Abstract Forest Manicure

Here's my Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge for today:

Friday 22nd June - Jungle mani or Parrots

I never realised that I cut off the Designer Brand French White in the above photo, so my apologies! From left to right, they are Cutex 2in1 Base Coat, Australis (62238), Ulta3 Black Plum, Ulta3 Mermaid Green, Planet Earth Glam Nail (black) and Designer Brand French White.

The dog-like clay model in the first three pictures is my friend's birthday present to me! She made it herself and I for one adore it <3

Now to talk about the mani. I realise that it doesn't really look like a forest, but I don't have brown and so I couldn't create the forest I had in mind. Ergo, abstract forest. It's not clear in the photos but in the background of green I added white and black polish while the green was still wet, to create a streaky look.

If you have any questions about this mani, feel free to comment and I'll answer as soon as I see it!
