Trend Alert: Deep Green Nails

This nail trend might make you green with envy — or it just might make your fingertips green. For the holiday season, Nars released this dark green nail polish. Called Zulu, it was on the cover of Sephora's holiday catalog — and it sold out almost immediately.

You can sign up for the waiting list or bid on Zulu on eBay (right now, a bottle is $26, with five days left to go). Or if you want to hop on the green nail trend—as Partysugar did last week—check out three options when you

I tried to find an exact match for Zulu, but this ain't the '90s, and green nail polish is hard to find. I did manage to find three greens that are in the general family, so take a look:

And if you have other suggestions, share 'em here!

No thank you. I'll never wear something just because it's a trend, and this is no exception. I prefer more classic shades.

i was looking for a green nail polish all over the place on saturday. there's a really pretty dark green from Anna Sui, color 915. But, obviously it wasn't there when i went. I tested the Zoya color, and it was a bit of a murky brown when i tried it. But the Nars Zulu is GORGEOUS.

Yeah...this one is totally lost on me. The Nars especially looks like it's hunter green...which reminds me of awful clothing and decor from the early nineties. I'm LOVING the navy and deep purple nails, but I'm absolutely going to say PASS on the green. I think years from now it'll look about as timeless in pictures as neon scrunchies.

My favorite is still OPI Jasper Jade. Can't get it anymore, can't find anything close!

I can't believe I was totally on top of this trend! I've been loving the green nails all week!

I would probably just layer a regular green nail polish over black nail polish. Much cheaper! But I'd love to try out a very dark green look...

About a month ago I was totally obsessed with getting forest green nail polish. I found an Anna Sui color on e-bay--it's the perfect shade and didn't cost nearly as much as the Nars would have...It looks so awesome!!
