Vintage green


Hello dear readers, today I want to show you a vintage green version of the Ménage à trois mani that I did a week ago. I love all muted, dusty colors, specially when they're blue/green, so this mani is a favorite. Another thing I like about this look is the ton-sur-ton thing that's going on. (Meaning a combination of two or more shades of the same hue.) Polishes I used: first up is a polish from Catrice's Ultimate Nail Lacquer collection named Sold Out forever, which is supposed to be the Chanel Jade of the collection. It's a beautiful light, dusty green with a subtle green shimmer. The green in the middle is I Sea You from the same collection, it's such a gorgeous color! It's one of my favorites all time, a color that I think everybody should own and the price is really nice too: €2,49 for 10 ml/0.34 fl.oz. And it matches so nicely with Sold Out Forever! Last but not least is L.A. Girl's Matte Alpine Green, which is obviously matte, but that finish wouldn't fit in with the rest so that turned all nice and glossy after the topcoat :)
So which one's your favorite? The original below or this version?


Pink!

  2. I like the green version best! I think it's because i'm a lover of dusty muted colors too :P Plus monochromatic manicures are just plain pretty!
