Emerald Glow

And another green as the extended Green Week rolls on….

I had Sinful Colors San Fransciso, a medium green shimmer, but it was really sheer and watery. So I made a dark green base with navy blue and yellow and added an equal amount of Sinful Colors SF to it, along with some celadon green glitter and hexagonal glitter to it.  I also added a tiny spoonful of yellow shimmer pigment (like  a 1/4 of a pea size) to give it more of a glow. The glitter didn’t apply evenly but I still like the effect, but it seems a little too much like St. Patty’s Green for me.

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.

      Thanks Alexlyndra! The Sinful Colors are sort of a cheap drugstore brand that are usually too sheer but they make a great franken!
