Don’t ask about the title. I thought that the inspiration for these nails looked like something from Arabian Nights…but mine are green! So garden it is. This mani came about as I rummaged through my sister’s collection of polishes to find ones that I loved and wanted to use. No surprise…I go immediately for greens!
The base for this is two coats of Meet Me Under the Mistletoe (why on earth are polish names so long?!) by Orly…and despite having 3 deep greens with some sort of shimmer polishes, I really want this polish! It is a beautiful darkened green base with small gold and green flakies. I know this has been out for a while, but it reminds me of one of my lemmings…Zoya Ivanka. Regardless, this polish is stunning, and dries fast.
I then added two very expensive polishes on top…Viper and Nouveau Riche by Estee Lauder. Viper is so dark green as to almost be black, and is a really luxuriant color. Nouveau Riche looks like Scuppered (butterLONDON) and Faye (Zoya) had a lovechild. It’s beautiful!
The end product is super shiny and rather elegant (despite the glitter).
What do you think? Elegant or just over-the-top? Certainly green!
