The perfect metallic grass green: Zoya - Meg

Happy Friday everyone! I'm sorry I've been MIA lately but things have been suuuper busy and I've been traveling. I'm visiting family back home in Indiana for my little brother's high school graduation. My little bubby is graduating!! I'm so proud. *sniff sniff* I flew in on Tuesday and it has been go go go ever since. Between getting settled in, keeping score for my youngest sister's softball games (we won both games!), and cleaning house while prepping for the BBQ we're having... there has been little room to breathe!

One of the best things about being back home is being able to walk barefoot through the cool grass. I am in love with the abundance of green leafy things that grow without need of sprinklers, quite unlike the desert I call home. So, because I can't get enough green in my life I'm going to show y'all one of the Zoyas I picked up in the Earth Day Promo, Meg.







Lamplight:

Meg is an awesome grass green metallic/foil. Interestingly enough, the foil particles themselves are actually silver, giving Meg a cool undertone. In the bottle I was a little hesitant to wear this, I wasn't sure if I would really like it or not. I actually put off wearing it for just that reason nut as you can see, the results of an easy 2 coat application completely changed my mind. I love it! I got lots of compliments too. As it turns out, green is a great compliment to my fair ginger skin. lol














Fluorescent light:

Removal was fairly easy but not painless. The foil particles act/behave like microglitter so there's a little effort involved. Nothing like foiling or anything, it just took a little longer to take off using a little more elbow grease than usual. No staining whatsoever.















So, there you have it! My first post from the great Hoosier state. I've been very frustrated without having a way to blog when I'm away from my desktop but I got a shiny new iPad for my birthday and it turns out (if this post shows up correctly) that I've found the ideal method! Also I edited my photos with iPad apps! Please, let me know how this looks to you guys.

  2. Thank you, I liked this color a lot more than I'd expected! And thank you for your input on how the post looked, from my mobile browser my photos look smaller than I'd like. I need to compare the two views.
