Earth day 2013 with Sally Hansen

I won a blog contest! Woot!!! From the sweet KarenD at Frazzle and Aniploish
I was sooo excited. She gave away the same amount of polish as the number of years she has been on this earth...Earth Day...see that connection there. *wink* Thank you Karen!!!

I used Sally Hansen Tropical Brights to do my Earth Day mani. It was fun and intricate. I thought it would be easier than it was. But I will try it again!

My entire hand! The shock



My awkward right hand.


I was going for an interwoven theme. "I knew you before you were woven together..."
I used a piece of waxed paper and painted about three coats of polish of all three colors. Parrot, The Sky's the Limit, and Temptation. Then with craft scissors I cut the paper and the dried (after a day or two) polish into the rick rack strips. I painted my base colors. Most nails were blue, some on my right pink and some on on my left green. Then I stuck the strips on (sans wax paper) and topped it off with top coat. Some of them smeared a little.

Will you try something like this? I need sharper scissors!
Have a great day!
