For my next unconventional spring green I’ve chosen Orly It’s Not Rocket Science (Cosmic FX, Fall 2010), a chartreuse-olive microglitter:
Picture taken in sunlight. This applied well but due to the slightly sheer nature of microglitter formulas I needed three coats for full, even coverage. The tone of green changes depending on the light. In bright light the shade of green looks springier and lighter, more chartreuse-y and radioactive-like. But in lower lighting conditions, it looks darker, with a more mossy, swampy olive tone. When looked at at a certain angle you can also see teal at the very edges, but this is only a very subtle, slight duochrome effect. I absolutely love this color in this finish! With these really dense microglitters it really seems like each glitter particle is so defined! It’s wonderfully sparkly. It took me a while to finally haul the polishes from this collection but after trying this first one I can’t wait to use the rest! I paired this with Sephora by OPI Miss Bossy Pants on my toes.
