ibd Green Monster & Jade Dynasty Swatches

I started going through my gel polish stash, and realized that I have a whole bunch of colors that I haven’t swatched yet!  I’m going to start sprinkling in some of the swatches as I can.  I have lots of good dark colors for fall and winter, so the timing is perfect.  Today I have two green shades from ibd Just Gel Polish.  I’m often asked for recommendations of affordable gel polish brands, and ibd is one that’s always at the top of my list.  Many of the ibd colors can be found on Amazon.com in the $7-8 range, which is super affordable.  And the quality of these polishes is fantastic!

This is ibd Green Monster, a really great shade of dark green.  It’s not a pure green and seems to have some slight blue or grey-ish tones that really warm it up.  It was almost opaque in two coats, but I applied three for best coverage.

ibd Just Gel Polish - Green Monster Jade Dynasty is a nice, soft shade of jade green.  This shade is a bit muted and is also slightly sheer.  You can see some visible nail line after three coats, which I’m not a huge fan of.  But the color is really pretty and is also great for fall.

    Thanks, Andrea! I agree; I think Green Monster is a great autumn color! Add a deep burnt sienna (I still remember that color from the Crayola box!) accent nail and…:-)

    I love both colors(green girl here!). I keep my nails a tad longer than you, and I love shades that show my nail line. Why do you not?

    Hey! The Green Monster colour is so pretty and it looks GREAT on you!
    I got a small question for you. I was wondering if ibd Just Gel is 3-free or not? I did some research but I can’t seem to find any information about that?
