This is my manicure for the Polish Days “MAN-icure” theme for Movember. This is a tribute to the special man in my life who I reconnected with last winter after almost 20 years… my 7th grade crush and sports car driving super hero! He spent 7 years in the Marines and served in the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. While serving our country, he traveled the world and had experiences and made sacrifices that I can’t even try to comprehend. He jokingly challenged me to do a camo manicure one night while we were talking on the phone, so this one is for him. XOXO
To achieve this look I started with two coats of a neutral tan color, and then with a dotting tool I randomly applied brown, green and black shapes on the nail. The colors that I used were OPI Did You ‘Ear About Van Gogh, China Glaze Ingrid, LA Colors Voodoo, and OPI Black Onyx. I then topped it off with Essie Matte About You for a nice matte finish.
