Green-on-Green Organic Print Nails

Good Morning!!

The best way to update a tired manicure is to use the current color as a base and add something to it. I sometimes add a chevron, or I stamp something over it. You could also add a little design with a nail art pen or striping brush, or add a coat of glitter. After wearing my green Navigate Her nails I showed you yesterday, I wanted to do a little green-on-green stamping over the top. I also wanted something kind of organic-looking to go with the whole green-on-green, spring color motif I had going on. This is what I decided to do:

Green-On-Green Organic Print Nails:

How To Get These Nails:

  1. Base coat those bad boys.
  2. Apply 2-3 coats Essie Navigate Her.
  3. Apply 1 coat of your favorite top coat. Allow to dry thoroughly.
  4. (Bonus step) If you want stamping insurance, apply several coats of top coat, allowing each to dry slightly before you apply the next. This gives you a thick layer of clear polish so that if you make a mistake with your stamp placement you can use a cotton ball soaked in remover to quickly remove the stamped image but keep your base color perfect.
  5. Use BM 210 and ChG Westside Warrior to stamp the leafy design on each nail.
  6. Apply 1 careful coat of top coat, making sure not to go over the stamped design twice in one spot.
  7. Voila! Lovely green nails!! šŸ™‚ I LOVE THESE!!!

I wore these nails for a couple of days and adding the design helped me to get a LOT more life out of my green nails. I love Navigate Her’s color so I was glad I could stretch out my green nail days šŸ™‚

What do you do to revive a flat-lining manicure? If you have or have ever had fake nails, do/did you usually leave them how your nail tech does them or do you paint over your nails a billion times between appointments? When I had fake nails I was messing with them every five seconds and never really liked how the nail lady did them… I was probably the biggest waste of fake nails ever!! Haha. Let me know if you’re the same way! Till next time, Happy Polishing!! šŸ˜€

  1. Ohmygodyoucrazynaillady. These nails look amazing. I am jealous at how pretty these came out. I think Navigate Her looks kinda sickly on me so I haven’t worn it since I swatched it, but it looks awesome on you. I am going to have to make a list of regular nail polishes that work for stamping. I am always way too scared to try it because I’m afraid of ruining my mani with a crappy stamp color.

    • Thank youuu!!! I liked it a lot too. Lots of my ChG polishes work well for stamping, which is SO NICE. I always just put on a TON of top coat so that if I try a stamp and don’t like it I can just take the stamp off, leave the base color and try again. I do this alllll the time. šŸ™‚
