I did a quick google search, and it turns out that The Selfish Green is actually a debate on the future of the environment with prominent scientists including David Attenborough and Richard Dawkins. For some reason it never occurred to me that David Attenborough is actually a doctor/scientist - my childhood memory just remembers him as being that animal documentary guy with the incredible voice. The Selfish Green is also a play on the title of Dawkins' book, The Selfish Gene - so I'm not sure which one the polish is actually named after. Today, I have chosen to interpret it in the context of the selfishness that sometimes arises within certain people at Christmas time, as well as the green of jealousy of other people's far more awesome presents (and numerous other connotations like the grinch and whatnot).
NerdLacquer The Selfish Green is an olive green crelly with multi-sized silver and olive-gold hex glitter, green square glitter and shimmering duochrome blue-purple flecks. I had to give my bottle a good shake because all the glitter had sunken to the bottom, but after that I had no trouble getting the glitter on the nail. It needed 3 coats for full opacity, and only one coat of Seche Vite to make it perfectly smooth.

P.S. I have solved the lack of green polish dilemma by doing a massive shop of green Essies on Ozsale.
