Leaf Nails - swatches

As May is soon ending I hereby present my third challenge in the "May 1-31 Challenge". This is "Inspired by Nature"! This theme is very wide but I decided to do leaf nails which I've been wanting to try for ever.
I admit this design was a bit time consuming but in the end it was all worth it. I really like the look of them actually! I hope you like them too :)


This manicure is a combination of a nail striping tape manicure and a stamping manicure. The green base is China Glaze Holly-Day and the silver polish is a Depend polish.

First I applied Holly-Day and then I attached the striping tape. After this I stamped the pattern and quickly removed the tape. Voilá! :)

Don't forget to check out what the other ladies are doing!

How do you like this manicure?
How would you have interpreted the nature theme?
