First, my apologies that my draft version of this posted first rather than the completed version. :(
Second, today's post is the 'I' in my Llama Nails weekly alphabet challenge.
Because of Zoya's holiday collection, Logan is getting a lot of attention, and rightfully so--it's a beautiful holiday green polish. But, it got me thinking about another Zoya green that I love, and that might be my favorite green, ever: Zoya Irene.
Irene is a pretty deep grass green with shimmers of lighter green and overtones of copper. Yes, I know that sounds fake--'overtones of copper'--but I'm not quite sure how to describe it. It's not quite a flash of copper, because the copper is always present, but subtle. It plays off the light and dark greens and creates a rich play of color that I can stare at for hours:

(INDIE ALERT!) on the accent nail; Penny!!! is a clear-based glitter with a ton of copper micro glitter and a moderate amount of copper hexes:
