Nail Art ~ Lime Green and Gold #whencolorscollide

Good Morning friends! Last month I took part in my first #whencolorscollide challenge, then of course I missed the next prompt, but I am back again today with the most recent prompt – Lime Green and Gold. Let’s see what I came up with.

I really had no idea what to expect with this mani. They certainly aren’t colors I would ever think to put together. I knew almost right away though that I wanted to use Limey Bastard from Sassy Pants Polish Funny Fruits collection. I found that I don’t have a ton of gold polish (I must correct that) so I went with my staple gold polish, Zoya Ziv. I happened to have UberChic plate 8-01 lying on my desk and the large random circles within circles image jumped out at me. 

And then slowly but surely it started to come together. 

I painted 2 coats of Limey Bastard over each of my nails. 3 is needed for full opacity, however since this was a modified negative space look I wasn’t concerned with VNL.

While my polish was drying I made 4 decals, each using different areas of the image. I painted in random areas with Zoya Ziv – for the ‘modified’ negative space look. I then affixed my decals to my nails with a coat of HK Girl Glisten and Glow.

The gold didn’t pop quite as much as I had hoped, but otherwise I quite liked the results. A fun modern look for sure!
