Creative musings in bright colors

Green Tipped

Sometimes, I just can’t figure out what to do with a color. When I saw Illite, I was stunned. Such a pretty murky green! It looked like it had a subtle yellow and blue shift as well! On the nail though, it just fell flat for me.

Once I put together this nail art, I figured out what my inspiration had been…an almost identically colored green that I couldn’t figure out what to do with when I got it! Illite is almost the same color as Vespa, the textured pale green by Zoya. Go figure.

Shown here is two coats of Illite. It went on fine, but I just don’t find it flattering on me. It has a bit more inner shine to it than the other colors in this collection, but still has a true matte finish.

I just ended up covering the polish in gold glitter (OPI – I Found A Pot of Gold) and placing the gold sequins from the OPI polish on my accent nail. The tip is Ivanka by Zoya. I matted the whole thing…and yah. Not my best work.

If you want to give this interesting green a go (especially if your skin tone is not as red as mine!) you can purchase Illite here for $6.75. The rest of the collection can be found here. And don’t forget, free US shipping!
