Salon Perfect Ivy League

Hi, you guys! Hope you had a great weekend, and your week is off to a good start. My weekend was incredibly lazy. It's been rainy and gloomy and dark, so I haven't felt like doing much at all. I need to move somewhere sunnier lol. :D

Today, I'm going to continue with another color from the Salon Perfect First Look Fall Collection. Ivy League is a dark mossy green with fine olive green shimmers in a metallic finish.






With Salon Perfect Matte Fx Top Coat

It's one of those naturesque colors that makes me think of tall mature trees in a forest with the canopy shielding out most of the sunlight. This is quite dark on the nails; not yet black, but it's getting close for me. The shimmers are subdued by the dark base and show up best under direct light. The formula is good for the most part. It's a little on the thinner side, but still easy and smooth to apply, and two coats gets the job done.

You can find Ivy League exclusively at Walmart stores for a retail price of $3.98 for 0.5 fl oz.

  3. This is beautiful, but I agree, almost a bit too black for me. I still quite like it!

  4. Lovely shade. I don't know if I like it better shiny or matte.

  8. This screams "fall"! What a shade! Shame that it has to lean so far into the black...but pretty nonetheless.

  10. This is pretty! It reminds me of Zoya Suvi, which I just gave to my little sis and have been kind of regretting, lol. It's been stormy for the last few days here, too, but I'm rather enjoying it this year, which is odd... I miss loving the heat.

    1. Hehe it's sweet that you gave your Suvi to your sister. I'm glad you're enjoying the weather. I just wish it wasn't so dark, you know? I don't mind storm or rain or cold, but why is it so dark here? Grrr. *whines* lol. :D

  14. Wow, that's an unexpected gem! Love the dark mossy green colour! It's gorgeous! I think it would be great to wear during times when we'd want dark blackish nail colour but something a little more than just black/dark! :D Beautiful!
