Nailed It: Show Your Best Green For Mental Health Awareness Month With “Tilda” by ZOYA + Help Me Raise Funds for NAMI Walks NYC!

ZOYA “Tilda”

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Having friends and family members that suffer from mental illness, and having dealt with anxiety and depression on my own, mental health awareness is an initiative that is very close to my heart. To show my support for the cause, I decided to paint my nails this lush shade of leafy green in “Tilda” by ZOYA as green is the color of mental health awareness, as pink is the color of breast cancer awareness.

The nail polish itself is a creme that is somewhere between a lime green and a fresh leaf or grass green. To achieve the look in the photos, we used a base coat, two coats of polish, and a top coat. The polish’s formula is a bit thicker than others, so application may look a little messy. Not to fret, the formula dries smoothly. My lovely cousin/newly-crowned manicurist Ashley painted my nails and encouraged the green as we will be walking a 5K with NAMIWalks NYC this coming weekend to raise vital funds for families and individuals living with mental illness. 

Please support us if you can! Any donation counts. You can check out my Fundraising Page here to donate.
