On a green mirror the tint on the inside is green as well but this one, as you can tell, looks a bit purple from the angle we took the picture atleast which shows the mirror seems to have some effect on the inside tint. When you put them on you’ll see like a regular g15 but there is a different tint looking at it from the outside.
