Green Nails for Depression Awareness Month

Nail Fun

GREEN = October is Depression Awareness Month

Hi Goddesses

So as you know, I don’t really do green but I really really wanted to do something for Depression Awareness Month.  As someone who has suffered with depression on and off for probably half my life, I couldn’t let the occasion go un-noted. 

So I made a special effort.  I don’t own many greens – Zoya Dree (which didn’t match what I had in mind), CG Starboard (see here for her own post), OPI Stranger Tides, a KleanColor glitterbomb and a wee Color Club called UNDER THE MISTLETOE – pure green liquid sparkle.

I almost did this as part of Blue Week, but didn’t really have any other ideas for the greens, so stole it ha ha.  It started with the idea of copying the famous mummy nails that Nailside does so brilliantly, but as usual, I improvised a little (well, quite a lot) and did something different for each nail.

I love the thumb, and the index finger, and have plans to make these into full manis.  I used a dotting tool for all the effects (I personally prefer them to brushes, but I’m weird).

They feel a little Christmassy to me - this is probably the artiest nails I have ever done (I have a LONG way to go).

Whatever you’re doing today, I hope you’re having fun J

Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
