Artsy Wednesday: Green Nailart

Disorganised, me?  Well, ok yes this time I admit it, I was not at all ready for this weeks AW.  Hence, it's half ten on Tuesday night, and all I have is some hurriedly taken photos.  Lots on my mind at the mo, and life seems to be escaping me a bit.  I'm sure it'll all come together in the end, these things usually do!  My cuticles are misbehaving again too, despite getting more care and attention than the queen, ungrateful devils!

The idea for todays mani, I'm calling a blobicure.  I didn't want to do dots or stripes again, and I did try, and fail, at some stamping at the weekend.  So I thought I'd keep this one easy.  I painted my nails with Nails Inc's Wimbledon, reviewed in full (here) and then just used my spotter nailart brush reviewed (here) to blob on various green polishes.  Here's how it came out:
I quite like the abstract look of this.  It reminds me a bit of the wreath nailart I did at Christmas, which I loved, (link) and I'd definitely like to try this same design in different colours using acrylic paints, I really think it has potential.  Plus it's easy to do, which is always a bonus!

Here's the greens I used:
L-R: Barry M Gelly Key Lime, Gosh in Forest Floor, Nails Inc Wimbledon, and Barry M Spring Green

Here's one last pic:
