I just recently got a package of makeup sponges (which I LOVE to use, but NEVER remember to buy, as I use makeup brushes), so I'm back on a sponging kick. This interesting color combo is a result of my recent house-cleaning day in which I moved ALL of my nail polish/implements under the bathroom sink, and these colors happened to miss the move as they were hiding on my coffee table. But I was pleasantly surprised on how it turned out! From far away, they seemed like a subtle pale green, but up close you can really see the details. I painted on two coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White, then gently sponged on the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Mint Sorbet. I then busted out Chrissy and my franken "Ash Wangsday" (ashy grey) and painted on some zebras. The end result was awesomely subtle. But unfortunately didn't last long on my hands; I ended up messing every finger up making dinner soon after I took these pictures.
This is a remix on the mint-white design, I wanted to try darker colors and black zebra stripes for a bolder effect. I don't know which I like better. But I love having different colors on all my nails.
These are my girlfriend Harmony's Bonnaroo mushroom nails, inspired by a weird mushroom picture off Google images. It's just black with swirls of green and blue dots, with tie-dyed mushrooms painted on top.
She also had me do a massive henna design across her back and chest which is drying and cracking off in the picture. She's very boho-chic.
