NOTD: Lime with a Touch of Pink


Heeeeey! I missed posting NOTD's... so here! This was supposed to be a Katy Perry-inspired nail art but I realized I didn't have a nice neon green polish to work with so I decided to tweak my idea a bit. The color theme's still the same, though.


Nails of the day care of Bobbie Vodka on Ice, The Face Shop GR501, and Caronia Posh.


So basically, I used a silver holo polish as base since TFS GR501 is (just a bit) sheer. I applied two coats of Vodka on Ice and then applied GR501 on top to make the lime green color more opaque. And then for a pop of contrast, I drew a flower on each nail using my new dotting tool. 5 pink dots for the petals and one silver dot in the center. I topped that off with my TFS top coat to help make the design last longer.


I'd describe this shade as lime green to chartreuse. I love that it's not just a plain solid color. It kinda has an iridescence to it and my camera just didn't give justice to the awesomeness of this shade.


I hope you like it! I'm planning on sporting Katy Perry-ish nails next week so watch out for that, and by that I mean nail art inspired by Katy Perry's new video (Last Friday Night). I just can't get over that vid! Darren Chris is <3
