Sunshine on my finger tips

Not much light today - but this manicure doesn't need sun to shine. These are green and yellow from Claire's pastels .

I saw this way of painting nails yesterday on Emerald Sparkled Louboutin nails , she made gorgeous red on black design. Click if you haven't seen them already! Thought I'd give it a go with this green for real lime nails...

See, the green is really mean on its own - really great neon but maybe too much contrast against the white snow right now...

And I like the way these colors go together. Not just the shades, but the consistency too. The first coat was very hard to get even - and I just tried to cover the nail as much as I could, to not leave bald spots. But the second coat of green went on like a dream. Then to add yellow it was like any other polish, no pain. Not the best quality of polish but for 2 layers really good.

I wonder if they sit on the nail better if there's Claire's own base coat? If anyone has any experience, please let me know too.

Happy days!
