Feelin' Groovy Green

Hello, Fireflies!

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?


  1. That green is such a fun shade to wear especially with the gloomy weather here where I live.

  2. Love the colours! And next week you can do the 70s kitchen *winks*

  3. I usually don't like greens, but this is pretty!

  4. very hippy-like design! I like the stamping and color you used

  5. Wow - that green is bright and I love it :D Love the mani

  6. I have always wanted to rock green shades but they just don't work for me, however they look stunning on you.

  7. OMG there so should be a 70s kitchen mani challenge!! We had some fabulous dark brown hues happening in my childhood home.

  8. That pattern is SO cool! And I definitely need to try Ulta polishes - I always cruise by that section

  9. Loving the stamps! So pretty and perfect for this time of year!

  10. I like the green shade that you used as a base for this nail art!

  11. Love those flakie toppers- I have the purple shade!


Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
