Collection: Zoya 2014 Summer, Tickled
Yesterday I posted a green by China Glaze that I described as a “praying mantis green”. Turns out my polish for today is actually described by Zoya as a “mantis green”, as well!
Tilda differs quite a lot from China Glaze Shore Enuff, however. I suppose there are many varying shades of mantis! Some are even kind of brown, which this polish most certainly isn’t. Where Shore Enuff has more of a minty blue tone to it, Tilda isn’t really pastel-ish and has a lusher, grassy yellow tone.
Now, this polish isn’t really what I think of when I see the name Tilda. (I think of Tilda Swinton and cold, white and grey shades. Or, perhaps, orange. Swinton is fantastic in Snowpiercer, by the way.) I don’t really think of this:
But that’s what it is, and it’s really a wonderful green! I don’t especially love yellow greens on me, but Tilda isn’t overly so, and it’s such a creamy, luscious shade. Application was perfect with two coats.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
