The question is: Which is uglier? 

In small doses I think the Puke Green could work as an accent color; for example as pillows, picture frames or an ashtray in a non-smoking house.  

Meanwhile, Reptile Green--sponged on--never works.  Therefore I've decided: our formerly Reptile Green color is uglier!

What do you think?
