31 Day Challenge, day 4: Green


Hi guys, time for some green nails! :-) This week I had a party for which I did simple, stunning, silver glitter nails to match my red dress. I used China Glaze Millenium and a coat of Silver Lining on top, also from China Glaze. I didn't have an idea for my forth challenge yet at the time, but when I saw the dense silver glitter sparkle on my fingertips I just couldn't wait to combine it with a bright green. So the next day I made these V-gaps with Barry M's Spring Green. I love, love, love the color. It's so vibrant! Almost like a neon. I didn't manage to capture its true color in the pictures though, where it looks a bit turquoise. In real life it's more like a Hulk-green, wild and strong. ^^ What do you think of today's green nails?

  5. Agh! I love! I've been trying to figure out how to get this tape mani to work for me. I did one where The main color went on first and then used 2 pieces of tape to create the triangle with the second color. I see you did the opposite of that. Seems to me like that would be easier. My triangles don't come out even. :)

    1. Actually I do it both ways, but I prefer the way you do it. It just depends on which color I'm wearing as my basecolor. In this case I happened to be wearing the silver glitter that I wanted to be the V-gaps, but otherwise I would've done it with two seperate pieces tape because it's easier that way. ^^ The tape attaches better to the round shape of my nails and also the layering polish won't seep under the tape so easily that way.
      I admit it can be hard to determine where the strips should go for an even triangle. Perhaps you could make a tiny dot on the basecolor with a toothpick so you'll know where the point of the V comes. I just came up with it now, but I should try that muself too, haha. Good luck!

  13. Some months ago, I participated of a challenge of this. Really fun, you know, but 31 manicures... it took a loooong time to me to accomplish it. This green polish is elegant and daring, I have something similar.
