Jade is the New Black

Name: Jade is the New Black

Collection: Hong Kong Collection

Colour: Deep Jade Green

Coats: 2

Pros: A very pretty shade of green that is vibrant and fresh, in no way sickly like some greens. It goes on opaque in two coats with a perfect jade crème finish. This shade is great for any skin tone which is hard to do with green.

Cons: Not much bad to say about this other than the chips I experienced at the tips of the nails. This can easily be solved with a top coat though!

Similar Shades: “Don’t Mess with OPI” from the Texas collection is almost identical, but iIt seems that "Jade is the New Black" has more teal undertones. If you want a more mint green then try “Mermaid’s Tears” from the Pirates Collection, if you can still get your hands on it that is.


  1. Nice dark green. I was just looking for a green for my next pedicure.

  2. I agree, this colour is great for a pedi!

  3. This was my favourite shade from the Hong Kong Collection :) Such a great staple!

  4. Love this color! Great for fall!!!
