Nail Art(ish)

So now that I am working on the almond shape nails, I am experimenting with some nail art options. I decided I would take a granny smith apple green as a base and add Let Me Fly on the tips. I think the overall manicure came out pretty good, but the green just did not do it for me. It looks terrible against my skin tone and made my hands look really bad. I created the green in hopes of coming up with a nice green. This is not it. I guess it would look good on someone else - just not me. This manicure came off within an hour of putting it on.

First I'll show you the green polish alone. I didn't bother with clean up since I do the clean up after the entire manicure is done.
These would be perfect Halloween witch nails! Man I need some lotion STAT! I have been really bad about that the last few days!

Now here it is with the "french" tips in Let Me Fly. I added a rhinestone on each nail.

Overall, I think this is a cute manicure that works well with this new nail shape - but the colors just DO NOT work on my skin tone.

"Teeny" wanted to say hello!
