31DC2016 Day 4: Green with gold freehand

Painted Fingertips | Mint with gold freehand for the 31DC2016

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the 31 Day Challenge and today’s theme is green. It just so happens that today I used the same gold acrylic paint that I used just 2 days ago for orange. That was unplanned, I was doing many of these looks in advance and hadn’t realised I ended up using it twice to close together until later.

I decided to go with a pale green and started off with a base of Darling Diva The Screamer. I then freehanded the leaf-like pattern over it using the gold acrylic paint and taking some inspiration from one of my stamping plates.Painted Fingertips | Mint with gold freehand for the 31DC2016

I did manage better control with the gold paint this time, but it’s not the best. It does look lovely with the mint, though! Painted Fingertips | Mint with gold freehand for the 31DC2016

In previous years, I’ve done mixed media nails and and textured tips for the green theme. Tomorrow’s theme is blue, and make sure you come back because the nails I’ve done are really cool!
