Over the holiday period, I discovered that I had very few good quality greens in my stash. I had a few cheap, off-brands, but the only good quality greens I had were dark, so I decided I need to expand my polish wardrobe with some nice, high-quality, medium to light greens. I ordered this after reading many, many reviews and seeing many, many swatches. And, I'm sad to say, it's not very flattering on my pale, cool-toned skin, which kind of surprises me.
This is a medium, cool-toned green. It does, indeed, remind me of jade, though as jade comes in all kinds of shades of green and even purple, that's not saying much. I guess I should say, "I've seen jade this colour". I do wear greens (though not often), but this polish, unfortunately, manages to bring out all the red in my fingers (lobster hands!) while simultaneously bringing out any and all yellow undertones in my skin. My hands look both reddened and sallow at the same time. :(
This might work okay on my toes, and I can probably make it work under a glitter or as part of some sort of nail art design, something where this is not the main colour, but I don't think I'll ever be able to wear this as a straight manicure. That makes me sad, because the colour is really pretty, and the formula is nice, goes on smoothly, self-levels beautifully, and is absolutely opaque in two coats.
It's not the fault of the polish that it doesn't look great on me, but as this is a personal review of my use of the polish, I can't give it more than three lippies, and that's all for the nice formula and beautiful colour. I wish this looked better on me, and that I could give it more lippies, but if you're pale and cool-toned like I am, I feel honour bound to warn you: this probably won't work any better for you than it does for me, sadly.

Okay, so this color is a very pretty sea foam green shade, and it looks great on the nails.
You're gonna have to do two coats to get a solid color, and it does take awhile to dry but other than that this is a great polish and the color is beautiful.

The price was decent and the color looked good in the bottle, but I was disappointed by the result. The polish was thick and globby when it went on and when it dried it looked as if I'd put on wite-out and colored it green. Not very flattering and it's a shame because I liked the color in the bottle.

I am so in love with this nail polish.
First off, it's a beautiful forest green creme and its color is unique to my collection. Although it's a green polish, it's more sophisticated than most because of its dark hue and creme finish. I may be in the minority, but I would wear this polish to work. Also, it works well in all seasons. It's perfect for winter and the holiday season because of it's deep green color, but it also works well in spring and summer for this same reason (everything is turning green!). I also love it in the fall, when the deeper and richer color palettes are coming out.
Second, the formula is perfect. It applies like a dream with no streaks, goopiness, or dragging. It also lasts on my nails for 3-5 days with only minimal tip wear, which is unheard of for me.
This may be my absolute favorite nail polish!

Jade is the new black is the most gorgeous green nail polish I have ever tried! It is a perfect green creme, completely opaque in one coat if you are careful, or 2 if you are more like me and not so good with applying :) with a base and top coat this polish lasts me about a week... I love all the polishes that i own from the hong kong collection, but this one is my favourite :) not to mention the name is awesome!

Jade is my favourite color and I was extremely happy to find this nail polish. It's the perfect color for me and I receive a lot of compliments whenever I use it, from both women and men. And it's an OPI..so no complains about the quality of the product...it last for almost a week on my nails, it dries very, very fast..not to mention that I have purchased it one year ago and I can still use it without problems. It's my favourite nail polish ever and I will rebuy it

Meh. This is a rich forest green color. However I feel that the color is not so unique &/or the formula so great to warrant spending the $ (i.e. sinful has a dupe with a better formula). At times the polish was hard to apply so application is key. The formula was too thin it took 2-3 coats to get an even color. But worse was sometimes the formula did not self level. Hopefully Nailtique polish thinner can fix these issues. The only reason I still have this is because I was too lazy to make a trip solely to return this polish. Not my favorite.

The perfect green polish. That's all I really need to say. Application is wonderful, smooth and streak-free. The colour is bright yet understated and very flattering on most skintones. A colour to wear all year round.

I was super excited to finally FIND a bottle of this, after being on the hunt for a few weeks and seeing it sold out everywhere.
Maybe it's that I'm too yellow-toned fair for this shade, but it just looks sickly on me. Like, it reminds me of hospital scrubs, and wearing it makes me queasy.
It must just be my skin tone. In the bottle it's great.
So if you're fair like I am, this may not be the right shade of jade for you.

This is one of my favourite green polishes. I have dark/tan skin with yellow orange undertones and the colour looks amazing against it. The formula is quite creamy but not so that it's difficult to apply. It goes on beautifully and is opaque in just a couple of coats. Although it is quite glossy I still like to wear it with a top coat. I only change it when I can see a really visible gap between the colour and my cuticles. I can wear it for 7-8 days without it chipping. One of the only polishes I own that survives chipping from my guitar strings.
