Nail Art Challenge: Day 4. Green Nails!

So I'm finally back on track now with the challenge. I hope you guys enjoyed the yellow mani I enjoyed so much. It was hard to take off (both emotionally and physically, darn glitter!) but I am excited to show you the next mani!

This is China Glaze Entourage from the Kicks collection. It's a lime or a grass green shimmer that has a relatively fuss free application.

It is a little streaky when applying. If i didn't get it on fast enough, I would get bald spots. It could be because of the heat or something (It's 37°C here! 98°F for all you Americans. Pretty hot!), but i'm not too sure how that works. This is two thick coats of Entourage. It probably would've been better with 3 thinner coats, but because I had planned to do stamping over it, I didn't mind.

Here is the fun stamping I did! I just got the new black polish I purchased for stamping in the mail today and had to try it out. It's Kleancolor Black stamped with BM-211. I love this image. The combination is sorta reptilian, don't you think?

Now this polish was pretty good to stamp with. I've been having some issues finding a good black that's not Konad, because I like to budget my polish purchases.
It wasn't perfect, I had to fix a few fuzzy spots. I think the trick with this one is to push a little harder when stamping, but I'll have to play around with it!

I may be a day late, but this kinda goes along with Stamping Sundays! It doesn't look like they did a theme over there this week, but it's fun anyways. Head over to Adventures In Stamping to join!
