Shiny Green Olives

This is an olive green that I really enjoyed wearing. I thought it would look like moldy zombie nails, but it was actually very wearable. If you have really long nails, it might look Halloweeny, but I got compliments on this one.

To make olive, add black creme to medium yellow creme. The resulting color will be olive. If you want a dirtier green, add one or two drops of brown. You can also add white creme to get a more washed-out color. This polish was made only with yellow and black. I did add some antique gold glitter to the topcoat because….well, I think the name of the blog says it all. I think it’d be more sophisticated without the glitter, but the olive green + antique gold was just too good a combination to pass up. Also: I got a chance to wear my vintage Lucite WonderWoman ring!

About nevertoomuchglitter

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.
