NOTD: Turtle Nails

The Inspiration

So I painted my nails the other day (orange on fingernails and green with shatter on toes) and then I realized that my toenails match this decorative lawn turtle we have in our backyard.

To achieve this look I used China Glaze’s In the Lime Light (Neon) with OPI’s Black Shatter on top.  I also used Seche Vite’s base and top coat (I love their top coat, it dries super fast and makes the polish really shiny).  I find that the China Glaze neon colours dry quite matte (and you need like seven coats too!) so make sure that you apply a top coat before the shatter and then after the shatter for a stunning look.  The shatter crackles better on shinier surfaces.

Ignore the gross ant on my toe

And voila! I love this look, I find myself constantly staring at my feet, it’s just so darn cute.

And just for fun…
