Color Close-up - In honor of Saint Patrick's Day, Green!

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

Being mostly of Irish descent (Irish and French) I feel that the color green is genetically predisposed to look phenomenal on my skin. So I kinda hoard greens. For fun and in honor of St. Patty's day, I decided to swatch em' all out! (Pic heavy!)
