Girly-Girl Challenge - Day 5: Gotta Love Chick Flicks!

Today is Day 5 of the Girly Girl Challenge and that means "Gotta Love Chick Flicks". As always, here is the challenge:


So I am sort of cheating because my FAVORITE chick flick is actually Two Weeks Notice with Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant, however, I was very inspired by the movie for a mani, therefore, I moved to one of my favorite musicals, The Sound of Music (I know my husband is NOT on  board with musicals and therefore, they become Chick Flicks in my house).

When  I think of Sound of Music I think of this picture, which is what inspired my nails:


It's been WARM here for Pittsburgh in March and the green grass with yellow flowers from the movie just seemed to be perfect for this challenge.





Polishes Used:
Sinful Colors - Mint Apple (2 coats - base)
Sinful Colors - San Francisco (1 coat freehand)
Essie - Da Bush (1 coat freehand)
Sinful Colors - San Francisco (another coat freehand)
Zoya - Pippa
NYC - French White Tip
Out The Door TopCoat

I hope that you're not TOO burnt out on the green from St. Patrick's Day and I honestly don't normally wear it but something just came over me today. lol.

  7. Great movie and great mani! How did you create the grass? It kind of looks like maybe you used a fan brush? Well whatever you did it turned out really well with all the highlights and everything :)

    1. Amanda, I just used a smaller nail art brush and tried to do random grass strokes - I also didn't let the polish dry in between grass layers so there would be some dimension and it would be ok "smudgy". Now that you mention fan brush though, that probably would have worked just as well and taken less time ;-)

    That picture just makes me to sing!

    The nails are beautiful. So soft, they almost have a watercolour effect.
