A to Z Challenge: Writing Colors - Lime vs. Lime Green

Welcome back to the A to Z Challenge!

This year, I am providing different colors for descriptive purposes in writing using the website Color-ize to look at an alphabetical list of colors that we can use instead of using the same basic colors we know off the top of our heads. One color can come in so many shades, so why not take a look at them? :) We are currently looking at Shades of Green.

Today, there is a battle between Lime and Lime Green.

This is Lime Green.

And this is Lime.

Can you spot the difference? Lime is a little more electric, whereas lime green (which now looks weird) is more like the skin of a lime. They're also very close to yesterday's Kelly, but the subtleties are there. Lime (or lime green) usually gets put on a character with a lot of personality to show that they're an energetic person, and it's easy to see why. It comes off as a loud color.

What do you think?


  1. Lime is a little too loud for me, but lime green looks nice and fresh :) I can imagine a character with this eye color...

  2. I like both of them. Green's my favorite color, any shade. :)

  3. I get it--the lime green does look more like an actual lime. I could not pull of either of these colors!

  4. I always thought lime green was more vibrant. Lime is prettier! But that's okay because I say neon green is my favorite color. ;)

  5. I would definitely go with the Lime green... or actually... I would keep the lime for me, stick it in a Corona and then either green would work :)
