OPI’s Fall and Winter collection for 2016 has a Washington DC theme. Really it’s a rather odd theme with some even stranger shade names but I digress. “Suzie -The First Lady of Nails” (heretofore referred to as First Lady of Nails because ain’t nobody got time for that) is a lovely olive green shade. The delightful thing about this tone of green is that it’s really a neutral. It isn’t wild, it isn’t crazy, it doesn’t clash with most other shades, but it’s still a little weird. I highly recommend!
This manicure is two coats of First Lady of Nails applied over OPI Nail Envy and topped with Seche Vite quick dry top coat. Accent nail is a base of OPI My Vampire Is Buff with dots in Essie Leggy Legend and Penny Talk.
First Lady of Nails applied easily and was opaque in two coats. It wore for a solid week for me but most of my manicures do so it isn’t anything remarkable.
Here are a couple of comparison photos with some other stellar green nail polishes:

Oh this is gorgeous. You’re right, this green registers as a neutral – it doesn’t scream GREEN!
And now, I want Essie Armed and Ready… if I don’t ready own it.
I would venture so far as to say that you probably do need Armed and Ready in your arsenal. It’s even more of a neutral and I think it’s one of those shades that you would really enjoy.
Beautiful! I’m on the fence with this one for myself – muted greens usually don’t play well on me.
Muted greens can definitely be tricky! It’s totally hit or miss for me. I’m the same way with muted purple. It can go horribly horribly wrong.
