Today's post is on a nail art design that's kind of a failure. This was originally for The Lacquer Legion's lucky theme last month but I was unhappy with how it turned out that I didn't post it. However, I still wanted to show everyone regardless since I never like throwing away something I've put effort into. Its not my best work but I hope you still enjoy seeing it.
First, I applied Essie Mint Candy Apple on all the nails. Taking a piece of saran wrap, I dabbed a combination of Orly Ancient Jade and China Glaze Starboard on my nails to create this effect. Finished with Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Top Coat.
This was suppose to resemble a jade stone but it just didn't work out. In my Chinese culture, when your wearing jade and can get it to change into a deep green from wearing it and keeping it warm for a long time, its suppose to give you luck. What do you think of my lucky jade nails?
