As the title says really. Not sure if they are green or blue as I am terrible with colours. Thanks

Why? I really don't get these posts. What does it matter?

Next we'll have a "what size do I look" or "what do you weigh if you're 2 foot tall and a size 40".

Because my sister has put a photo of my niece on Facebook saying she doesn't know where niece gets her blue eyes from. I said well mine are blue so it could be our side and she said they are green. My other sister agreed with her.

But you have a greenish ring around your pupil so maybe when they dilate the green bit looks more obvious.

I have grey eyes and can't see that yours are anything other than just straight up blue OP, by comparison. No green in them either but I suppose it could be the photo.

As an aside whenever I declare I have grey eyes I cringe. I know I sound like one of those sad sacks desperate to be a special case. I'm not, they're not even nice to look at and are very dull and dark looking, like a dolphin skin or some grotty english sea. Your eyes are a pretty blue OP.

Eye colour is determined by dominant and recessive genes in the family DNA of both parents, sadly not really a case of 'who' she got them from so much as which dominant code won out in the DNA combo from her two parents and their own set of DNA.

Blue/grey - I can't see any green.

I would not listen to your family about eye colour based on my own family’s weirdness. My mother INSISTS I have grey eyes. My eyes are hazel - army green/brown to be specific. It’s very weird.
My sister insists my nephews eyes are blue, which they were when he was a toddler, then they went greyish (seriously) but they’be ended up green. He’s only 7 and knows they are green but to say they are blue if she is in earshot. I’ve seen him change his answer halfway through on spotting her presence.

Your sisters probably decided on your eye colour in their heads 30 years ago and actually have not looked at your eyes properly since
