It Ain't Easy Bein Green

Recently I got my hands on the China Glaze Halloween Crackle set.  It comes with four polishes: Cross Iron 360, It's Alive, Black Mesh, and Goulish Glow.  I really only wanted It's Alive and the Goulish Glow but for $11 I basically got the other two for free anyway!  It's Alive is a green glitter and it's pretty awesome.  It has micro glitter AND larger hex glitter in a deep green jelly base.  Of course I couldn't wait to use it so I put it on right away and I wasn't disappointed!  I like to use a base coat under my glitters for several reasons.  One: it seems to keep them from chipping longer, two: it prevents you from wasting glitter by using a million coats for coverage, and three: it makes removal easier.  For this mani I used Zoya Dree as a base.  It's a deep olive green with a dusty sort of quality to it.Then I added two coats of It's Alive.  I wanted to add a bit of interest to it so I did a french tip with Zoya Veruschka.  It's part of their Matte Velvet line but it looks great with a shiny finish as well! Two coats of Seche and done! 

Here's a close up of the glitter in It's Alive.  Isn't it amazing?

Base: Zoya Dree
