Day four: Almost black, but it's still green.

EDIT: So even after Blogger finished all the maintenance and post recovery (supposedly), my post from Thursday never appeared again. I just rewrote it and put it back into where it was supposed to go. Sadly, the comments from before are gone, which sucks because someone suggested something awesome to try with the plates and now I can't remember who it was or what they suggested - just that I thought it was awesome! My green week finally feels complete... hopefully the post will turn up at some point?

Hello lacquered lovelies! For another day of green week, I have my first mani with the new BM plates! I'm so glad that they fixed a lot of the issues there, the images are much better this time around and will work for everyone! Although most of the full nail stamps in the old set were fine for me... I have narrow nails lol.

Also, today is a special day. My blog turns 5 months old today, and as of this writing I have 555 followers. The universe conspires again? I feel so lucky to have such lovely readers and thank you all for reading, commenting, emailing, talking to me on twitter, all of that. The nail world has been a great community to get involved with and I'm so glad to have met so many wonderful ladies!

Okay, end mushy time. So Nicole came over to hang out with roomie (who is also Nicole's cousin) and I. We went polish hunting (I'll be showing a polish I got tomorrow!), hit the Body Shop (ahh I love you satsuma everything ever) and Lush, of course. And a few other places. It was a very successful hunting day. Nicole had gotten her BM plates in the mail when she was on her way out the door and had them with her, so when we went back to our place we decided that we should all repaint our nails and use some of the designs! Here's what I came up with. I hope Nicole shows hers soon, it was cute!

I started out with three coats of OPI Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow. It's a blackened deep green and it's a jellyyyyy so you know I love it. I did three coats just because... well, because I'm a habitual three-coater, actually, unless the polish really doesn't need it. Slapped some topcoat on it and waited probably fifteen minutes before I started stamping over it with China Glaze L8R G8R (you know how much I love stamping with holos). Nicole chose the plate, because I'm terrible at choosing and just choose cheetah print when all else fails. She chose this sort of leaf design from BM210.

Because I actually have a pointer! Sorry about the bit of tipwear, I think I took this at work... stupid job. :(

And that's it! Super simple and actually pretty subtle in comparison to some of the other things I've come up with haha! 

That's it from me today! What do you lovelies think? Do you like this mani? Have you ordered the BM plates yet? Do you plan to? Do you have any ideas that you'd like me to try my hand (lol) at? Are you glad green week is almost ending? I'm not, I love having theme weeks, especially for one of my favourite polish colours!

 Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!
