31DC2013: Day 4 Green

Press Sample Purchased by Me

Gooooood Morning!

It is only day 4 of the 31 Day Challenge, but I am already having so much fun coming up with these. Ithink today's nails are my favourite yet early in the game.

Green is one of those colours that I really didn't like at all on my nails when Ifirst started blogging. For some reason Icould't get behind it. As I've grown and blogged and done my nails more that opinion has completely changed! Green is now one of my favourite colours to wear on my nails. Iwas brainstorming what to do and decided that since Ijust graduated from a Geography degree a 'think green' manicure was in order!



Istarted off with 2 coats of Cult Nails Tempest on all of my nails. Then Istarted to create the trunk of the tree in the middle of my middle and ring nails using Revlon Hot For Chocolate. Idid two branches coming out and then decided to get to work on my leaves. For all the leaves I just freehanded on some patterns using China Glaze Def Defying, the lightest green, China Glaze GaGa For Green the medium green and Revlon Posh the darkest green. On my index nail Iincluded the recycle symbol using Posh as my background and then freehanding the arrows inside the circle.



On my thumb I decided to write think green doing a gradient in the letters with the three greens Iwas using. Iabsolutely love the combination of greens and leaves here. Ireally don't want to take them off my nails! :D



Ilove how abstract the leaves look while still being cohesive and I'm super stoked on the think green message!

  3. These are really cute. I used to hate green and now it's my favorite color! But the more I get into my art, the more I find myself appreciating a wider range of colors. While I'm still not a fan of yellow or orange, I can even appreciate those sometimes. haha

    The nails are adorable. I love the doodle-y look. And the "think green" gradient looks cool. Nice to see so many people supporting causes here lately!
