Green NOTD


Yay! I found some pics today of a mani I haven't shown you! It was my first try at using painter's tape, and cutting the painter's tape with wacky craft scissors. I can not take credit for this genius idea. That came from The Hungry Asian.

I started with a base of NYX-Lime Sparkle. I used Kae's trick and cut the painter's tape cut into strips with a cool patterned edge with craft scissors. I put down the tape diagonally and painted half the nail dark green with Sinful Colors- San Francisco. I wanted to add cobras with plate M28 and white polish, but the white was not picking up well for some reason no matter what I did, and the green did, so I used green, but it didn't stand out very well. (Click for the enlarged pic. You can see the cobra better. It's on the ring finger)

Cool non the less!

  1. That's an insanely awesome manicure. Love it! Great idea Kae had. I love that NYX polish. Nice and glittery. I can't see the Konad part at all. I don't think anyway, hehe!

  2. Oh wow that looks fantastic! Thanks for the mention, your watermark makes the cobra harder to see but I see it, it's so adorable (can snakes be adorable?!). I like your zig zag scissors, made a cool funky line!
