Pick 'N' Mix Challenge: Camo & Dark Green

Wednesday, 3 December 2014

This week's themes go hand in hand, like much of them, which is handy! I had wanted to do this look by hand but was a bit pushed for time so went for a stamped version instead. It was my first attempt of using two colours in the one stamp for some time, and it took a while to pick up again...

I started with two coats of a khaki colour for the base of this look. I then used a darker brown and a very dark green together on the stamping plate to create the camo look. I used two coats of the dark green for the accent nail, topcoated all the nails and added the star to that odd one.

For a quick job I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. I must admit that I do prefer the hand painted look for this kind of mani, but for camo in a hurry this is the one! With a bit more stamping practice this could no doubt look even better too...
