#52WPNMC Distressed Nails with Different Dimension LIGHT YEAR

Hi Goddesses

Thank God I will be caught up by the end of the year lol! Here is the first of 3 52 Week Challenge posts I have for you over the next 3 days.

Today's prompt is Distressed, which is a style I love, both for a mani itself AND for an art or stamping base.  It involves using polishes with the brush almost starved of polish, so that you get a very streaky effect.

My only dilemma was which colours to use, and it occured to me that I hadn't seen a monochromatic version, so I checked my box of birthday polishes and pulled out 3 stunners - 

- Light Year by Different Dimension, an amazing muted beigey green with gold shimmer (shimmers are always good to use in this sort of mani)
- OPI My Dogsled Is A Hybrid as my medium shade and
- Pahlish Jardim Botanico as the final darker shade

Unfortunately, my medium and dark green didin't have as much differentiation as I wanted, and in some photos it is hard to tell there's even 3 polishes at play!

I went back over with more Light Year to try and interrupt the greeniness, and again, that gold shimmer was worth its weight in gold.  For me this has a very antique vibe that I LOVE.
