Earth Day Nail Stamping

Hey there!  Did you know tomorrow is Earth Day?  Personally, I like to consider myself environmentally-conscious but I know I could do more.  I'm sure we all could so it's nice to have a day to remind of us that.



For this stamping I tried to match the stamping polishes to the base colours but I couldn't quite find perfect matches, hence the different colours on my accent nail.  The accent nail is 2 coats of Glitter Gal Tart Yourself Up (fantastic formula!) stamped with the recycle symbol from Bundle Monster BM-418 using Mundos de Unas Lemon Tree (#52).  


The other three nails started with China Glaze Gaga For Green.  Then I used a fluffy paintbrush, acetone and Nubar Forest to try to add different levels of green.  The "ocean" was added using Winstonia W205 and Mundos de Unas blue (#4).


On my thumb I did something different.  The base is three coats of Picture Polish Sky.  I made a stamping decal with Bundle Monster BM-408 and Mundos de Unas blue, filled with Gaga For Green and Forest.  I love how it turned out but must apologize for my messy skin.  


That's all for today.  Now go plant a tree or recycle some plastic or acknowledge the earth in your own special way.  And hopefully someday we won't need a day to remind of us something we should be doing daily.

'Til next time...
