Feelin' Groovy Green
This week's challenge was either a 60's theme, or using a matte/texture. Mine has a little of both, but doesn't do either particularly well.
This is my fave part: I picked up this sweet green polish at Ulta the other day on clearance - One In A Chameleon. I don't know if it's a green/gold duochrome, or green with a gold shimmer. It's a little thin, and needed 3 coats to cover VNL, but I love this effect.
I used this stamp from Dashica Big-B plate, and Cult Nails Nevermore for the pattern.
I thought this stamp looked all groovy and psychedelic. But it actually read more 'wood-grain' on my nails. Fail #1.
This bottle of SpaRitual Citrine Luminary Matte Top Effect looks like fireflies in a jar to me. It just glows!
On this mani, though, it was neither terribly matte nor luminous, though. Fail #2.
It actually reminded me a lot of the Orly matte flakie polishes. I think this one would look better over a dark polish, though.

I was trying for 60's groovy and matte, and ended up with something that reminded me of my mom's 70's avocado green kitchen. Hey, when's the 70's kitchen mani challenge?
