pickled ginger

This bright blend of coral hues recalls the tangy, sweet and spicy flavor of pickled ginger. It’s a little bit pink, a little bit red, a little bit copper and a whole lot of fun. the blend of shades allows the look to fade gracefully so it will look great from the day you get it through weeks of washing, sweating and sun exposure. Get the formulas for this beautiful blend in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
