The only reason I love March is because it contains the “greenest” holiday of year, St. Patrick’s Day. Now I’m not even 1% Irish but I still embrace the day because it gives me a reason to green out. So for the rest of the month, all the ALU Archives posts will be green!

To kick things off, I turn to one of the most unique greens I own, NYX Jungle. Jungle isn’t full on emerald, it falls somewhere between jade and teal. It’s got this deep, murky, sea water look that transforms depending on the light and angle. What you see below is two coats but with three the shade leans even more towards green.

If you haven’t used NYX polishes before, you really are missing out on a great discount brand. The flat NYX brush is thinner and easier to use than some other brands that have converted to flat (cough, OPI, cough) and the price is fantastic ($4.00/ea).

I order NYX direct from The shipping is fast and reasonable. 12 bottles via USPS is around $8. I’ve seen NYX polishes at outlet mall fragrance shops but other than that, finding them in stores is kind of hit or miss. You can also order online from and

What do you think kids? Any other NYX fans? What are your fave shades? Who else is loving Jungle?

    I have Jungle, and have eyed the polishes in my local store on many an occasion, but I’m wondering what you think about the consistency. I’ve found that on me, at least, I need at least three coats to bring it to anything like opacity.

    I just got in an order of about 18 NYX Girls polishes, which are clear with confetti glitter and all sorts of crazy sparkles. I love them, and they were only $2 each!
