Massive Greens + Award

as promised, i did a green mani for October since it is Depression Awareness Month as well as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

not really digging this mani. but it definitely fulfills the green. my sister got an awesome new lamp so i took pictures under it. my skintone looks different in each picture - so please excuse that.

left hand, from left to right, here's a list of the polishes i used: Essie Sew Psyched with white hearts; Joe Fresh Mint with the lace design off image plate m57; OPI Jade is the New Black; Avon Jade, & Sally Hansen Going Green with green glitters on top.

please excuse my awkward hand. my right hand is still a little camera shy :P from left to right: Catrice Sold Out For Ever with white stamping from plate m57; OPI Who The Shrek Are You with glitters on top; Joe Fresh Mint with zebra print off plate m57; Essie Sew Psyched; & China Glaze Four Leaf Clover.

here's a picture of my most recent purchase;

Orly’s Space Cadet & OPI’s Show It And Glow It!~ i only spent $8.45 for the two. hehehe ^^
