My Pretty Zombie’s Anthrax

Purple with green has been done quite a lot in nail polishes, but I don't see it as often in eyeshadows.

This is a very soft violet, good for a “darker” color in pastel or spring-bright looks without dominating the lid. The green complementary duotone shimmer is sparse, but it's not invisible. It works out nicely, because the weight of the green shimmer is nearly equivalent to the weight of the underlying violet shade. This match works very nicely, and the color can be worn with warm or cool shades - though it tends to look better with cool-warms like cabernet- or magenta-leaning reds, than warmer coral-ish tones.
