Manicure Monday - Colour of the Year "Greenery" Nails!

So this week I have decided to be the crazy Mom at basketball and paint my nails while the boys run around the gym so that I don't have to wait until Manicure Tuesday to paint them! 

I really wanted my first nail look of the year to focus on the 2017 Pantone Colour of the Year - Greenery! 
Manicure Monday - Colour of the Year "Greenery" Nails!

This colour feels really bright to me as a Winter nail look - but I decided to keep the nail art simple and focus mainly on the colour itself (although my husband told me that these look like marijuana leaves, but I was absolutely going for a multi-color starburst look!)

The colours I used for this week's are:
-Quo by Orly Instant Artist nail art polish in white
-L.A. Colors Art Deco green nail art polish
-OPI nail lacquer in "Greenade"
-also used Formula X nail cleanser, base coat, and top coat

I painted 2 coats of Greenade as the base, and then using the white nail art polish created 5 diagonal lines all with the same start point. Then, I went just beside the white with a darker green polish!

Have you done any looks yet with the new Colour of the Year? I actually think it will be a little hard to work with for beauty looks, but I would love to hear and see what you come up with! 


  1. I love them! Green is not a colour I wear often, but I may try some nail art at some point.
    Marijuana leaves? LOL! I can see it now, but I definitely did not think of that until I read it.

    1. Lol - okay, I'm glad it wasn't the first thing that popped in to your mind! I think green will be a big stretch from me to do as well. Not a color I use often!
