Creative musings in bright colors

Green Through Silver

This fun glitzy of nail art was adapted from (aka I modified it quite a bit) lacquer&spice. It was actually a lot of fun! Even if my nails look a bit oddly yellow with two thin coats of Marvelous…anyway.

The base for my two plainer nails here is Veruschka (which is impossible to spell! Oy, Russian…), a BEAUTIFUL deep green matte polish by Zoya. It covers nicely in two thin coats. It dries to the touch very fast (it is a matte) but takes a bit longer to fully dry (and you can’t top coat it without losing the matte finish!). I bought Veruschka to replace my green matte from Mentality that I had to stop using. Veruschka is a brighter green, and honestly a prettier color (it has more depth, if mattes can have depth!). It also becomes possibly my prettiest green polish when top coat is added. Wow.

So, this polish is 100% a win. I like the quasi-sparkly-metallic finish of these older zoya mattes better than the new crushed-pearl finish. The old ones look better with top coat, and even without top coat to me. Hence, I would choose (and did, clearly) Veruschka over Honor (the new green) but each to their own!

The studs were a bit of a problem, as I only had very large and very small ones…all of my mostly-flat studs are neon-colored! So, I took some neon orange studs and painted them with Sterling Silver by Sally Hansen. Ta-da, silver studs! Pain in the butt though.

In other news…it is very very hard to find a wedding photographer who is good in low light. I know planetariums are hard to take pictures in, but this is driving me nuts!! Anyway. Enough venting, hope you enjoyed the art!
