ABC Challenge: G is for Green Galaxy Nails


Hey, guys.  Super quick ABC Challenge post tonight.  It's been a bad night and I wouldn't even be posting except that I already had photos taken and I needed to keep busy.  Anyway, we're on to "G" so I decided to do Galaxy nails.  I gave it a go in green, not sure if I like it but here are some photos:







Polishes used:

Sinful Colors
~Irish Green-neon green jelly
~Last Chance-deep hunter green creme
~Olympia-soft sage green creme
~Green Ocean-blue/green flakies in a clear base 

China Glaze
~Four Leaf Clover-bright grass green creme

Sally Hansen Hard as Nails
~Limestone-bright lime green creme

Love & Beauty (Forever 21 brand)
~Green glitter polish-large, small and micro green holographic hex glitters in a clear base

I also used a couple of striping polishes in white and yellow to add details.

A side note on Green Ocean.  It's a coveted St. Patrick's Day shade which I recently purchased 4 bottles of.  I'm keeping one and one will go to my secret St. Paddy's Day exchange recipient but the other two I'm planning a giveaway with, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Please check out the other ladies participating in the ABC Challenge, you can find their links at the end of the post.

As always, thanks so much for reading!

  12. Oh. My. Goodness. Fabulous galaxies. I give you credit because I find galaxy nails one of the most difficult techniques to master. AND....I love that Sinful Green Ocean. I know that many have boycotted the purchase and use of Sinful Colors, because of the company's past unauthorized use of blogger pix. I take the position that they were suitably slapped about the Internet for that idiot move, and learned a valuable lesson in community relations and copyright law.

    Yeah, I'm with Dionne! Secretly wishing I'm your "secret". LOLOLOLOL.
