Showing the Earth some love!!


Happy Earth Day (to our US readers... I don't know if you celebrate Earth Day in other countries as well...) I did a special mani for Earth Day today! I'm going to keep this quick because I have to head over to where our school's Science Society (which I am a member of) is having a plant sale in honor of today. I'm sure you guys don't really care all that much about my ramblings anyway... :)

Here's what I used:

China Glaze Shower Together, Nicole Iceberg Lotus, SH ID Jade Jump, SH XW Pacific Blue, Nicole One Time Lime, SH XW White On and Kiss Nail Art Paint in black

I started with two coats of Shower Together on all my fingers except my accent ring. I then sponged Iceberg Lotus onto those nails and then painted with the brush of IL, tips across my nails. Then I painted my accent nails with Jade Jump. After it dried, I painted on a circle with Pacific Blue just with the brush from the bottle (this was difficult... I wish I had some reinforcement stickers to use for this!!) After that dried, I used my dotting tool with One Time Lime to make some vague continent shapes. Then I used a Q-tip dipped in White On to dab on some clouds. I wasn't happy with how this looked, so I very carefully outlined the circle using the Kiss striper and went back over the continents with a brighter green (SH XW Green With Envy, not pictured) Then I finished with a coat of SV.

Here they are!

Detail of left Earth, sorry I didn't realize this was blurry!!

Right Earth, sorry blurry again, I was in a rush this morning! I actually like this one better!

Let me know what you guys think of these!

I gotta run now! Enjoy your Friday!!

Thanks for looking!
