When I first completed this manicure, I was unhappy. It didn’t look like how I intended. My boyfriend informed me that it looked like an elven forest design from Lord of the Rings and I was instantly cheered up! (He keeps either helping or hurting my opinion of my nails. This is normal, right? :-p)
I had not yet swatched Green Diamond from Darling Diva, so I decided to center this manicure around her. I As with all other Darling Diva diamond collection holos, this polish took two coats but I could have gotten away with one. This polish is a beautiful medium green with a holographic flare! I am a sucker for green polishes, so this one was a hit with me. It dries to a stain finish, so if you want shiny you need to add top coat!
The design is based off a stamp combo from Sarap898 (I don’t have instagram so I can’t just link to her design. I feel bad, but for now I refuse to get instagram!). I actually tried to copy her accent nail tool, but Green Diamond dries so fast that it will not stamp. Yes, I tried. So I just free-handed the design! The other polish used here is the wonderful Saint George by A England with a stamp from BM 225.
Since both of these greens are holos, this mani came to light in the sun! Both green AND glittery. Go nail polish! 🙂
Hope you enjoyed!
