Polish Party - Spring

March's Polish Party theme is SPRING! I love spring.  I am not a fan of winter, and often find the winter months very depressing. When spring starts coming round, and the days are longer, the trees start budding and the flowers start coming out, I always perk up a lot. 


For quite a while I've been wanting to copy The Nailasaurus's waterfall nails, but with a blue/green colour scheme to make grass against a blue sky, and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity.  The blue is Barry M Mist, from the Silk collection - this is two coats. I love the silks, they're so pretty and apply and dry so well!


I then added the grass using all Barry M polishes - Spring Green, Meadow and Key Lime - and a thin striping brush. I think perhaps my brush wasn't as fine as it should have been, as the lines aren't as thin or as delicate as I'd have liked, but this does look pretty at arm's length.
