There are plenty of forest-green nail polishes out there (and I really love them!), but sometimes you want something a little different. China Glaze Peace On Earth is a good kind of different.
This beautiful shimmery olive green has an antique feel that’s quite decadent. The color is neutral, so even if you’re not ready to rock Kermit-the-Frog green polish, this is a great entry-level green to try.
What I like a lot about China Glaze Peace On Earth is that it catches the light and seems to be lit from within because of its light center and darker edges.
Take a look at my swatches, and you’ll understand why I’m so excited to have this color in my nail-polish collection.

China Glaze Peace On Earth Review
China Glaze Peace On Earth is one of those real bargain polishes that you can’t believe was so cheap yet looks so rich. The olive-green shimmer steals the spotlight and does it in such a tasteful, sophisticated way. It doesn’t scream in your face like, say, China Glaze Pool Party, but it definitely makes a memorable statement.
And unlike other greens like mint greens and primary greens, China Glaze Peace On Earth is easy-to-wear. Even if you tend to shy away from greens or non-traditional nail-polish colors, I urge you to give this one a shot. You’ll be pleasantly surprised. It works just like a neutral yet has a pop of personality.
If you’re a green lover already, this is a must-have item.
The formula was pretty impressive – it was opaque in a single coat! But I slicked on 2 coats for good measure. When you first apply this, you’ll see some major brushstrokes and think it looks terrible. But give it time. When it dries and after you put on a top coat, the brushstrokes become much less noticeable. (But if you’re annoyed by having any brushstrokes, this isn’t for you – you’ll see a few.) It doesn’t both me because it’s minimal.
This is what I wore under and over the nail polish:
- 1 coat of Nail Tek Foundation III (Ridge-filling Base Coat)
- 1 coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
Final Verdict: 9/10
For the awesome color, the smooth application, and the can’t-beat-it price, I suggest you run, don’t walk, to get China Glaze Peace On Earth nail polish! It’s so beautiful that you’ll catch yourself staring at your nails often!
