I've taken a few days off initially because my family was in town and, in the course of trying to take it easy with them, then I got sick. I've not done much but move from the bed to the couch for the last two days. Fortunately, I felt well enough to make it into work this morning; my checkbook was suffering from lack of income! In any case, I'm glad to be back. Usually, I'd have a Flashback Friday for you today, but, seeing as I haven't done a fresh manicure in awhile, I have a brand new one for you today!
This is a simple green, ombre-esque manicure. I was going for ombre but I don't think I have quite enough green variations to pull it off. Oh, well! I still think it's pretty! Starting with my thumb, I used Revlon's Minted and followed with Sinful Colors Olympia, Athens, Exotic Green and Last Chance. Olympia and Athens are my two new favorites of the Sinful Colors collection. Olympia is a great, light not-quite-mint green while Athens is a subdued teal-ish color. They look really great paired together or worn separately and both apply like a dream. Two coats of either makes for a great finish. Here's another view:
I was inspired by that line in Gone With the Wind (fabulous movie, if you haven't seen it, remedy that...soon!): "I want everyone who's been mean to me to be pea-green with envy!" Oh, Scarlett...is there anything you can't do?
