Mint Green Madness

I have always loved mint green, or pistachio or whatever you’d like to call this lovely, sweet feminine shade of green. I mean what’s to not like about this color? Its seen largely on this Summer’s runways, seen in hair color, on teacups with painted roses and polka dots, on bicycles and even in your ice cream and chocolate. OF COURSE i had to do them on nails. This set is marbled with some nice gold glitter and then deciding that wasn’t enough, i added some pink/purple swallows on them. Its funny with the swallow print, it was in the Miu Miu S/S 2010 collection and just today I saw them used on a printed silk and cotton blouse from ZARA in Melbourne. Funny how long high-fashion takes to trickle down to mainstream stores. I do love it though. It is very pretty especially on a mint green background.

Before the swallows flew in..

Swallows take flight. Nails are done in a gel polish.

I do still enjoy doing nails very very much. I love how Australia is still so untapped in this area and that i can be a part of this movement, to steer aussies into the world of some serious nail art funk. Mark my words, asian lady nail salons armed with drills limited english and only french tips to offer are go, going gone. Very soon.
