Nail Art - Green Nails for #31DC2015 on Instagram

Some Press Samples Featured**

Hi there lovely readers! Today I am sharing another challenge I did for the 31 day nail art challenge hosted by Chalkboard Nails on Instagram. Today’s challenge was the color green!

Keep reading after the jump to find out more!


For these nails, I started with Never Go Out of Style by Fresh Paint was the base over my middle and index fingers. This polish is neutral mocha colored crème with the perfect formula. Shown below is just 1 coat! I then used the dry brush technique to add some green over my base. For this, I used High Line Green by New York Color, Gargantuan Green Grape by OPI, and Envy by Zoya.

I used As Good as Gold by Essie as an accent color on my ring finger. I also used this polish along with Sergeant Chevron** nail vinyls from SarandipitousShop to add arrow head accents over the dry brush nail art. I also used a gold color square nail stud on my pinky from BornPrettyStore for a final touch of gold.

Last, I anchored my green theme by using Envy on my pinky and finished up the look with a matte top coat from Sally Hansen.

I decided to keep things simple as I continue to slowly ease into the challenges, but overall, I am very happy with how these turned out!

As always, thanks for reading!

  1. You are very brave to take on the challenge. Maybe if I started now for next year I could participate ;) I really love this mani. It reminds me of military camouflage.
