Purple And Green ~ Inspired By A Dress

Allo Polish Pals!
How are you enjoying your weekend? Let me ask you something; What do you think of purple and green together? I guess this is something I've always been on the fence about, it took me long enough to get over pink and green and even then I think it has to be the right sort of shades. Today's manicure is inspired by *this* dress on Pinterest.


I used just three shades for this manicure, using Barry M's 'Plum' and 'Coconut' and Essie's 'Mint Candy Apple'. I originally wanted to do a gradient with all three of the colours but it just wasn't happening. Instead I decided to split the colours up into block coloured stripes and used coconut mixed with the two shades to create some slightly lighter tones. I finished this up with a simple taped gradient and added some silver studs.

What do you think of this manicure? Are you afraid to mix these colours?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Love
Ithi

    1. I guess when I am considering if purple and green can go together I forgot that nature tells us it is entirely possible! I'd love to see your version of these colours together!
