MoYou London Rainbow Challenge - Thursday: Green

That's it - over half way through, only 3 more manicures to go, whose excited! I'm going to plan ahead for my last 3 manicures, as I am terrible for not knowing what I'm going to do until I sit at my nail station.

I looked through everyone's designs under the #MoYou20K hashtag and there is some beautiful green designs.  I went back to my plates and had a look when something on Fairytale 02 caught my eye.  Green to me means Irish I suppose, so I have done this classy irish fuelled manicure, that, if I'm honest, would be great for St.Patricks day. 


Polishes Used:
Sinful Colors - Pistache (Pictured)
Sinful Colors - Last Chance
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Lickety-Split Lime
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - In Record Lime
Seche Vite

MoYou Plate(s) Used:
Fairytale Plate 02


I started off by painting all of my nails with Pistache.  Once that was dry, I used the 4 leaf clover design on the bottom left of Fairytale Plate 02 and stamped with Lickety-Split Lime (the lighter green).  Once that was dry, I used the same design and stamped with In Record Lime on top (the darker green).  


Once everything was completely dry, I used my hole reinforcements to mark out the line of a French Tip.  I then filled in my French Tip with Last Chance - a very deep and dark green.  I know it can look like black in the pictures, but its a really dark green.  Its all topped off with a coat of Seche Vite.


I had went back in on this manicure and added caviar along my smile line for the French Tip, but it actually looked really silly.  Sometimes - LESS IS MORE! :-)
