Last week, my nails were adorned in an exotic beauty I got in a swap with ritterbraten (I'm not sure if she uses her real name online, so I'll keep it to myself) of Das Experiment: Catrice Sir! Yes, Sir! This is an army green creme, one of those lovely muddy colors I've grown to really like. In some lights, it leans a bit toward brown, but the green never gets lost entirely.
I used two coats of the Catrice with my usual treatment, base, and top coat; it wore six days with only one chip (on my thumbnail, which someday maybe I will finally stop using to scrape off price tags). On that sixth day, I couldn't resist experimenting with it, so grabbed Zoya Yasmeen and OPI My Kind of Brown to do some patchwork. (Of course I referred to Chloe's excellent tutorial on the subject, since it'd been quite a while since I last tried this.)
My lines weren't quite as sharp as I would like, but they weren't too horrible. I just need to practice more, but I get so distracted by other ideas I don't focus on any one technique long enough to perfect it. Maybe when I'm retired I'll have time!
