Every green lover needs to own OPI Green on the Runway from the Coca-Cola Collection that I did a Quick Look post on before.
Yes, it appears like this deep, rich, forest green initially, but when you wear it, as you move your hands and look at your nails at different angles, you’ll see a reddish-based brown come to the party!
I love this duochrome! *Swoons*
Don’t solely judge this polish based on the photo on the left. (Be sure to look at the others later on in this post, so you can enjoy the magic that is this amazing duochrome!)
The whole time I wore this (actually, it’s still on my nails as this blog post will be live!), I kept thinking of The Wicked Witch of the West every time I looked down at my nails. I think that’s so cool how it’s such a ‘wicked’ nail polish.
OPI doesn’t put out too many green nail polishes, unfortunately, so when they came out with this one, which has a strong duochrome, I was so ecstatic!
P.S. Remember, there’s still time to enter my OPI Nordic Collection + OPI Wipes worldwide giveaway (ends August 6) and my Pretty Serious Swatch And Learn autographed bottle worldwide giveaway with 4 winners (ends August 15)!

OPI Green on the Runway Review
Ooohhh, just look at how rich and strong the green base of Green on the Runway by OPI is! I am really swooning because I’m a green lover, yes, but I also especially have a thing for strong greens!
When you first paint your nails with it, it looks gorgeous as-is, but then you’ll carry on your day and notice that, hey, at certain angles, a reddish brown makes a magical appearance like Glinda the Good Witch of the North! (But its colour resembles more of The Wicked Witch of the West!) 😉
I love how this is a strong duochrome because it’s pretty unique for OPI to make a green-based one. Woo hoo! Please make MORE greens, OPI!
Green on the Runway by OPI has an obvious shimmery duochrome finish that I know you’ll enjoy, too. It always looks lively on your nails, never flat or boring!
Application & Formula
Painting with this one was a joy because the coverage was wonderful – I only needed two coats to achieve full opacity, and I didn’t feel the need to use a third, because the duochrome was already strong enough.
Final Verdict: 10/10
Green on the Runway by OPI deserves a really high score, and I gave it the highest one because I love everything about it, and I’m so happy to see OPI put out a cool green that shifts to a fun reddish brown! It has a great formula, and the shimmer in the finish brings it to life on your nails! 🙂
Are you also a green fiend? How many greens by OPI do you own? What’s your favourite green nail polish by OPI?
Lovely swatches. Not a big fan of greens but this one looks lovely on your nails.
Even though we don’t share the same love for green nail polishes, I’m happy to see that you still support me. Thanks for leaving your comment and for visiting my blog! 🙂
Very pretty color. Not your usual shade of green is it? It’s got that reddish-brown shimmer to it. I’ll have to check this one out. Thanks as always for sharing with us! 🙂
No, it’s very rich, and the duochrome shift makes it more interesting to look at when viewing at different angles. 🙂
This was the first one I put in my basket when shopping OPI polishes… I LOVE IT!!!
I passed on this since I have several green duochromes and my Ulta got hardly any of this collection in, but now I’m thinking might have to Amazon or eBay it. The brown in your nail-angled shots is pretty cool!
Good luck tracking it down! The combination of brown with green makes it look really rich! 🙂 Hope you love it in person!
LOVE it 🙂 Lovely polish for the fall season too!
For me, this shade is a must-have. LOVE rich greens like this!
Pretty green! Not sure how I feel about the coke-brown angle, but the green is pretty. ^_^

The brownish duochrome is subtle, so it doesn’t overwhelm the green. Hope you like it if you see it in person!
This is one of my favourites as well – I cannot wait to rock this for fall!
Awesome! I know you’ll love it. ROCK IT!
have to say this is not a color I would enjoy using
That’s okay. Green definitely isn’t for every nailphile. It just happens to be the colour I feel most comfortable wearing! 🙂
I NEED this! I had a nail polish very similar to this from Cover Girl years ago. I forgot what the color was actually called, but I always called it chocolate mint. It was probably one of my top 5 favorite nail polishes ever. Then for this to be made by OPI? That’s even better! 🙂
Oh, interesting! I don’t follow Cover Girl’s nail polishes much, but that’s really exciting to hear that they put out a similar green!
I own this but haven’t worn it yes because I’m waiting for fall to slowly come in. I’m not a huge fan of green (my polish collection might say otherwise), but I had to have this beauty! It was the one color from that collection that I wanted more than any other.
You will adore it! It’s so rich and fun to wear! ENJOY!
I am on a green kick and this is another must-have. I love duochromes and I love green!
Definitely – you can’t go wrong with this green! It’s love at first sight! 🙂
This is soooo pretty. I super love the color and the shimmery duochrome finish. I am so excited to try this out.
You’ll love it! 🙂
I bought this colour recently and I love it, I had loads of comments about it, all positive because of the duo tone colour.
Yes, this green took my breath away. I love it so much! 🙂 Glad that you’ve been enjoying it, too!
I think it’s a great color and I will buy it.

Hey Lacky Corner!
It’s a must-have green, in my opinion! 🙂 Then again, I’m a green lover!
Just ordered this today!!! I will be rocking it for sure.
This one had me swooning from the promo picture to when I saw it in the bottle to when I finally wore it. A total must-have for green lovers!
