Gorgeous Green Gradient!

So, today I’m gonna show you a mani that genuinely surprised me.
I’m not the biggest fan of the colour green. I mean, it’s alright and everything, but I’m not that bowled over by green. But I wanted to do something different, so I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried to come up with something green that I wouldn’t hate. Sometimes I like to challenge myself. And I came up with this, and I actually absolutely love it!!

I started with a neon green base coat, and hated it. So I thought I’d cover it up with some ombré fading to black.

Hmmm, it’s alright, but so very green! I wanted to cover it with some sort of stamp. And I’m actually thrilled with the results! The more I look at it, the more I love it!

I feel all inspired!! So I want to inspire all of you, too! Step out of your comfort zones, readers! You might find something you quite like!
(and on that motivational note, I shall bid you adieu, and go stare at my nails some more)

Good moo-rning!

Okay, so that title didn’t exactly work. Oh well. That’s what I get for trying to be witty!

My new black stamping polish arrived yesterday! So today I thought I’d try out a different kind of animal print I’ve not done before. Cow print!

I don’t really know why I chose Cow. I’m always doing leopard or zebra or something, and thought I’d try something different! To achieve this look, first I painted all my nails white. The only white polish I have is one from a French Manicure set! And as you can see from the pics it’s a bit streaky. White is so unforgiving, and so hard to work with! I absolutely had to do 2 coats just to get even coverage.

Then I stamped cow print on top, using Bundle Monster plate BM-222, and my new polish I was waiting for, Konad, special nail polish – black.

Et Voila! Moody moo cows. Divine Bovine, if you will.
