Ick Green

I feel drawn to the most drab, split pea, baby poo green nail polish colors. LOL

Like I HAVE to use them because #1) No one else seems to want to use them and #2) I have to prove that the color is really not ugly!

I love this color! ha ha  It’s like a murky chartreuse with a shimmer in the finish.  I pretty much nullified the shimmer with my dots though.  oh well Winking smile.

Ombré Vert

a/k/a  Money Tips.  haha.  Needed green in my life.  I’ve been thinking to attempt this for a while. 

Ombré
French derivation. meaning shaded. It is used in relation to textiles (a) as an adjective to describe fabrics with a dyed, printed, or woven design in which the colour is graduated from light to dark;

shaded or graduated in tone: said of a color

Do you realize how difficult it is to find five shades of the same color family that GRADUALLY move from light to dark??!?!?! Try it. -_-  Still easier than creating the shades myself though.

I have three other color families to attempt.  Smile

Crayola…..–ish

My nails wanted to make a statement.  Wanted to be “heard”.

So I pulled out bold and bright primary & a couple secondary colors in the loudest temperature I owned. And let them scream.

For some odd reason the blue base in the purple is so strong it’s difficult to differentiate it from the blue in the pictures.  If I can get a clear picture to show PURPLE instead of blue, I will post asap!

It’s basic…… Crayola.

blurry but captured the color
