Tonight I want to show you the turtle shell nails I've done using A England Dragon as a base, stamped with Maybelline Bold Gold using the Mo You Pro Collection -03 plate.
I really struggled picking colors for these. If you Google "turtle shell" it turns out turtle shells are more brown and yet whenever I think of turtles, I think green so I went with my gut.
Before I received the MoYou plate, I originally tried these using Bundle Monster plate, BM-313. I liked both but I felt like the Bundle Monster plate made them just look reptilian.
And before I go, I want to show you a swatch of A England Dragon, along. I had a hard time getting the color correct on my camera/computer. It's a lovely olive green with a subtle scattered holo (the above photo is the closest I could get to the real look) and, of course, it has A England's amazing formula, opaque in one coat (but I used two because that's what I do).

Which plate do you prefer to try to mimic turtle shells on your nails?
