Enchanted by Emerald

I was in such a quandary the other night, umm-ing and ahh-ing over what colour to paint my nails. I have far too many nail polishes but sometimes I still cannot find the ideal colour...
Liking to embrace a spot of matchy-matchy, I knew I was wearing some elements of green in my outfit the next day, so I opted for this little gem!




This is Barry M's Emerald Green No.284 and really is a lush, verdant, rich colour. 
I like Barry M polishes, due to the purse-friendly price tag and the large array of colours they have to offer. I did a post back here displaying my ever-growing collection.


FYI - my nails are of the fake variety...courtesy of Nailene
Green has been heralded one of the key colour trends for AW10, from khaki with a military and utility twist to olive green chic and emerald greens rich with texture and depth, as beautifully demonstrated below. Kristin Davis and a look from Oscar de la Renta's Fall 10 catwalk. 

Are you going green with envy this season?
