Green Wednesday #7: Flower Power

Hey everyone! I know that Fiona usually does Green Wednesday, but since she didn't post anything for today and I actually wore green today, I decided to do the Green Wednesday post today instead!

Today it's Orly's Green Apple (sorry, I forgot to take a picture of it by itself before I added the decorations). It's a nice limey/green apple green. I applied 3 coats of this polish, and it kind of streaked a bit unless I had a lot of polish on the brush while applying it to my nail. I'm just hoping that it won't stain my nails when I take it off later.

After I added a coat of Seche Vite over Green Apple, I decided to try to do some dot flowers with my medium sized homemade dotting tool. Fiona's done this kind of nail art before, but I wanted to try for myself. I used Sinful Colors Fly Away as the petal color of the flower and Sinful Colors Let"s Meet (a new yellow of Fiona's) as the center of the flowers. This is how it came out. I couldn't pick just three pictures today like I normally do since they all looked good so I just decided to go with all of them:

Form L to R: Sinful Colors Let's Meet, Orly Green Apple, Sinful Colors Fly Away

I like how these came out. They also matched with the bright colors of the shirt I wore today (it's finally warm and sunny out today here in New England; it's 78 degrees where out college is!). So I hope that you all like this design, and if you live in New England, enjoy the nice weather while you still can! It's going to be warm again tomorrow!



  1. This is really cute! What did you use as your home made dotting tool?? I am curious!

  2. Thank you, I'm glad you like it! I used a sewing pin that I had in my sewing kit and stuck it into the eraser end of an unsharpened pencil. I used Elmer's Glue to try and seal the pin to the eraser and prevent it from coming loose. It works really well!
