Green On The Runway is a green to red-brown duochrome shimmer.
I squeak when I see something new and exciting, but I think I might have done full-on Kermit arms for this one. I mean...wow! I have a ton of shifty duo-or-multichromes, but I hadn't seen anything like this before. Sure, it's not a crazy in-your-face multichrome, but I love it the same way I loved the two they put out last fall. It's shiftier than Muir Muir On The Wall and is almost its opposite, in a way. The formula is similar though and it's also a three coater.
What I don't get is its tie-in to Sprite. Sprite itself is clear, with green and blue packaging. I'm not feeling any connection between the two here. That's literally the only negative thing I can think to say about this stunning polish though.
It's kinda the perfect shade for transitioning from summer to autumn, since it goes from grassy green to mellow brown.
I mentioned that I'd never seen anything like it. Well...while out shopping a couple of weeks ago, that changed. I was poking around in a Rite Aid out of my usual stomping grounds when I saw a dusty, neglected Brucci display. Black Emerald caught my eye with its green-to-red shift. I hadn't even bought Green On The Runway yet, but I felt it was my duty to buy both and see just how close they might be.

Bottom line: Love! I mean...L-U-V! If you're a duochrome nut like me, you need this. If you're an OPI fangirl like me, you need this. In general, you need this.
Dunno if anyone's noticed that my nails have been changing lengths between posts lately. I usually try to get all of one length's posts out before I show the new length, but between the vacation and the new Zoyas...it didn't work out that way this time. I've got a few more left with the crazylong nails, then it's back to my current regular long. I'm torn between shortening them even more or growing them out and sharpening them for Halloween like I did last year. Thoughts?
