Vegetable nail art in green

Yep, you read the title correct, here's a first in my blog; vegetable nail art. I've used some Born Pretty Store water decals which as usual contain of 10 sets of nails with small motives. On the one I picked out there is tomatoes, chili, cabbage, cauliflower and pea shells as seen below. I wanted to create a green manicure so I decided to clip out the peas, cauliflowers and cabbages and the rest I'll make something fun of another day. ;)

First of all you can see my nails are shorter than before, I decided to cut them down since the constantly where breaking at the nail bed and I was fed up patching them with tea bags. It's not my favorite length but I know some of you like this length better and I'll just play with what I got until they are healthy and long again. :)

Onto the nail art. I started with a green creme polish on all my nails, then I added a white glitter green crelly polish on my thumbs, pointers and pinkies. I also decided to attach 2MM neon green square metal studs on top. And then I created a gradient from green to white on my middle and ring fingers, which are my accent nails. After everything was dry I placed my water decals (I've done a tutorial HERE) and then painted top coat on top. If you haven't tried water decals you should, they are really simple to use. This is also btw my contribution to Green Wednesday. :) I'm really happy with the result, the motive feels different and I also love anything green. ;)
