  1. Weekly Nail Polish Giveaway Time! | | June 3, 2013
  1. Jenn says:

    The first emerald nail polish I ever owned — and I think the only one I’ve ever owned — is a Wet ‘n Wild one, which honestly sucks. ;) I’d love to try this one!

  2. Alison says:

    It’s a beautiful polish! Here’s hoping I win one! ;-)

  3. Christina says:

    Zoya Ivanka! :)

  4. Vedrana says:

    The first emerald green polish I ever bought was Kost #52. I was eleven or twelve at the time and I finally quit biting my nails and discovered nail polish. The first one i got when I rediscovered that world was On The Edge, by Serbian brand Aura.

  5. purple_rain says:

    This was so much fun :) With probably the best possible result too, ha.

    My first, though, was from Essence, “All Access” (gorgeous, I tell ya!).

  6. Alison says:

    D’oh, I always forget to read the prompt before commenting…my first emerald I think was Color Club Wild Cactus.

  7. *Ky* says:

    My very first emerald nail polish was one of the most beautiful ever: Emerald Sparkle! China Glaze did a great work with it… BTW, congrats to Saint George and to Adina!

  8. Christen Lee says:

    First emerald polish was China Glaze Emerald!

  9. Donna says:

    It was over 25years ago and I think it was either Sally Hanson or Hard Candy. I remember buying it with my girlfriends in our local small town pharmacy. We thought it was so much more daring then the pinks our moms normally let us wear

  10. Liz says:

    My first green was Posh by Revlon. I absolutely LOVE that emerald as well!

  11. Samantha says:

    This is such a pretty emerald shade! I’d love to have because my birthstone is emerald.

  12. Paulina says:

    Oh I don’t have that many, but I think it was from Catrice

  13. Jen Greenman says:

    Lovely, I really want to try it .

  14. Jen G says:

    Thanks for all of your hard work, this was a lot of fun. I’m going to have to order my first AEngland polish now!

  15. Shannon says:

    My first emerald polish I ever owned was actually Zoya Holly from a couple years ago. Since then my polish collection has expanded far out from just the pinks and reds :-P

  16. Denisse says:

    Sad to say that I don’t own any emerald green nail polish… but this shade looks very pretty!

  17. Brittany says:

    Oh, I think it might have been Four Leaf Clover? I still love that shade so much and I’m a little sad it didn’t win haha

  18. Shaina says:

    The first I owned would be Zoya Ivanka!

  19. Dyanna says:

    My favorite (China Glaze Running In Circles) got knocked out pretty early, but the A England is a deserving winner! Thanks for the contest!

  20. Renee K says:

    Thanks for the great blog! I visit every day to see what’s new. I have a ton of green polishes, but don’t believe I gave any emeralds – yet.

  21. shine eye says:

    my favourite too!

  22. Zoey says:

    Wet N Wild “Sa-greena the teenage witch”

  23. Nornee says:

    First emerald green polish = Nfu.oh JS34

  24. Eszter says:

    Thanks for this superb giveaway! I voted for Zoya Ivanka in the final round because I’ve never heard of a England Saint George. So, I’m very curious about it and would be very happy to be able to try it. Most nail polishes I own are either from Zoya or China Glaze. Which is why my first emerald nail polish was China Glaze Emerald Sparkle.

  25. Melisa McKay says:

    I actually don’t own any emerald green polishes so this would be my first!

  26. Sarah says:

    First green was some green glitter from Sally Hansen…think it was called “Mistletoe”, long bar glitter; on second thought…in 5th grade I had a light green, green apple-scented polish from Limited, Too. Loved that one.

  27. Icequeen81 says:

    None, and that is disappointing,they don’t sell greens here , can you believe it?
    I know for sure was searching for one last Holiday but nothing. EMERALD FITZGERALD would be a choice , cause it has that glittery effect but also madness is pretty zoya has also a pretty one. My first and only green was Opi Here today Aragon tomorrow. was the righ vampy green for me

  28. Lauren W. says:

    I can’t remember the first emerald green I ever got, but the first green was a Nicole OPI called Cellular Celery… it’s so old, it was before you could buy the brand in stores! It’s all goopy now, but it was the most perfect soft green with gold shimmer, and i haven’t been able to find a dupe since!

  29. Perrine says:

    The fisrt green nail polish I ever owned was a Maybelline, I think, called Hyperjade ! :) But, if you consider mint as a green, so it was an Essie, Mint Candy Apple.

  30. Julis Blog says:

    It’s ANNYs Paradise on Earth! :)

  31. Julie says:

    Yeah!! My favorite nail polish ever (not only the emerald ones)won the contest! I

  32. Julie says:

    The first emerald polish I owned is Revlon

  33. Agi M. says:

    My first emerald shade was from a pretty unknown brand, Lovely. Unfortunately I cannot tell nr or name of the shade, but I remember the color clearly…

  34. Anal says:

    Actually! I dont have any emerald yet… I dream about this one! But its impossible to get them in my country (Argentina), so I

  35. Sarah says:

    i’m SO glad this won.. love me some holographic and teal– what a great combo. :)

    It was ChG Emerald Sparkle :)

  39. TropicalChrome says:

    The first emerald green I owned was Emerald Sparkle….and it’s still the only polish I own that has ever lived up to ALL its hype!

  40. Lisa says:

    Love it! My first Emerald was either CG Emerald Sparkle or CG Four Leaf Clover… I can’t remember! Must have all the emeralds!

  41. Kristin says:

    My first emerald nail polish was a Sally Hansen (I think) that I bought in middle school. I don’t have it anymore (since that was almost 15 years ago) but I remember hating the brush it came with!

  42. Carrie G. says:

    Thank you for the giveaway! I love emerald polish!!

  43. Michelle says:

    First emerald green I owned? Hmmm… I think I own one. Illamasqua Viridian and Ulta Envy are the closest to emerald I have.

  44. JWS says:

    The Color of the Year contest was so much fun!! My first ever nail polish (and first green) was China Glaze Emerald Sparkle – still one of my favorites :)

  47. Jocelyn says:

    The first emerald polish I ever owned was Sally Hansen Jumpin’ Jade! I wouldn’t have considered buying it if it weren’t for your love of the color!

  54. Amaris says:

    The first emerald polish I ever used was Sinful Colors’ San Francisco :)

  55. Vanessa says:

    I can’t say that I have a true emerald polish. This would be my first! Everything I own that’s even close is much more in the blue/teal spectrum.

  56. Kristen says:

    I’m fairly new into my polish addiction, so I don’t think I’ve *ever* owned an emerald green one. (shock! horror!)

  57. Ashley M. says:

    St. George is a beauty.

    My favorite emerald is a cheap one- Sinful Colors San Francisco!

  63. Chiro says:

    YAY for Saint George as the best emerald green polish! I’m happy as I’m also the one who voted to this particular masterpiece :)

    So my first ever Emerald green…probably it’s ChG’s Glittering Garland. It’s not included in the nominee but I think it’s also emerald green!

  64. Thanks for this giveaway! The first Emerald Green polish I ever owned was Emerald from Kiko

  65. louise says:

    SO excited about St.George winning. Emerald/green is by far my FAVORITE color (and such a better color than tangerine tango…as fun as it was :p)

  66. Iris says:

  70. PW says:

    The first emerald polish I purchased was Zoya’s Logan from the Ornate Collection. Thanks for the giveaway!

    First emerald green I ever owned was China Glaze Running in circles.

  94. rachlovespenguins says:

    I think the first emerald green I owned was from Wet n Wild, circa 1995. It didn’t have a name, only a number. I’ve had a few others as well, but St George is prettier than all of them!

  95. sr says:

    no greens!

  96. stefani says:

    Omg, i love st george,This in my wish list and I have no emerald green nail polish:(

  107. Carissa says:

    My first emerald green was China Glaze Emerald Sparkle.

  108. Xin Yu says:

    Zoya Ivanka was my first emerald polish!

  110. susan schneider says:

  116. Cindi says:

    I think my first emerald green polish was China Glaze Four Leaf Clover.

  117. Alyson says:

    Illamasqua Rampage. Love!

  118. Sarah says:

    I’m thinking back on my years of using nail polish, and of my current collection, and I don’t think I’ve ever had an EMERALD green polish. I’ve actually been on the hunt for such a polish recently – emerald is my birthstone and I truly do love the colour, I guess I’ve just never found a shade that I’ve liked enough to take home! Fingers crossed for this giveaway ;) thanks for having it!

  119. Kerry says:

    Well done! :)
    My favourite, first and ONLY emerald green polish.
    I just can’t find anything that lives up to this one!

  120. Michy says:

    Woot! That is one of the colors I’ve been jonesing for.

  121. A well-deserved win! I’ve been lusting over Saint George for months…
    My first emerald polish was Astor Fashion Studio Charleston.

  122. Lillian says:

    First emerald green polish was China Glaze’s Glittering Garland. :)

  123. Rachel says:

    I think the first emerald nail polish I ever owned was a super old Wet-n-Wild color back when I was a tween and my Mom first let me wear bright nailpolish…but the first I really remember is China Glaze Four Leaf Clover! Still have it, still love it :)

  124. Victoria S Andrews says:

    My first green was a Franken emerald! Of course wayyyyyy back then I didn’t call it a franken, I just wanted a dark vampy green and you couldn’t get one, so I made it.

  125. What a great giveaway!
    I’m not sure which Emerald green was my first but I bet it’s an OPI :D

  126. Irena Bee says:

    My very first emerald nail polis was China glaze Emerald sparkle! :)

  134. Glenda M says:

    Knew St George would take the championship, it is a GREAT color. I couldn’t tell you the name of my first emerald green color. It was a Wet ‘N Wild before they had names, many, many moons ago.

  135. Brianna says:

      And my first emerald green polish was Jade is the New Black, by OPI. Still a great classic!

  137. Andrea says:

    I actually have never owned an emerald green nail polish – the closest I’ve come was a Del Sol pale green to blue-green colour shifting nail polish. I do have a deeper, forest green Nfu Oh set of jelly polish and green fleck “top coat” though that I like :)

  138. TamalaF says:

    Zoya Ivanka!

  141. Uni says:

    You know for the longest time I hate green, but I gradually caved LOL. The very first one I bought was Sinful Colors Rise and Shine, because I needed it for special nail art. But the first one I bought because I actually loved it was Revlon Rainforest.

  142. collar wilson says:

    The first emerald polish I ever owned is Sally Hansen HD Nail Polish in Resolution. I loved it a couple of years ago and still do.

  144. Riley Rose says:

    The first emerald green polish I ever owned OPI Jade is the New Black! Love it!!!!

  145. Kellie says:

    I don’t even think I have any emerald polishes. LOL My favorite GREEN polish though is Urban Outfitters Green HOLO! It’s FANTASTIC! :)

  146. Ricki says:

    I have Color Club’s Wild Cactus. I am sure I owned one before, but I’m not sure…if I did, it was probably some Wet ‘n Wild from the late 90s.

  147. Amanda says:

    The first emerald I ever owned was one of those wet n wild 60-seconds fast dry colors! I still have it!

  148. Jenny says:

    My most emerald green polish is OPI Jade is the new Black

  151. Sarah says:

  152. Kate & Zena says:

    Illamasqua Rampage

  153. Michelle says:

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  160. Michaela says:

    First emerald was China Glaze Outta Bounds!

  161. Heather says:

    Back in high school I wasn’t at all into doing my nails, but I owned two bottles of polish that I was pretty fond of, a dark blue and a deep green. I have no idea what brand they were (I think I got them at Odd Job, one of those ‘lookit the random stuff we have!’ type stores), but I remember them very fondly. =)

  162. ritterbraten says:

    I guess the closest to the emerald colour was OPI Jade Is The New black.. not as shiny and great as a-England, but still a beautiful shade! :)

  163. Naomi says:

    I don’t know why I haven’t bought any a-england polishes yet! They’re so gorgeous and unusual!

  164. Naomi says:

    Forgot to mention my first emerald green polish! Either Models Own Green Tea or Zoya Ivanka :)

  165. Mary Jones says:

    A-England polishes are all unique. I have only seen St. George in pictures but I know it has to be even more stunning in person.

  166. Mary says:

    My first emerald green was Revlon Emerald City and I still love it to death!

  167. stellarbell says:

    I couldn’t find any emerald green polishes at any local stores, so the first emerald green polish I ever owned was one that I frankened out of a regular green polish and a shimmery black one!

  168. Kristy says:

    I’m kind of an emerald virgin, but I did just pick up WetnWild FastDry Emerald The Crown Jewel and I really love it!

  169. Andrea says:

    At first I was rooting for other emeralds, but after taking a second look at England Saint George I have to say it is a deserving winner!

  170. Bobbi says:

    Never tried a England but would love to, especially in emerald green!

  171. Spess says:

    Green is my favourite colour, so my quest to find the perfect emerald has been a long one! The first one I got that I really loved was Zoya Ivanka, and I still use it quite a lot today.

  172. titeju says:

    My first emerald nail polish was Jade is the new black !

  173. Laura says:

    Wow, thanks for the giveaway opportunity! I don’t actually own any emerald polishes yet, but A England St George and China Glaze Four Leaf Clover top my wishlist!

  174. Kendra says:

    I think one of Essie’s emeralds was my first! I wasn’t much into darker shades then, but I actually love it now!

  175. Bobbi says:

    Zoya Logan is the first emerald polish I’ve owned, has a great finish and flattering shade.

  176. april says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! And actually the first emerald nail polish I ever bought was Zoya Ivanka, the runner-up!! I have 2 bottles of it :)

  177. Beautiful greens shown, would love to have any one of them. Thanks for hosting this giveaway! I don’t own any emerald green polish, but I have neon green! Orly brand, and an unknown neon. I also have other types of lighter greens, so this St. George would be a great addition!

  178. SAsh says:

    My very first emerald polish was China Glaze Glittering Garland… I still LOVE it!

  179. amandine C. says:

    Hello =)

    My first emerald polish was something from Sinful Colors… I’m not sure of the name.

  185. Cindy Loo says:

    Embarrassingly, I’ve never owned one! I hope that changes soon!

  186. stephanie kiggins says:

    I haven’t owned a emerald green polish yet!

  187. auroragyps says:

    My first, and one of my favorite green polishes ever, is 454C from Wet’n’Wild. Why oh why can’t they bring this one back?

  188. Marie says:

    I don’t know if it quite counts as emerald, but the first green polish I ever bought was Jade is the New Black by OPI. The first real deep emerald was probably Glittering Garland by China Glaze.

  189. Leslie says:

    The first emerald green polish I owned was by Wet n Wild. I purchased it well over 14 years ago…and can’t remember the name.

  190. sara says:

    I can’t even remember the first emerald polish I bought. It might be China Glaze Emerald Sparkle.

  191. Blaise says:

    I’m honestly not sure what the first emerald green polish I owned was, but my current favorite is Reclaim by Nubar. :)

  192. Erin says:

    The first emerald green polish I ever had was some bottle my grandma gave me. It was so runny it was useless and ended up exploding 8 years later. It left a sticky residue on everything it touched. Currently, I have Zoya Ivanka as my go to emerald, but since my eyes are green, and I love green, more is not a bad thing.

  193. Terra says:

    My first emerald was Essie’s Going Incognito!

  194. Sandy says:

    Well, I have a few greens , but the truth is… I don’t own an emerald polish. Winning this giveaway will sure be a nice thing!

  195. Philosoftblu says:

    OPI jade is the new black – so glad you are doing this giveaway

    My first emerald green was Up Colours Kaleidoscope! :)

  197. Erika says:

    A Zoya not sure which one :)

  198. Lexi says:

    My first emerald polish was China Glaze Watermelon Rind (if that’s technically an emerald). Still one of my favourites.

  199. Jamie .M says:

    It was Hard Candy. So many moons ago. Thank you for the awesome giveaway. applenot.jamie (AT)

  200. Karl says:

    I have Zoya Holly, which I was constantly voting for. Interested to see what St. George looks like live.

  201. Alisha says:

    My first emerald was Color Club Metamorphosis, but my favorite (that I own) is CG Four Leaf Clover. For me the whole competition was between that and St. George. Love, love, love these shades!!

  202. Tara says:

    One of the first emerald green polishes I bought when I started getting really into nail polish was China Glaze Emerald sparkle.

  203. Bogi A. says:

    I don’t have emerald green nail polish, but it’s really nice!:)

  204. MelodyJ says:

    China Glaze Emerald Sparkle. I wish they would release this shade.

  205. Marta K says:

    I never owned a green polish because I haven’t find one shade that I really like! :P

  206. Lulu says:

  213. Rachel D says:

    The first emerald green polish I bought was a Wet n Wild polish (one of the old ones with white caps) when I was in sixth grade– more than 15 years ago!

  214. Jane Cole says:

    Wow, the first one? I’m not sure I remember. I believe it was a Pure Ice polish, though I don’t remember the name. Thanks for the fab giveaway!

  215. Mi chiamano Mimi says:

    The first emerald shade I owned is Zoya Holly. Fell in love! Thanks for the contest!

  216. Katy says:

    My first emerald-ish polish was Sinful Colors Daisy the Pig, or at least I swear that’s what the green was. That may have been the first green polish I found back in the day. Years later I got China Glaze Four Leaf Clover based on the review from THIS site, and I’m a little butthurt it didn’t get farther in the competition.

  217. Sherri K (Curlilocks) says:

    I won a mini of Color Club Ho-Ho-Holly, that’s my first emerald.

    Revlon Streetwear Toad

  224. Michelle says:

    Mine was color club ho ho holly!

  225. Kellie says:

    The first one I bought was probably Revlon Top Speed Emerald. Thanks for the opportunity and the best of luck to all.

  226. Chris says:

    It was Jane Emerald City nail polish. $3 at CVS back in 1998. I wish I has kept my Jane polishes.

  227. Britty says:

    Sadly, my first emerald green was some cheapie I can’t even remember.

  228. alexis says:

    china glaze emerald sparkle :)

  229. Cathy M says:

    China Glaze Starboard

  230. Marilena Kat says:

  232. Tahira Malik says:

    first emerald was essie “going incognito”…not quite a true emerald, but gets the job done! :)

  233. ash says:

    interesting winner, not sure I agree, but I’ve never seen st. george in person

  234. Annie Suzie says:

    There weren’t really emeralds in those days,haha but they were, Spangle: Emerald base polish and OPI: Jasper Jade, very very old polishes!

    I would be over the moon to win a England Saint George

  235. Denise F says:

    I don’t have any greens actually :(

  236. mitch fj says:

    ulta envy is the closest thing i had to emerald green.

    Whenever I’m looking for green Nail polishes I’m ending up looking through your wonderful collection. Love your site. Love the Giveaway. Thank you for that.


    • Akima says:

      And because I almost forgot. My first emerald green polish is here today… Aragon tomorrow suede. Wasn’t able to get it at first but fortunately got it last October and love it since.

  242. Natashakat says:

    essie going incognito!

  243. Ariane says:

    China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald was my first emerald green!

  244. Sarah says:

    My first emerald polish was Sally Hansen’s Emerald City. It was love at first sight and I still remember the cashier giving me a judgemental look and telling me that it was a touch too early for Xmas colors.

  245. Toothfairy says:

    I’m afraid I can’t really remember, I think it was gifted with a magasine, haha!

  246. Annie Suzie says:

    Another old one is Color Club, Fly with me. Good luck all. What a fantabulous giveaway!

  247. Leissa says:

    My first emerald polish was a Nina Ultra Pro back in the late 90′s (I don’t remember the name, if it had one!). It was a dark green and shimmery and I wore the heck out of it. I don’t know what happened to it, sadly…might’ve been a casualty of the great polish purge in which I stupidly got rid of a ton of great polishes :(

  248. Carol says:

    I think my first emerald green polish that I ever owned was Zoya Ivanka. I’ve had several greens over the years, but I think this was the first one that really fell into the emerald grouping, versus a Hunter or Tourmaline.

  249. Ashley says:

    I honestly can’t remember the brand. It might’ve been an Avon, or some cheap drugstore polish. It had a slight gold shimmer to it, if I’m remembering correctly. I’ve actually never worn much emerald green, on my nails or otherwise.

  250. Heather says:

    I love Emerald polishes my first was Sinful Colors San Francisco

  251. Meg says:

    Butter London’s Henley Regatta

  252. Conri says:

    St. Patty’s Clove. Perhaps not emerald, but it was a beautiful shade of mellow green.

  253. Pamela says:

    China Glaze Glittering Garland was my first emerald green. Awesome prettiness.

  254. Allison says:

    This polish, A England’s Saint George is the first Emerald shade polish I have ever owned! It’s soooo dang Beautiful! SO happy it won polish of the year, cause it’s total eye candy :-D Thank You for doing such an awesome giveaway!!!

  256. Nikki says:

  257. Caitlin says:

    My first emerald green was a cheap Savvy polish

  258. mntrinemo says:

    Essie Pretty Edgy was my first emerald green polish.

    I was also China Glaze Glittering Garland. That was my first ever Xmas collection that I went crazy on, so I guess that explains it! thanks for the chance~!
