For these, the first thing I did was use a light green base of Orly Coachella Dweller. It's pretty thin so I had to use three coats to get full coverage.
I've tried camo nail art before but this time I used a completely different technique. I saw this chisel camo tutorial by Beaching Nails and knew I had to try it for this theme. I can't say enough about the techniques she comes up with. I wish I was as creative as she is! Luckily she does great tutorials which allows the rest of us to copy her :-)
For the camo effect, I used quite a few colors. They are Zoya Flynn (the only beige in there) and OPI Uh-Oh Roll Down The Window, Jade Is The New Black and Christmas Gone Plaid (the dark green that allows me to say I fit in the dark green theme). Just as Beaching Nails' tutorial shows, I just dipped the end of a cheap flat end brush in the polishes and dabbed them on horizontally.
On my accent finger I used an Browning logo image from Dashica Infinity-100 and Mundo de Unas Dark Green (#7). A year ago I had no idea what Browning is but my sister still hangs out with her friends from the small town we're from and they like the Browning brand so now I know it's a hunting brand.
Personally, I am unlikely to ever do anything where I need to wear camo clothing. I don't hunt. The idea of sitting in the cold being quiet doesn't quite fit my personality but I am thankful for my friend who does and then cooks me delicious food. It's handy to have a guy friend who can hunt, garden AND cook. If there's ever an apocalypse I've asked him to take me with him. He said no and I can't say I'd blame him. I did a Facebook quiz on how long I'd survive in a zombie apocalypse and it told me I'd die in the first 24 hours which sounded accurate to me.
'Til next time...
