You know, I hadn't planned on doing an Earth Day mani- in fact, I didn't even know it was Earth Day until I logged in today! Having green on my nails today was a fluke..I only swatched this color yesterday because the formula was so nice. Anyway, since there's a "built-in, no brainer" theme of the day, it would be silly not to take advantage of it.
Readers who have been with me for a while know how much I miss my gardens. I think it is fitting that I should have one on my nails this day. As always, pictures are clicakable for largest view.
I love how the light makes this jelly glow.
Weird shot of my index above....it looks like a bubble...actually all my nails look weird in that shot. I loved how the colors turned out though, so I included it in this post anyway.
All photos were taken in my lightbox, and surprisingly, the colors turned out quite accurate.
**Mani- 3 coats Ruby Kisses, Neon Green. Obviously not a neon- more like a grass green. It's a jelly, and has an amazing formula!
**2 coats Nfu-Oh #50 layered over RK. Although the base of #50 is a lavender, it did not change the green. I really liked this combination...it looked very much like the green and blue found on a globe of the Earth.
**All stamping colors are frankens, with the exception of Konad Special Polish, Wine Red.
**Konad plates- M21 & M66
**Fauxnad plates-A07, A13, H29 & P55 ...from chez-delaney
**1 coat Seche
Test stamping aside, my garden took me about an hour to complete.
This mani looks slightly different in real life. There is more depth than my pictures show. The Macro mode seems to isolate each element in this mani and brings them to the front. The garden seems busy in these pictures, especially when viewed at full size.
