A Year In Color: Green Nail Art

For today's installment of A Year In Color, I'm showing you how I achieved a really fun neon and textured mani.
I started with a base of China Glaze Grass Is Lime Greener.

I then decided to try a new technique for nail vinyls.  Instead of putting them directly on my nail, I made them on my Born Pretty Store mat.  After I created the design using my What's Up Nails nail vinyls and Zoya Cece, I topped it with a Wet n Wild clear nail polish.  I'm really impatient, so I topped that with my quick dry top coat.

After about 45 minutes, I transferred them on my nail and cleaned it up.

I usually have a tough time getting nail vinyls to give me a crisp, clean look because my C curve is so curvy.  This technique gave me the ability to achieve the look I wanted.

Have you tried this technique before?  Let me know in the comments!

  1. Very clever way to make the vinyls work!

  2. I've seen this done with viynls before but not tried it myself. Looks so much easier and gorgeous mani x

  3. I tried this technique once but the polish kept pulling up with the vinyls. Probably have to work pretty quick I'm guessing. Love your mani though!

  4. I really need to try that technique with vinyls now. I have a rough relationship with them right now.

  5. This is how I've been using vinyls lately because I use a peel off bc, so putting it on my nails, it peels everything right off, haha.

  6. This is a perfect technique for me because no matter what, I always pull off my base with vinyls

  7. Such a sweet final look, I love it!
