PROS
  • Beautiful green and silver.
  • This looks like it would be perfect for holiday cards!
  • Shades well.
  • Relatively easy to clean.
CONS
  • Not waterproof.
OVERALL

This one... I have a hard time finding a true green that I really like, but this green is lovely, and with the shimmer on top? HOT DOG! Sorry. That was weird. I think it's beautiful. These are sort of novelty inks, in that you're probably not going to use them at work (or maybe?), so I can understand that not everyone will want them. I, however, enjoy fun and glittery inks.
