OPI Stay Off the Lawn!! Review


Stay Off the Lawn!! by OPI is a rich green that is a total Comfort Colour in this nail enthusiast’s book because it’s easy to sport – not too loud or too dark that it appears black. I love how the green is always visible, even in dim lighting.

If you tend to be intimidated by bright greens, this is a good one to try because it’s more sophisticated and can pair easily with neutrals for a classier appearance, while still lending that ‘something extra’ to your look.

When I think of the green associated with recycling, this is exactly the shade that springs to mind.


With its simple creme finish, Stay Off the Lawn!! by OPI has all the makings of a classic polish, but the green takes to the stage and gets undivided attention without the bells and whistles of a more complicated finish.

As with most cremes, this one removes easily, which means you don’t have to scrub your poor paws raw at the end of its manicure life.

Application & Formula

Painting with OPI Stay Off the Lawn!! was dreamy because the formula is highly pigmented. One coat covered exceptionally well, but, out of habit, I applied two coats. (You won’t need more than this to achieve full opacity.)


Just like all the newer OPI nail colours, this one is no different in that it doesn’t contain Formaldehyde, Toluene, or DBP.


  • Gorgeous green
  • Creme finish is easy to apply & to remove
  • Highly pigmented formula
  • No Formaldehyde, Toluene or DBP


  • Not the craziest green out there, but this is a wonderful shade that you may find easier to sport (especially if you’re new to green nail polish)

Final Verdict: 9.5/10

I fell hard for OPI Stay Off the Lawn!! because the shade is an easygoing green that offers a sophisticated twist and a formula that’s a pleasure to paint with! The pigmented formula is a winner!

Do you wear green nail polish regularly, sport it for special occasions, or have yet to try it?

    Great color. Perfect for fall. I’m curious, how does it compare to Jade is the New Black from the Hong Kong Collection a few years back? Thanks for sharing! It looks great on you!

      Hey Melissa!

      Off the top of my head, I think that Stay Off the Lawn is a bit darker than Jade Is the New Black. (That was another great green!)
