Enviously Green

Happy Friday friends!

So glad it's Friday, I've had a full week this week, and after coming back from two weeks vacation it's hard to put in a full week.  I work an extra 47 minutes each day so that I can take every second Friday off - it's called flex time and I swear, it's my sanity!  Although sometimes my four day weeks feel longer than my five day ones.

Last week I went to Sally Beauty because they were having a bogo on Orly and I wanted to pick up some wishlist items for my pal Gini of Sassy Paints.  One of her wishlist items that I managed to find (damn you Miss Conduct, which I keep calling Miss Conception....) was Green With Envy.  Side note:  when I'm in front of a beautiful display of 100's of polishes, I find it very hard to pick out what I like - crazy I know.  Anyhoodle, after much hemming and hawing, I decided to pick up a Green With Envy for myself.  You may remember that I'm not a huge fan of green, but Green with Envy leans toward teal, so I thought I would give it a go.  Ya, it's more green, and ya, I'm not a fan of green.  I just think it looks horrible on me and I can never think of any nail art to do besides four leaf clovers and Frankenstein - not very appropriate for everyday wear!  So lesson learned, pick stuff I like and stop letting Gini influence me - LOL - kidding, she got me hooked on Sally Hansen Pacific Blue and it's become one of my fave colors!  Plus she's been trying her darndest to get me hooked on indies - not gonna happen girl, my nails are nubbins, won't look good, I promise!

Matte Green Polka Dots Nail Art

It was hard to capture the glossy polka dots on the matte nails, so I had to try a couple of different angles.

Sad little nubbins, GROW, I beg you!

  1. I love that look, It's so cool - and it's a gorgeous color!

  2. One of my favorite looks. And so simple. I use Seche Vite for this technique. It's so thick and glass/glossy that the clear coat beads shine like crazy.

    This aqua is YOUR color, Nicole. I love it on you.

  3. Pretty! I love the combination of matte and glossy, and this deffo is a good way to combine the two.

  4. I've never seen a design like this before! It looks good!

  5. I love the glossy on matte! I might have to try this soon.

  6. I love matte/shiny nails like this but I hate that my camera never cooperates to pick up the subtleties which is really what the matte/shiny look is all about! You did a good job picking it up though and they look great!

  7. Wow! It's soooo nice!!! the glossy dots on the matte polish are definitely gorgeous!
