#31DC2013, Color Club, Essie, freehand, Milani, Nail Art, Serum No 5, stamping
I sat down to start today’s prompt feeling very unmotivated. Green never looks good on me and I do not know how to make it look good. I stared at all my green polishes for a good few minutes before it dawned on me that I had just settled down with a bowl of Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream.
I then realized I had all the right colors for a Mint-inspired manicure!
I started with two coats of Color Club “Twiggie” on my index, middle, and ring finger.
I used two coats of Milani “Mint Chip” (hah…) on my pinky finger.
I used a small brush to apply strokes of butter London “Knackered” on my ring finger before adding a layer of Serum No5 “Happy Special Day”. Unfortunately, the butter London polish was so sheer it did not show up under the sprinkles top coat.
I applied small brush strokes of Essie “Blanc” to my index, middle and ring finger to mimic mint chip ice cream.
I quickly applied two coats of Milani “Sprinkles” to my index and middle finger; and one coat of Seche Vite to my ring finger. I wanted to blur any sharp lines.
Once my ring finger dried I used Bundle Monster plate “BM-307” and Milani “Quick Teal” to stamp a cupcake!
I applied a very light coat of Sprinkles on my ring finger to seal the look.
I am not a fan of the base colors but I really like green mint ice cream so I went for it!
