Fall 2011 Nail Polish Trend – Military Greens

From olive to hunter, military inspired designs and colors dominated the Fall 2011 runway shows. Those shades came straight off the models and into nail polish bottles in a number of the fall collections.

Over the next couple weeks I’ll be walking you through the big nail polish trends for the season, showing you the newest shades to hit the market and the old school colors you may already own that will get your nail style ready for fall.

Butter London Wallis ($14, butterLondon.com, Beauty.com, ULTA, Nordstrom) is a metallic olive green that leans heavily towards gold. The base is a dark olive but the green-gold flakes floating on the surface give this colors a foil-like finish.

China Glaze Westside Warrior ($3, Head2ToeBeauty, TransDesign. $6, Sally Beauty) reminds me of castelvetrano olives. I only recently discovered these buttery gems through a friend and I’m obsessed. My only complaint with Westside Warrior is that the formula wasn’t up to par. It was pigmented but a little goopy and hard to work with.

Color Club Artsy Crafty ($8, ShopColorClub.com) is a lush forest green with a greyed underbelly that gives it some grit.

Cult Nails In A Trance ($10, CultNails.com) is a browned olive green shimmer. The satiny finish and old world charm hearkens back to medieval tapestries or royal gowns.

Deborah Lippmann Billionaire ($16, DeborahLippmann.com, Barneys, Neiman MarcusNordstrom) is the darkest of the fall green offerings. It’s as if you took a vivid hunter green and drabbed it out with a touch of brown and black. The color was used at the Lela Rose F/W 2011 show and it’s got this great jelly consistency that is packed with pigment.

Finger Paints Military Green ($4.99, SallyBeauty.com) honestly looks terrible in the bottle. It was kind of yellowish, like baby poo or something but on the nail, LOVE! It’s reminiscent of Essie Sew Psyched or Chanel Khaki Vert and applies flawlessly on the nail.

MAC Fatigues ($15, MACCosmetics.com) is part of the MAC Me Over! collection and what I love about it is that it’s not as yellow based as the other colors in this category. It’s more cool tone friendly.

OPI Uh-Oh Roll Down The Window ($8.50,OPI.com for locations) is a vivid olive hue. I know the words feel wrong together but I’ve been calling it a bright drab. The name is the only thing that bothers me. Even though, at my core, I’m a 12 year old boy with a love for potty humor, mixing that with something in the beauty world doesn’t sit right with me.

Zoya Dree ($8, Zoya.com) is the darkened version of OPI Uh-Oh. They definitely live in the same neighborhood, go to the same school and may even share some classes together.

Zoya Yara ($8, Zoya.com) – Okay so I have this sweater that I refuse to get rid of even though it’s so out of style it’s not even funny. The reason I keep it, it looks exactly like Yara! It’s this yellow-based green knit hoodie that has small golden threads woven throughout. Now that I have a polish to match it, why would I donate it?

    I don’t mind them and probably have at least one in my stash that could (Essie’s Sew Psyched) probably count. That said it really isn’t my favorite trend, especially since this color family seems to have a tendency to pull warm which I don’t pull off well.

    I don’t normally pay much mind to trends unless the color of choice is a fave of mine anyway – like gray as the new neutral – in which case I’ll lap ‘em up. LOL

  2. Kimberly says:

    I’ve been rocking a lot of Essie Sew Psyched and RBLs Diddy Mow and Orbis Non Sufficit.

    Also, check out this mani. I used this idea last week: http://nailside.blogspot.com/2011/05/gi-jane.html

  3. Jess says:

    I…want to like these. I’ve walked past Uh Oh Roll Down the Window about 50 times, but I just can’t bring myself to buy it. And while I love the idea of Wallis, I’m not sure if I’d end up wearing it that much. I did pick up Butter London’s British Racing Green today, though, if that counts; it’s kind of similar to Artsy Crafty.

    It is a fun trend in theory, though…if I was going for a true olive/army green, I’d probably get Zoya Dree, now that I’ve seen it next to Uh Oh. It’s a little more smoky and a little less of that certain funky green shade (trying to keep it classy here, heh).

  4. stephanie says:

    yeah, uh-oh roll down the window AND it’s a pooply color. no thanks.

  5. Jim says:

    I love BB Couture Grenade. It is an awesome military green.

  6. Jen says:

    I have loved and will always love greens!! Pretty or “ugly,” I will never get tired of this color. Maybe being born on St. Patrick’s Day has something to do with it. :) This post just made my day, thanks!

  7. Krystian says:

    I want to jump on this trend because the colors are so unusual for me and I love the muted hues, but I’m not sure how to pull this off since I still seem clueless when it comes to picking colors that suit me. Not to be a bother, but could you make a suggestion for my skin tone? If not, that’s okay. You are a busy lady, after all. :)

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      It’s really hard to suggest colors based on skin tone if I can’t see you in person. Then again I wear colors that totally don’t flatter me if I love it.

      • Krystian says:

        My skin has a sallowness to it that makes it hard for me to decide what looks good on me, but I guess staying away from yellow-ish colors should work, right? Some of the colors you’ve swatched really caught my attention, so I think I will do what I usually do: find colors that appeal to me, try it out, and if I like it wear it for a few days, and if I don’t, wear a different color. Thanks!

        • Katy says:

          I’d recommend Zoya Shawn.

        • kirsten says:

          If you need to avoid yellow tones then go for MAC Fatigues. Like Michelle said in the above post its not as yellow based as the others which means its much more universally flattering.

          • kirsten says:

            Of course Deborah Lippmann Billionaire and Color Club Artsy Crafty are also equally good if you’re avoiding the yellower tones.

        • Chris says:

          If your skin has warm tones like mine, maybe you can try jewel colors like deep blues, greens, burgundies and rich berries. I really love those colors. Even if you are not as dark as me (MAC NC42), they may still work for you.

  8. Barb says:

    This is sooo boring. Haven’t we been seeing these colors for the last couple of years…. Can’t these companies come up with something better?

  9. collier says:

    I’ve got Yara and Dree, and both are *super*. As far as “Uh Oh” looking like something nasty…dude, you have not seen gross until you’ve seen China Glaze “Trendsetter” on your hands. Urgh.

  10. Katy says:

    This is one of my favorite polish categories. When I first found your blog, I was ecstatic to see that RBL No More War existed, and then I was excited when Zoya Shawn came out. When I got them both, I did camo print nail art. Looks awesome with gold glitter.

  11. TropicalChrome says:

    The nice thing about being a “woman of a certain age” is that you know what does and does not work for you. You indulge in the trends when they do, and can gleefully ignore them when they don’t.

    This, for me, is a huge don’t.

    • kaydi says:

      Wise words for a polish lover to live by ;)

    • Emmy says:

      LOL! As a ‘woman of a certain age’, I agree! I pretty much do what I want with my nails. And I get loads of compliments no matter if I am on trend or not.

      I am seriously addicted to nail polish and I love greens , but I am not sure about most of these. I guess I will have to see them in person.

  12. Jane says:

    Feasting my eyes… What a nice post. I’m loving all these popular greens, they’re similar yet so different. Thanks for sharing :)

  13. Wow, Finger Paints Military Green looks nothing like the bottle. I didn’t think that I needed it, but after seeing your swatch, I think I just might! I also now NEED Wallis. LOL at “OG’s”!!

  14. Veronica says:

    I don’t own any military greens, but some of those are gorgeous!

  15. Ava says:

    wow, that’s a lot of green polish! I picked up Butter London Wallis, but expect that will be my only green for the season since I have plenty of Khaki Vert leftover.

  16. Kimberly says:

    I totally agree about Berry going well with this shade of green. I look really well in those colors because it compliments my skin tone.

    And, I’ve always had some piece of clothing that is this shade. It’s just a stable in my closet.

  17. Kristi says:

    i love this trend because these colors flatter my skin tone and they’re more neutral than the brights I normally wear. That being said, I have to get my hands on Wallis! I’ve been in love with it since the first time I saw it.

  18. Ulmiel says:

    Aaah … can I get a ‘YES’, mixed with ‘woohoo’, with *finally* on top? Thank you!

    I adore this type of colours, absolutely adore it! Let’s see, I’m getting both of Zoyas and skipping the China Glaze (probably), due to how similar it looks to some of my colours and I have a dupe of Finger Paints at home too. From the old ones I have Hectic, Gemma, Sew Psyched and a good dupe of Khaki Vert.
    Quite a few of the greens are coming out in Europe with some of the brands, also some fugly colours in the similar colour vein. I don’t mind them one bit!

  19. Marta says:

    I don’t think these shades look the best on me but they definitely are TRENDY and so you will find me sporting this shade in the fall/winter… I love the bottle shots you took! Thank you for this post! :)

  20. DT says:

    Ugh, I hate colors like this. This is one trend I’ll be avoiding.

    FYI, an OPI promo video paired “Uh Oh, Roll Down the Window” with being pulled over by a cop, which goes with the road trip theme. It had nothing to do with a smell.

  21. Tres says:

    I love these greens, I just pulled out an old Revlon Street Wear that fits this category and found myself with Sew Psyched in my shopping cart today. I’ve done camouflage nails for years, usually on my toes. Think it’s time to up the ante and try my fingers.

  22. Adria says:

    Don’t forget American Apparel ‘Army Jacket’! It also falls in this category. I loveloveloveLOVE this trend, only a little bit because my husband is in the military. Every time I wear a color like this, I feel like I’m showing my support of him and his comrades in a mature and sophisticated way. I really can’t resist a khaki or olive drab polish, regardless of label, lol. I have everything from Zoya ‘Dree’ to AA ‘Army Jacket’ to ReBeL ‘No More War’. I love them all!

  23. Agree this is SUCH a trend this fall, I can’t believe so many major brands all had the same idea here :)

  24. Krissy says:

    I can say I would have walked right by finger paints military green seeing that bottle. Now I need that color. I’m really loving the army green colors for fall.

  25. Kristina says:

    I love this post! These greens are awesome….I have some of them and intend to wear them this fall.

  26. beachgal says:

    OPI tried to push an olive green in the mid 90′s. It did not go over and I know I got rid of mine as a total outcast. We just were not ready for anything edgy I guess then. It was a golden army green as I recall. Uh Oh reminds me of an old boyscout uniform color but that really would not have gone with anything map wise around driving around the US.

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      Are you talking about OPI Quebec & Call? At the time it came out, I wasn’t into the olive shades and I passed it up at Trade Secret when they had a bin of them for $2.

  27. Hannah says:

    I saw your new class and freaked because Gemma wasn’t there! Then I had a total “duhhh” moment because Gemma’s not really a new class kid, is she?
    Hopefully I can rock her in the near future. I used to think she was a little plain (I used to think Zoya Adina and CG Below Deck were plain too -.- ) but now that summer’s over I agree that she’ll make a nice fall color.

  28. Allison says:

    I LOVE Butter London Wallis. Any ideas for a dupe that can easily be found in Canada (OPI, China Glaze, Essie, drugstore brand)?

  29. Stephanie says:

    I actually have an old school olive green you missed, or disn’t grab back in the day! Lol that makes me oddly proud:)

    I am one of few people until recently that LOVED this color for my nails and have been wearing it since I was in middle school!

  30. Julia says:

    Being that I have three of the Originals (Essie Sew Psyched, RBL No More War, and AA Hunter) and three of the New Class (Wallis, Westside Warrior, and Yara), I would say this is definitely one of my preferred color groups! I can appreciate that it isn’t a set of colors that is universally flattering/to everyone’s taste, but I find these colors so wonderfully strange and elegant at the same time.

    I’m still contemplating Zoya Dree and FingerPaints Military Green although I’m concerned that the latter is too close to Sew Pschyed for me to get much extra utility out of. I am quite fond of OPI Uh Oh’s color, but the name so doesn’t do it for me that I can’t imagine picking it up–not at full price anyway, maybe if it hits the clearance shelf (my favorite place at any Ulta) at some point!

  31. So I might also add that I love Sephora by OPI Caught with My Khaki’s down. It was from the latest spring collection and is by far my favorite in the military drab category. I did pick up Zoya Yara and am so looking forward to wearing it this week! I love your color swatch.

  32. Ashley says:

    I disagree. Nailpolish is and should be fun, its one of the few things I do indulge in that is “trendy” because why not? its cheap and it comes off, its not like a tatoo or something.

    I think as usual, this trend was started by chanel who just came out with Peridot. I just picked it up its stunning if you havent seen it, its sort of a holo, and its chanel!

  33. Sandy says:

    I love this trend. It’s kinda last year’s thing (I think chanel’s trio stated it pretty well) but I’m happy it’s staying with us for another season!
    I own Essie sew psyched and Chanel Peridot and plan on getting Zoya Yara, which is gorgeous.

  34. kaydi says:

    This is an awesome comparison post. I own 2 of the oldies but they we both cremes so I still plan on getting 2 shimmers from the new releases: Zoya and Cult Nails. Looking fwd to you doing this type of post with other top trends.

  35. Hannah says:

    I realllly love this colour group! To me it feels like is a new version of the taupe neutral we all love now. Another great one is Jessica Victorian Crush.
    I can’t decide if I love Butter’s Wallis or not!

  36. Stephanie says:

    Absolutely loved this post! Thanks so much. Looking forward to the fall nail trends. About the green trend, you didn’t include my favorite olive/gold polish … China Glaze Peace on Earth. This polish has been actively suppressing my lemming for Chanel’s Peridot. Le sigh.

  37. Tiger says:

    Zoya Yara is too good to be true…

  38. Crystal says:

    I love army greens! The creamy ones make me happy & then that Zoya Yara – just gorgeous! I want to do a military gradient mani (I’m sure you’d be able to do a sweet one!) and I’m dying to find a less expensive DUPE for MAC Fatigues though… any suggestions?

  39. Astrid says:

    I had China Glaze Westside Warrior, but a customer in my salon bought my bottle. Now I regret that, must find me a new bottle though. Your swatches are awesome!

  40. audrey says:

    Glad to see your review of this trend. Love it! The first I saw was Uh Oh and bought it immediately. Have since seen Dree, and having some buyers remorse. I don’t know if it is my skin tone or the lighting, but my Uh Oh looks much bluer and darker than yours. I like yours better. I’ve seen other swatches where they look almost the same. Could the manufacturing lots be this different? There was a lot of pigment settled at the bottom of mine, yours? Anyway, I thought I had convinced myself that I didn’t need Yara too, but…

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      It’s probably the lighting. Though OPI has been known to release different batches of the same color, it’s usually not at the launch. It’s when the color is reproduced later.

  41. Anastasia says:

    I am in love with this trend, I just found Ulta nail polish Army of 1 and think it’s amazing! And it’s on sale for 2.00 on the website now!! I think the camo/olive greens are very classy and unique at the same time! I will have to purchase more of the ones you have just posted!!!

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      I just picked up that color at the ULTA that just opened near me. Too bad I didn’t have it before I posted this. It’s very pretty.

  42. TLM says:

    I’ve had Sew Psyched for about a year now, and it’s the first time I’ve ever felt I was ahead of a trend. Woo-hoo!

    I find with these greens, I either like very little yellow, or a LOT of yellow, but not something in the middle. To be specific, I don’t like China Glaze’s Westside Warrior of the non-metallic greens above. That bottle-green shade is just sickly to me. That said, all shades are relative, and the same color looks very different on different skin tones, and that green might look great on someone else. I just know I won’t be rockin’ it any time soon. ;)

  43. Taffy says:

    I love green polish and I’m always happy to add more to my collection. I’ll be on the lookout for Wallis as it looks like a beauty. BTW, I found that this was a very informative post! I sort of like it better than when an entire collection is reviewed.

  44. Joan says:

    My stomach is turning! Looks like your fingers got into something they should NOT HAVE.

  45. Erica says:

    I love these colors and have been waiting for something like this to come out for a long time. My favorite colors to wear are army greens and greys so finally being able to have a wide selection of polishes to choose from is fantastic.

  46. Vanessa says:

    Just got Zoya Gemma…yeah, I know I’m probably behind trend on that one, but I’m wondering if it fits this trend or is too summery?

  47. I absolutely LOVE the butter london one and zoya yara… I *NEED* these, why are they not very accessible in Canada? DARN IT.

  48. Stacey says:

    You forgot to mention RBL’s recycle

  49. Dawne says:

    Thanks so much for doing these comparison pics! I was waiting for someone to do it. I really want something from this trend but I couldn’t decide which one to get since I can’t find them all in one place to compare them. I think I like Zoya Yara the best followed by BL Wallis and Cult Nails In a Trance. I do have Zoya Gemma so I’ll wear that one until I get my hands on Zoya Yara. Thanks again.

  50. Sabrina says:

    Lancome – Pop Petrol
    Actually wearing it now. I know it was an European only release, but I know you have a bottle! :)

  51. Jill P says:

    Nail polish color should never be age oriented..if you are a trendy person and dress the part you can wear any color!

  52. Katya says:

    Isn’t Chanel Peridot of the same or similar descent? Or is it slightly too crazy for ‘military’?
    Also, I adore this trend as I generally adore such colours and will be sure to try out the Deborah Lipmann, looks so rich!

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      I consider Peridot more of a metallic duochrome that looks more gold than green but that’s just me. I didn’t feel it was a good fit for this category.

    • Jenn says:

      For $25, it SUCKS. It chipped the next day and is really thin. The color is beautiful, but it does not last. Comes in a tiny bottle too.

  53. Amber Sexton says:

    I think Wallis is the only one of these that I absolutely need. I love the Deborah Lippman one though, I just don’t know if I need another near black color.

  54. TLM says:

    Essie’s POWER CLUTCH is another great grey-green for fall!!

  55. Julia says:

    forever 21 makes an olive nail polish with gold shimmer, kinda foil-y. it’s lovely. http://d1535dk28ea235.cloudfront.net/preset_65/_DSC0048-1.jpg

  56. Cat says:

    This is an awesome post. Not necessarily because I’m in love with this trend (I personally only have four of all the polishes you mention above) but just because it’s awesome to see a huge comparison post like this, considering how pretty much every collection released this fall has a polish that falls into this category.

  57. Mooni says:

    You’re the first person to make these colors look attractive to me :)

  58. Katya says:

    I know I’ve already left a comment here but– I was wondering if you know a Polish company called Inglot? They produce samoe really great shades; the ones that may fall into this trend are nos 319, 954 and 57 – the last one may be discontinued.
    So, if you wanna check out some Polish polish (how cool does this sound?), go here: http://www.inglotcosmetics.com/ You can order them online, they’re 10$ a bottle.
    And no, I’m not connected in anyway with the company, I just adore their polishes.

  59. I’m really surprised that you included Hunter Green from American Apparel but didn’t include Army Jacket. (I’m assuming you don’t own that colour.) AJ is much better suited for this military green collection.

    I’m re-in love with Butter London Wallis.
    great post!

    • All Lacquered Up says:

      You’re right, I don’t own that color. Plus I wanted to show a hunter color from the past that is still accessible.

  60. MissDoll says:

    Cult nails In A Trance and Butter London Wallis are my favorite, because they are something special with all the shimmer and they really stood out from a crowd

  61. Kristen says:

    Showing us all the trend colors and comparing it to previous ones is a BRILLIANT idea!! I am not a green fan like you are, but I am looking forward to what you show us with other colors. Thank you so much!

  62. Lauren says:

    I have BL Wallis, but I haven’t tried it yet. Loving Yara and I’m really not big on greens. I usually prefer blues and purples.

  63. Aimee P says:

    Essie Sew Psyched is one of my favorite polishes, its green but yet I feel its very neutral and even work appropriate! I also own Zoya Shawn and Zoya Yara and love love love both. Can this military green trend stay in forever?!

  64. Chloe says:

    Love this new feature!! (It helps that I love military greens, but it is a great idea to post all the colors together)

    Will you be posting FNO plans like you did last year?? I am trying to plan my night and your suggestions last year were the best.

  65. Mo says:

    I had 7 of these colors to choose from and opted for “Billionaire,” which I hadn’t worn yet. LOVE it!!!

  66. Lena says:

    Awww you must be in the green heaven, Michelle, with all these greens to choose from. Time to whip out my OPI At Your Quebec and Call, remember her?!

  67. Styrch says:

    I keep calling this “pea soup” trend. I like your label of military better. To be honest, though, I’m tired of it already. Then again, I’ve never been a huge green lover.

  68. Anna says:

    I don’t like greens typically, but I am now wearing Borghese Euro Green, and I am in love! I think it somewhere between Butter London Wallis and Cult Nails In a Trance… It has this antique vibe to it.

  69. Alecia says:

    My favorite color that made the cut was Deborah Lippmann’s Billonaire it is stunning in person. I’ve been looking for a color like it for a year now.

  70. Sheila Gage says:

    My FAVORITES!!! Awesome post. I might include Borghese Euro Green, Rimmel Rags to Riches and Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Bronze Ablaze among these, but not sure if you’re only doing 3-free and I don’t think these are.

  71. Robin says:

    loving Zoya’s Yara! idk if it is still available but i am going to look for it

  72. Marilia says:

    Oh, God! Green again. Those greens shades remind me army, hospital… Terrible. I hope blue can be replaced them. By the way, I’m going to Chanel store buying my fav blue. Get out of the green!

  73. Kialaya says:

    I just recently bought a khaki green because I wanted it to go with some clothes. It’s a new brand called LOLA (by Perse) that a shop in Spain called Primor where I went to buy told me had just come out. It’s number 020 Military Khaki. It is very veriy similar to the Chanel in the second picture, actually it’s even very similar in design but I’m pretty sure it is much cheaper LOL. I would reccommend you grab it if you can, it’s quite good, lovely colour, perfect with two passes, creme with a nice gleam finish.

  74. GwenSA says:

    Target has an exclusive shade for this fall in the Nicole by OPI collection called Green Up Your Act. I think it would definitely fall under this military green category.

    • Tiffany Anderson says:

      I agree with you. I live in Brooklyn, so OPI’s Uh-Oh can’t be found right now. I took this list to Target with me & almost bought Essie’s Sew Psyched, until I saw Green Up Your Act. It’s the new “funky” color to fall nail lacquer wardrobe. ;) It will add a quirk to the red, deep purple, and beige I’ll be wearing.

  75. flipflopgal says:

    Really liked Wallis, but it is a bit more than I am willing to pay (although I am seriously considering it for Wallis & Knees Up, unless I can find a lesser expensive substitute!). Went off to Sally’s where I picked up Nina Ultra Pro Mossy Britches, an olivey, goldy, greeny metallic. From your swatches it looks kind of close to Nars Mash, maybe? Not sure, but I kind of like it (not my usual color at all, but the more I read your blog, the more colors I am willing to try!)

  76. Jen says:

    Your nails are so perfect. Gah! You make these greens look so beautiful. Especially love Zoya one. Thanks for the amazing work you do. Your website is the best nail site ever.

  77. Valesha says:

    I must say, after seeing this post, i quickly became OBSESSED with military green polish. Especially “Billionaire”, I just had to have it. So, I went out and spent the pretty penny it cost, and I was actually disappointed with the color (formula is great, as usual.) It looked mostly black (people even commented on my “black” nail polish) and only looked slightly green in the sunlight. Maybe it was just me? It’s looks amazing here, but I’m thinking about returning it. I think I’ll swatch it next to “Here today… Aragon Tomorrow.” I’m curious to see if they are similar on the nail…

    On a side note, I also bought “Yara” and “Wallis” and really enjoy those shades! Both are unique and have gotten me many compliments! Also got bL British Racing Green” and look forward to trying it (although it isn’t really military-ish.)

    Wow, I must REALLY be into these colors (or, obsessed with nail polish and have almost all shades of all colors). I used to have Deborah Lippmann Billionaire, but it just looked black on me. I have Finger Paints Military Green, OPI Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window, Zoya Dree, Zoya Yara, Essie Sew Psyched, Zoya Gemma, Essie Power Clutch, maybe Zoya Shawn (can’t remember), and I came across this article because I’m thinking about buying Cult Nails In a Trance so I was looking up swatches.
