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!
Oh, I almost forgot.. the full collage.
That’s alot of green and gold. Have you ever taken part in #whencolorscollide? Just hop on over to the FB group to join the fun!
Until next time, stay polished!
