The ALU Archives – Orly Green Apple

The ALU Archives focuses on older, beloved shades from the All Lacquered Up stash.

To celebrate the coming of Daylight Savings Time (finally!) and the ability to leave work in daylight, I decided to continue my green for March theme with a lighter, brighter shade. This week I pulled out Orly Green Apple from my stash.

Green Apple is a vivid lime creme. The bottle color is very deceptive in that the polish dries darker on the nail. It has an almost pastel quality that goes away once applied. And holy pigmentation batman!! I barely needed two coats, it just flows on the nail so perfectly. If you’re looking for a fun spring green, this one is definitely a winner.

I picked up my bottle of Orly Green Apple from ($3.50) but you can also find it on ($3.18) or ($3.19)

    I bought this color last week from Trans Design! I’m glad to know that it dries darker, because when I saw the bottle color, I was a bit disappointed. Now I’m looking forward to trying it out.

    Hi Michelle:

    What a pretty colour! I think you can also get Orly from Sally Beauty Supply.
    Have you ever tried Sally Girl nail polish? They are 99 cents (or 89 with a Sally card) and are at Sally Beauty supply. They are mini bottles. I’ve never tried them, but I wanted to know if you have heard of them? I may try the Sally Girl brand.. their lip glosses look cool too.

    I was just searching for swatches of this color, because I picked up a bottle of Green Apple at Sally this week. It’s listed as “New!” on the collar tag, and the color on my nails is far more greyed and not nearly as vivid as the bottle you have here! I wonder if they changed the color and pushed it back out!
