Mish Mash Mint Mani

Good morning, everyone!

So how do you like that title? Alliterations are awesome. Do you see what I just did there? I like to think I'm clever. Anyways, check out today's nail art design!

This mani went through quite the evolution! It started out that I was just going to do a mint creme on most of my nails and then an accent nail of black and white chevrons. But once I applied China Glaze Re-fresh Mint, I remembered just how much I love it, so my mind started wandering and coming up with other fun designs. So, somehow I ended up with this mish mash minty skittle mani!

Let's break this down, shall we?

I've done a simple leopard print on my index nails, there's some drips on my middle nail, my ring nail features four gold studs and on my pinky nail I've drawn some gold chevrons. And since I never show my thumb in photos (I'm just not a fan of the photo aesthetic when I include my thumb), I'll just tell you that the thumb nail is a repeat of studded ring nail.

As I said above, the lovely mint creme base colour is China Glaze Re-fresh Mint. The other polishes I used include Zoya Ziv (the gold shimmery shade) and China Glaze Liquid Leather (the black creme).

I really like how nicely mint and gold go together! It's not a combination I see in nail art that often, but it's really pretty.

I'm off to do some shopping for my new nail room today! If you follow me on twitter, you probably already know that I'm currently re-doing my nail room. I've ordered a new desk, I'm picking up a new client chair today and shopping for some new decor today as well. The desk I ordered has display shelves on one side so you know I've got to fill those shelves with some pretty things! The desk is scheduled to arrive on Tuesday, so you can definitely expect to see photos of my new room some time after that!

Anyways, thanks for looking!
