Mixed feelings about this one.......

Firstly, this wasn't the color I was going for. Don't get me wrong, this is pretty and summery (since it's as hot as friggin' summer here!), but I was trying for VW Beetle green. What I got is a little more yellow than that green.

Second, i'm surprised this mani lasted until today, Saturday, since I did it on Thursday. Just couldn't post until today because Blogger was being retarded. The reason I'm surprised the mani lasted is this: I started off with 3 coats of OPI's Fiercely Fiona. If I had known it would still have alot of streaks after the second coat, I definitely would have used a ridge filler as a base. Even after the third coat, you can still see some streaks -.- Not happy about that.

Since I was going for a shimmery look, I added two coats of OPI's Sit Under the Apple Tree. It's a pretty, shimmery, sheer lime green that's perfect for layering. I could gotten away with just one coat, but meh. I did two anyways.

Lastly, I added a little Fimo flower to my ring finger as a finishing touch.
