This is the fifth day of United in Green and me and other bloggers are as you probably know by now trying to remove some prejudges about depression since October is Depression awareness month which Karin at Vacker&Underbar pointed out. I written a lot about my thoughts and discussed different research about depression during this week so if you want you can check it out.
For today I have another set of archive nails, like the whole week has been. This time it's a nail art I wore earlier this summer when my nails where super long. I really loved them like this but now afterwards I must say I prefer a much more square shaped tip than this rounded. The rounded tip isn't something I've done by purpose though! it's a combination of a period of no scissors/clippers and no nail file and the regular wear and tear has created this shape! Weird ha? Now I've found both scissors and files so in the future I'll try keep them more square shaped. About this nail art then, I made another nail art (which I haven't showed yet(!)) which inspired this manicure and also another one that I made most recently in holo.
I really wanted that the gradient would start at the natural nail and seamlessly to green. I started off with China Glaze - Sensuous which is what I use for french manicures (is a sheer light beige/skin toned jelly) and then tried sponging the light green to mix it and then I added a darker green polish. I think I could have done a greater job sponging the darker green here but I thought it looked good IRL. At the end I added the black opaque rhinestones which is a feature I just love in nail art's.
