I googled for swatches of this green and I found only 3 pics. Not much… I think the polish deserves more attention :) So here it is – Awakening, a spring green nail polish by Lumene:
The orginal Finnish name is Luonto herää, and it describes the color perfectly. Usually I’m not crazy about green nails, but I like Awakening for its coldness. The color reminds me of spring mornings, when there is a cool mist and the air is so clean and refreshing.
I don’t have anything similar to this green in my collection, but I made a comparison of green nail polishes anyway :D In the pic below from left to right we have:
- Essie Navigate Her – a well-known muted green shade
- ORLY Green Apple – not the best in the group in terms of application :(
- Lumene Awakening
- OPI Green-wich Village – a warm green that is good for summer months
- ORLY Fresh – invigorating, cheerful, and… fresh :)
On my nails I have 2 coats of Lumene Awakening over ORLY Nail Defense base, with a clear high gloss top. The flower is hand painted with black and white acrylic paints.
Thank you for looking! Have a great Sunday :)
