I'm feeling so organised this week having actually done nail art with time to spare for this weeks Pick n Mix challenge. Here's hoping I can keep this up!
This week the two prompts were perfect for combining, but I firstly want to show you the plain swatch of the polish I used as the base/accent of my mani because it's fantastic.
The polish is a murky dark green jelly base overflowing with a complete rainbow of tiny flakies that are smooth and easy to apply. Primarily they flash pink, lilac or blue, but you'll see so much more. I did three thin coats for opacity and maximum flakies.
Flakies and green means a happy Jae, and executed this well means a lot of oohs and aahs whenever any kind of light hit my nails. I wasn't quite ready to remove it when it came time to do my camo nails so I just went with some camo colour blocking instead!
I wasn't much looking forward to camo nails - it's so very late 90's mid-teen fashion for me. Half a nail was more than enough.
For a design I don't like it bums me out that it's SO easy to do. Paint your base, then use a dotting tool to blob some messy short lines of colour on, layering them a little as you go. I can't imagine being able to mess this up.
I taped off half my nail before doig the design then once I was done added a black stripe for a bit of definition. The other colours I used are Essence Cafe Ole and The Green and The Grunge, Essie School of Hard Rocks and China Glaze Street Chic.
