40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Orange, Purple & Green

Friday 23 October 2015

Hi-di-hi peoples!

I can't believe we're already four weeks into this challenge?! Time seems to be on fast forward this year and I feel like my feet have barely touched the ground, it also means that my little heart op is growing ever closer and I'm trying not to think about it else I'll give myself the heeby jeebies hehe! On that note let's distract me with the nails I'm here to share... To accompany the orange, purple and green prompt my pattern this week is 'Camouflage'. I went with 'day-glo camo' because I'm totally feeling the irony in life lately.

I used two coats of Models Own Beach Bag for my base and then Flip-Flop and Purple Glare for the camouflage pattern. I first stamped with both colours at once using Cheeky Vibrant Plate 01 but the colours didn't 'pop' enough so I repainted the patches using a small nail art brush and finished with topcoat.

When I first saw this colour & pattern combo on my list I must admit to thinking "urgh" hahaha but I think using my alternative bright camo colours turned that around for me - I don't love it but I do like it more and more the more I look at it, it's definitely eye catching in this dingy Autumn weather!
