#31DC2013- Green Nails


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.
