I picked up one of the new polishes from the Maybelline Color Show line after hearing some good things about the shade, Green With Envy, a creamy minty green. I hear these polishes are hit or miss in the quality department but this shade has seemed to be the fan favorite. The color is really pretty but nothing particularly special. Perhaps a bit of shimmer added to the minty green that we've seen over and over this season would have made it stand apart. In any event, the formula goes on nicely and pretty much opaque in two coats. Time will tell as to how it wears. I picked this up at Walgreens for $4.99. There are a variety of shades, some bright fun colors and metallics but also some toned down muted shades including a pretty dove grey. As for colors that are similar, Green With Envy doesn't have the blue that China Glaze For Audrey has, its more like a slightly mintier version of Essie Turquoise and Cacos. Will report back on details of longevity of wear!
