Here’s my GREEN mani for Chalkboard Nails 31 Day Challenge! I painted my nails with two coats of Metallic Heels (gold) by Julie G and then hand-painted some green segments on the top and bottom of my nails.
The green theme for today was a great excuse to try my brand new mint polish from Five Below. It’s a nice light green color called Honeydew by Fresh Paint. I’ve been wanting a green like this forever. Many of my greens are darker or have a tinge of blue and look sorta aqua…. so I think this green is a perfect addition to my stash! Unfortunately, it’s not that great for nail art. I applied it with a detail brush and it seemed to have a chalky formula. It ended up looking goopy and brush-strokey. Live and learn! Next time I’ll use it as a base color instead of an accent color. I made sure to really slather on the seche vite to help smooth it out. 🙂 But still, it’s pretty and I like the effect of the gold strip shining in between the green. The two colors contrast and coordinate, all at the same time.
