At the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, there are several large conservatories (they look like giant domes) that are climate controlled so that you can enjoy plants from different regions that normally wouldn't survive in NYC. The Desert Pavilion (AKA Cactus House) is full of really neat cacti and flowers that look nothing like that baby cactus in a flower pot on your coworker's desk.
There is nothing prickly about this polish - Essie Da Bush is a creamy green toned grey. I expected a dusty green polish along the lines of Essie Sew Psyched, and instead was stunned by how subtle the green is. This shade reminded me of some of the very pale succulents I saw in the cactus house.
Shortly after moving to NYC, we decided to paint one wall in our apartment grey. Have you ever gone grey paint searching? It's really much hard than it seems! We stuck our swatches up on the wall and suddenly the colors we thought were very middle-of-the-road grey transformed into greens, blues, and purples. Da Bush reminds me of a paint swatch we picked up...in low light, the color is almost undetectable but then like a chameleon, the intensity of green shifts and is affected by surrounding colors.
Visit the Desert Pavilion at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden at 900 Washington Ave in Brooklyn.
