In case you’re wondering: I’m fully aware that I wear a ridiculous number of green polishes. Seems like I got over the ‘green nail polish? preposterous!’ phase I had when I was a kid.
This is what I used:
- OPI Nail Envy
- MNY my varnish 753
- MNY my varnish 757
- Spooky Nails 2 in 1 nail tattoo liner black
- Seche Vite
I started with a basic polish application: one coat of Nail Envy, three of MNY 753 and one of Seche Vite.
MNY 753 is a fresh bright green with dense golden green shimmer and subtle holo microglitter. Like 757 is has a bit of a metallicy finish and lacks opacity. I haven’t done a side-by-side comparison, but I think this colour is extremely similar to Wet ‘N’ Wild craze Jade and Zoya Midori.
Like 757, this polish has a lovely formula and brush, allowing for an even application. The brush marks barely register due to the vibrancy of the colour. I need to pick up more MNY polishes.
This is MNY 753 in two coats without top coat:
And this MNY 753 is in three coats with Seche Vite:
After the base colour had dried I used MNY 757 to paint half of each nail with a darker green.
Then I added lacy rows of dots with the black nail art pen and sealed the manicure with another coat of Seche Vite.
Can anyone guess why I called this Lacy Roman Green?
