Challenge: Day 4 - Green Nails

Hi ladies! We're back for Day 4 which brings us to Green Nails! For today's mani I started out with 3 coats of Catrice - Sold Out Forever (2nd Edition) as my base then using striping tape, sectioned off my nails into diamonds. To fill the diamonds, I used; China Glaze - Laser Lime, Essie - Trophy Wife & Da Bush, Zoya - Zuza, OPI - Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow (Suede), Essence - Viva La Green and BarryM - Spring Green *phew*. I then topped it off with a coat of MASH Nails Matte Top Coat*.

You'll have to excuse the sorry looking cuticles, no matter what I try to do whether it's moisturising, trimming, oiling, the little bits of skin that polish loves to cling to, just won't disappear! Also, I can never get the removal process of striping tape perfect, I always manage to pull a little bit of polish away with me! How do you like my Day 4 mani?

  1. Woah! This must have been really time consuming! Beautiful!

    1. Thank you! <3
      & not really, the hardest part was trying to get the striping tape in the right places, once they were on it was pretty fast :)

    2. I would have fought with the striping tape! haha! You did a beautiful job!

  2. This is very pretty. I love all the colors you used together.

  3. Striping tape always gives me cramps in my hands when I'm using it, it's so delicate lol.

    I love the way this looks though! I used zoya zuza for the green theme in a similar way for my mani... it's such a great green!

  4. That gotta need a lot of patience great job

  5. Very cute! http://nail-artbyanna.blogspot.com
