31DC2013 Day 4- Green Nails!


Second post! Woo! I’m on a roll today, guys, this is super exciting!

FINALLY WE’RE ON TO MY FAVORITE COLORS! I’m really not a fan of warm-toned colors (you’ll notice I post more glitters and cool tones like blues, greens, and purples than reds, yellows, or oranges) so knowing that the next 3 days are for cool tones really excites me! I wanted to do something fun and funky today, since I recently bought an electric lime green from Aeropostale’s beauty line, Live, Love, Dream, that I desperately wanted to try out. And what better day than green day? So let’s get to the design!

I opted for a bullseye look today. On the majority of my nails, I started with 3 coats of Live, Love, Dream’s Key Lime Pie, an eye-searingly neon green/yellow that dries satin (like most neons do). Then, I used a toothpick to draw for small dots on the left side of each nail. The dots were in the color 040 by Rue Beauté. 040 is a dark, blue-green, reminiscent of clover to me. I then put a dot of Key Lime Pie in the center of each dot, and then another dot of 040, to create mini bullseyes. Then, for my ring finger, I alternated layers of Key Lime Pie and 040, leaving the sides unpainted to create a large bullseye over the full nail. The result is a little retro and super fun, and I seriously love these! Pics below are with no topcoat.

I seriously love Key Lime Pie- it’s adorable! I’ve been looking for a good, inexpensive lime neon and I think I’ve found it! Aeropostale Nail Polishes are $6 and are found at Aeropostale stores, and on their website here.
