds me of a deep, tropical ocean water. Still, it's a really pretty color! I actually bought it because I was looking for a dupe of OPI's Mermaid Tears (light aqua) and while this is in the same color family, it's definitely darker than MT. The pic above is misleading because this polish is definitely darker and less 'pastel' than that in person.
The first coat is transparent and streaky, but the 2nd coat immediately takes care of the streakiness. I added a 3rd coat for full opacity. The finish is interesting, I thought it'd be more of a creme finish but it's actually more of a jelly finish, albeit more opaque than a normal jelly. It's a little runny so it does require a steady hand, but it's not difficult to work with. Overall, great polish and you get a big-ish bottle of it (Orly polishes are big!) for about $6 from a Sally's.
EDIT: Taking off a lippie because this stained my nails badly. 2 weeks later and they're still kind of green! Definitely use a bottom coat with this color.
This is an absolutely gorgeous color, but I just don't have the patience to apply it. It is extremely sheer and streaky. Every time I start to apply it, I get annoyed and remove it because it looks awful. I'm sure it would look great if you had the time/patience to work with this difficult polish, but it's definitely not for me.
gorgeous light teal green colour, definitely needed 3 coats to eliminate streaks but worth the effort. My first Orly polish, will buy more!
This is an amazing teal color perfect for the summer. I really like the rubber cap and the narrow brush, as I have short nails, and these features make it easier to apply the polish. If you wear a base coat before applying the polish, it makes it much easier to remove it, without any staining, as I discovered. Green With Envy isn't a true green, it is more like a greenish turquoise or a teal and reminds me a little of the ocean. You need two or three coats to achieve the true color, so don't be disappointed if you apply one coat at first and it looks weak and watery.
I really recommend this polish as a color for summer pedicures. It looks great on toenails.
I would describe this polish as more of a teal. I am really smitten with the textured grip of the Orly cap and thin brush. Yes, I am a fan of skinnier brushes ala Essie because when it comes down to it I am a slob and will get nail polish everywhere with a wider brush. The application has a jelly-like consistency and either 2 thick coats or 3 thin will achieve perfect results.
Hands down, amazing creme green color! Not only is it a great color, orly nail polishes last forever without chipping! love this color!
A nice medium creme color. It was streaky and took 3 coats to even out. It's a great color, not too light and not to dark...perfect green for summer! It's got a jelly consistency. I picked this up on sale at Ulta for $4.99. =)
I had been lemming this for awhile when i bought it at sally's. this is a fun color for summer. it goes on nice and glossy and it is just as vibrant on your nails as it looks in the bottle. if you want to try a fun color green with envy would be a great one to try!
Great green color! I bought it at Sally's for maybe 7-8 dollars. It instantly caught my eye because it's such a pretty green color. I like the finished look, but it does take 3 coats. Goes on very sheer and it did streak a bit on me (maybe because of the base coat?). A great summer color.
I just bought this product at Sally's. I've been looking for the perfect green CREAM all summer. Finally found it. I loved it. I took it off now, but I think I'm going to put it on again after I take my current color off. It looked so nice on my nails and my toe nails...and it lasted a very long time. Way longer than my China Glazes, OPI's and Essie polishes. I think I need to look more into some different ORLY colors.
