In honor of the millions of new weeds about to spring to life after all this rain we’re getting, here’s some green in action — the base is China Glaze Entourage with love & beauty green (because of course it’s one of the green’s they’re not selling anymore and the bottles don’t have names on them) and Sinful Colors San Francisco sponged in for the gradient. ┬áThen I added a coat of nubar 2010 followed with China Glaze Matte Magic for the matte finish (except for the tips which got regular gloss for added effect) — don’t mind the raindrops on a couple of nails in these, it’s WET out.

    Hmmm, a matte gradient, eh? That’s a new one. I bet it is hard to pull off, since matte tends to bring out unevenness in nails. But it looks like you really pulled it off! Love it! (And glossing only part of the nail is one of my favorite things to do <3

    I adore 2010 (or Hidden Treasure) over just about anything and this is no exception! I picked up that green the other day and I can’t wait to use it – I was thinking about using HT over it, too!
