I’ve been looking for the perfect dark green nail polish for awhile now. I’ve had a few that really screamed “This colour is NOT for the over 40 crowd” and were just too juvenile, sparkly or bright. I have and adore Chanel Khaki Vert, but that is more of a muted neutral green. I’ve been thinking a deep dark almost black green, and with no shimmer preferably. Well, I pretty much swooned when Deborah Lippmann’s Fall 2011 colors were launched. There was Single Ladies, the perfect vampy crimson (check) Stormy Weather (deep dark grey- still have to get) and Billionaire- my perfect deep green!

Lippmann’s Billionaire is a dark neutral green- not too yellow, not too blue- that would work perfectly on any skin tone. Is it really based on the green tone of the US greenback? Maybe. But whatever it is, it’s perfect. My HG green. Dark and vampy, and perfectly office appropriate. It looks dark and elegant, not elf-like or costume-y. It is a sheer almost jelly formula. I applied 2 coats because I couldn’t wait, but 3 would work too. No topcoat- yet- and look at that shine! It applies smoothly and beautifully and has the magical Lippmann formula that makes my nails hard and healthy. Looking for something fun and different for fall? Try Billionaire. It’s so money….
