#MTVnailChallenge: 4. Green & Flowers

Hello there lovelies! Is anyone else also having such awesome weather at the moment? It is cloudy but very warm here in Pretoria and man, I wish it would just rain! I really, REALLY like rain! The sound, the smell, the's awesome!

Anyhoo, nails to show and a #MTVnailChallenge to keep up with!

4. Green & Flowers

I would be lying if I say this was an easy topic! Okay, it was an easy topic but I really struggled
with ideas for some reason. I'm not a big flower person but I love green so I badly wanted to nail this topic! This was my third and easiest attempt but I'm genuinely happy with the results!

Nail Polishes used:

  • WOW Nail Polish #393
  • China Glaze Starboard
  • OPI Fresh Frog Of Bel Air

Tools/Other Used:

  • Dotting Tool
  • Silver Studs

I started by laying down 2 thickish coats of China Glaze Starboard on my thumb, middle and ring finger and 2 coats of  WOW Nail Polish #393 on my pinky and index finger. When this was dry, I went in with my dotting tool and WOW Nail Polish #393 and made easy little flower shapes on my ring, middle and thumb nail. In the middle of the flowers I just put a small blob of clear thickish nail polish and placed the studs into place. Too round everything off, I added a coat of OPI Fresh Frog Of Bel Air on my index finger and pinky.

Like I said, I was quite chuffed with the results! It feels very “me”. Plus I got to add studs! STUDS! So yes, I struggled quite a bit but it was worth it. Oh, and random much, but how awesome is OPI Fresh Frog Of Bel Air's name??
