Green Confetti

Sadly, my previous mani did not last long at all. I had read online that two coats of basecoat would protect your nails better and let your mani last much longer. Mine chipped horribly by the very next day, so I won't be following that advice anymore. In fact, the confetti nails chipped off in one big piece removing both entirely from my nails. I must say I was not impressed especially as my holographic nails chipped terribly too and that being my most expensive polish and my absolute favourite I had wanted it to last for a long time. :-(
Oh well, live and learn I guess.

 I decided to give the Green Confetti by Avon a try and kept this look much simpler. These sets of Sprinkle Nails (Confetti) by Avon seem to have three colours of beads in each set. This green set has green beads, silver ones and beads that appear a dark grey at some angles, yellow in certain light and see-through at other times. When they appear transparent it looks as though you haven't covered the entire nail with the caviar, almost like you have negative space. They are strange little beads that's for sure. I'm not quite sure if I like it or not. It's interesting that's for sure.
In this close up you can see how those third beads that I can't name with a colour look dark grey and yet at the bottom of the nail look yellowish. (Oh and notice how the grass is finally mostly green outside because spring has finally arrived and we didn't have any snow last week! Yea!  :-D)
I used Sally Hansen's Celeb City polish on all the nails and the Avon Sprinkle Nails in Green Confetti for today's look.
