ASBMF: Fresh Cut Lawn

So just wanted to start off this post by informing my lovely readers on an amazing giveaway!!! Carli over at Konadlicious is giving away $500 worth of polish items to one lucky winner! That's right $500, includes gift certificates, brand name polishes, glass bead earings and indie polishes!!! Definitely by far one of the greatest giveaways ever, so go over for a chance to win!!!!

Now onto today's ASBMF: Fresh cut lawn challenge. I figured this was the perfect time to try flocking powder. Not going to lie I did one had left it on for 10 minutes and then removed it. I'm not a fan of being able to feel stuff on my nails and this just isn't practice. It is adorable and fuzzy thou :)

I started off by using Essence Lets Get Lost as the base of the sky. I then used a make-up sponge and dabbed on Essence You Belong to Me and Billie French White. The base for the grass even thou you don't see it was Orly Lucky Duck. And for the flocking powder I used Recollections in Emerald. Don't mind the horrible clean up. Essence Lets Get Lost stained my skin biggg time!!!

What do you guys think about this technique? Would you try it?

  1. I really like the effect. I suggested this to someone, so I'm happy I got to see someone actually do it for this challenge theme. It looks great! I also like how your sky turned out.
    On a side note, may I ask you to add my blog to your challenge blog listing? :)
