Green Distressed Nails ft. Misa and A England

A lot of bloggers have been doing the 'distressed' look first seen on Chalkboard Nails, so I decided to try it.  It gives a grungy effect and I was very surprised as to how easy it was to achieve!

I started off with two coats of Misa Lime Love, a pale green with a golden shimmer that has a thick-ish formula.  It was a little difficult to apply and nail line was still visible after two coats.

After that dried, I used Ulta3 Tahitian Lime, China Glaze Starboard and Zoya Ivanka for the rough swipes of colour.

Finally I added the black, A England Camelot, and a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast to finish off.  I'm really happy with how this manicure turned out - it was quick, and the end effect is so gorgeous!

Notes on removal: Misa Lime Love stained my nails to a yellowy colour that looks pretty bad in some lights but invisible in others - try wearing two coats of base coat if you're wearing this polish!
