My CRAZY green layered manicure!

Sop there I am, sitting in my dermatologist office reading "Harper's Bazaar" and I see a design in the back drop of an article, and it hit me!

Green layered manicure!














Crazy, Fun and super easy...I promise! Here is the "box design" that I saw, I snapped a pic with my phone.


















UPDATE: Thanks to Stephaine, she has identified this as "a painting by Josef Albers; part of his Homage to the Square series." Thank You Stephanie :)














I used OPI "Jade Is The New Black", "Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow", "Green-Wich Village",  and "Damone Robert 1968".








































Thanks to the OPI Prowide brush this manicure was easy. I applied the first layers as you would normally apply your polish.

Then, the second layer, OPI  "Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow", I just applied a minimal amount of pressure and let the prowide brush make the arc, the same with the next layer, OPI "Green-Wich Village".

The last layer, I used a nail art brush and applied OPI "Damone Roberts 1968".














When I finished I was afraid that my nails would looked "humped" from the side view, especially since I went over each color twice, but nope...














No HUMPS! I topped this off with my usual 2 coats of OPI "Top Coat", and then Seche Vite. It was layered perfection :)



























I loved this manicure and I plan o doing it again using greys, and maybe even blues...SHOCKING! LOL!


Keep It Sweet!
Pin It!

Cool.

Stephanie said...

That looks awesome. I'm commenting first because it looks AWESOME. And second to let you know that that what you saw in the magazine is actually a painting by Josef Albers; part of his Homage to the Square series. If you like that you should look him up. He's good for color inspiration.

I may have to do this! I think I actually have Green-Wich Village...I've got 4 bottles of Damone Roberts 1968. (Don't ask why, please...I get embarrassed!)
