I started with a base of Nails Inc Holland Park Gardens, a lovely pale soft sage green creme. Then I used some of the striping vinyls from She Sells Seashells to get a neat line near the base of my nail. I painted from that line to about the top quarter, half with Nella Milano Evergreen and half with Avon Peppermint, two quite strong but very different mid green cremes. Finally I painted the tips with Nails Inc Madison Avenue, a really lovely dark green creme.
I am surprised to say I really like the finished look although the imperfections will annoy me. I am glad I went with green, I think you are pretty safe combining greens and my plan had always been to stamp over these to hide any wobbly bits!
I chose Essence Stampy 001 (white) to stamp with as I thought I'd get the best overall contrast across the full range of colours and of course because they are my newest plates I've chosen an image from UberChic Beauty UC 3-03.
Finally, I added some pink stamping too with the same plate and Virtuous Polish Miriam.
