Green is one of the IT colors of the spring/ summer 2018 season. But green isn’t a new color. Green is a color that comes back time and time again and exists in many different renditions. That is why I figured I could show you how I like to wear some of my various green items.

We are still on the color themes of the 30 day make up challenge. The first 10 rounds are, and we are now at round no. 3 which calls for a green make up look. I went with this very autumnal looks, with a mossy green eye and a plum colored lip. It’s a mix of both drugstore and high end products, so I hope you enjoy!
On these pictures the eyes look kind of muted down, but in real life it looked much smokier and heavier. I don’t mind the subtle though. It’s a nice touch combined with that fairly bold lip color. And very fall like if you ask me: the lip color is a deep burgundy shade which makes this so much more fall appropriate.
Read on to find out which products I’ve used.
I realized after taking the pics, that it looks like I have a patch of bare skin in my crease. As you may see on the pictures where I have my eyes open, you will see I have quite the fold and I applied the crease color with my eyes open. You only see it when I close my eyes anyway which, during the day, I don’t usually have.

What do you think of this look?
I suddenly had this idea for making a new nail art creation. Again, it’s something very simple nor is it super fancy, but I think it’s cute and the colors are a perfect match to the time of year.This is the result:
As you can see I went with a seafoam green base coat, added a single stripe in a deep forest green and topped it with a glittery green topcoat. I think the glitters add just enough sparkle to make this a festive nail look and the greens are great colors for this time of year. Wouldn’t you agree?
Here are the products I’ve used:
Base coat: Etos Nail Hardener in Very Strong
Top coat: Seche Vite Fast Drying top coat
Colors: OPI Mermaid’s Tears (Pirates of the Caribbean collection LE), Gosh Forest Floor (also LE, but I don’t know the name of the collection), Essence Nail Art Twins Glitter Topper in 06 Edward.
There you have it! I saw a really cool and cute winter themed nail art tutorial on youtube the other day, so I’m hoping to make that next week or whenever I feel like getting creative again.
So I decided to try out two new nail polishes that I got this week.
Two very nice dark color for these autumn days I think.
