Green Gradient Abstraction

So, I initially put together a different mani for Green day in the 31 Day Challenge, but I didn’t like it. It came out 80% gold! So, it has been moved to the Stripes day :-). Todays has been replaced with this green concoction which I like much better!

I started with a base of the lightest green, because Green by Nabi, although quite pretty, takes 4 coats to be opaque. Once that was dry, I gradiented on two darker green holos! My plan was to splatter on a darker green, but it turns out I have no straws in my apartment, so I settled for stamping instead!

I added a stripe of a dark green creme and then dots to finish off the design. Initially, I was going to use cremes for the whole thing, but I decided to take a page of out my book from a blue design I did a while back, so I went for holos instead!
