Featured on bottom is three thin coats of Tail Feather by Picture Polish, a lime green bijou holo that leans to the mint side and is a little sheer. Application was easy and did a good job of self-leveling (which it needed). The middle color is What the Deuce? by Girly Bits, a kelly green holo shimmer that is saturated with color. GB is always great, and I'm loving this color. The darkest green, and last layer, is Saint George by A-England, which is described as a teal, but I would argue is more of a forest green loaded with holo. I put skinny white striping tape on the two fingers that feature all three colors.
I'm definitely loving this nail art look and am going to try for some more faux ombres with other colors!

Monday Mani is about showcasing beautiful indie polishes that I've purchased through lifestyle shots. So many swatches out there are captured under lighting and conditions that aren't common of every day. My intention is to show mani's under typical lighting and wearing conditions so you can decide if the beauty is right for you or not. Please note that although colors are accurate on my computer monitor (Macbook Pro), colors do vary among devices. Professionals blogger swatches are perfect - here's my life lessons from a handmade artisan.
