Out of Chanel’s F/W 11 collection came the most sought-after shade of the season: a green-meets-gold metallic named Peridot. The lacquer sold out almost immediately, and spawned a laundry list of almost-identical shades from OPI (Just Spotted The Lizard), Jessica (Iridescent Eye), China Glaze (Rare and Radiant), Ciate (Oil Slick), and more. Two years later metallic green is unexpectedly back in a big way. Everyone from Estee Lauder to Joe Fresh have released updated (and beautiful) metallic greens. Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Scangie 2.0 is an edgy army green, Jin Soon for Tibi’s Epidote is a deep forest shade, while Deborah Lippmann’s Laughin’ To The Bank borders on a rich jewel tone. All of these, and more, you’ll find in our slideshow.
