It's Day 4 of the 31 Day Challenge and the prompt for it is Green Nails. I don't use green very often so I didn't have any green nail art I hadn't shared yet. I rushed to do this nail art a couple days ago so that I'd have time to post it. I used an old OPI green polish I have called "Who the Shrek Are You?" I tried to keep the nail art simple but still ended up having a few issues.
I painted the chevron stripes on the accent nail and it looked okay on the night that I did it but the next morning I found that the yellow polish had gotten somewhat faded and smeary looking. I think it's a polish I need to toss because it seemed watery when I used it and also gave me problems when I did my Flash nail art. I quickly attempted to fix it with a different yellow polish before heading to work. The green had started to look bad too so I definitely regretted skipping a top coat in my rush the night before.
Despite it all, it still looks pretty good from far so here's a photo of it from farther away. I randomly found Shrek cereal at the store that same day so I felt compelled to buy it since it matched my nail color.
The 31 Day Challenge (#31DC2015) is a challenge where participants do nail art inspired by 31 prompts and post one per day. I won't be painting my nails every day but I'm challenging myself to try to at least post each day using nail art I have yet to share in addition to new ones I do. Not sure if I'll be able to keep it up with my schedule but I'm going to try! Thanks for following along!
