Here is one of those manicures that I dream about and then, actually, am able to create it…
This is Savvy’s Femme Couture ‘Andrea’s Mint.’ I do not have a clue what that name means. Anyone?? Bueller??
This color is truly Shamrock Green. It’s a frosty medium green that, actually, performed better than I expected.
It’s only a little bit streaking and I can see, now, there is a bald spot on the upper left corner. But, here’s the look I actually dreamed about…
I’m not saying I ‘invented’ it, I just dreamed about it and then made it. There is one thing missing, however…
In my dream, there was a thin line of gold between the black and the green. I decided against doing that step since I did a half decent job with the black; I didn’t want to ruin it!!
I taped off all but the side slant and used my Migi nail art pen to swipe on black. I have several of these Migi sets and I do NOT use them enough.
Let me go back to ‘Andrea’s Mint’ for a moment. I used 3 coats and was surprised by the opaqueness of just 2 coats. Savvy’s have been really watery for me, in the past, so I didn’t expect this one to fair any better. In fact, I was going to pitch it in the ‘get lost’ pile. Talk about a sleeper!
My Migi pen was more than a bit on the thick side. I had to let it dry a long time before I removed the tape mark-off. Even then, it did pull on the green polish some. But it all dried quite nicely and I think I’ll wear this one, one more day. I wish I had some gold foil stripes; that would tidy this one up just the way I wanted it.
This look is chic, to me. What do you think? Would you wear something like this? Do you have or like the Migi nail art pens?
