Ever since watching Katie Carson of Royalty Soaps use this color in a number of her gorgeous creations, I've been drooling over this mica! Being on a budget though, I always found one excuse after another to not purchase it, my main one being that maybe I already owned micas that were similar. I finally went for it though, and let me just start by saying that this beautiful shade of green is like NO OTHER in my mica collection!! It's totally unique and completely gorgeous! I used it right away in a CP batch, and even pairing it with NS's "Lime Appeal" and "Hello Spring" micas, I can distinctly see which beautiful swirls of green are which mica ("New Leaf" is the lightest shade of green in the pic)! It's a bright, happy shade of springtime green with soft yellow undertones that stands apart, and accentuates other colors beautifully! In my recipe, this mica did temporarily look a tad pea-green when first incorporated in my soap batter, but once saponification was complete, it returned to its original & stunning shade! I regret not buying this mica sooner, but it's a color I'll definitely keep in my mica collection for good!
