We made it to 2013, and what better way to kick off a brand new year than by trying a brand new nail trend? According to Julep, this year's trend will be double accent nails. Although it still looks a little weird to me, I thought I'd give it a try, and I think I like the symmetry of it! I also wanted to try a new color, one I don't usually go to. I used Sally Hansen Commander in Chic, a beautiful taupe that I have gone for before, and then KleanColors Retro Green, a green so dark it almost looks black. I don't usually go for green or go this dark, so I decided to go for it! To spice it up a little more, I decided to go with a snakeskin pattern stamp on Shany's 213 plate, one I've literally never used before. I chose China Glaze Passion so it would really stand out. I really love the look as a whole, and it's really rewarding to go out on a limb and try something new! I look forward to a whole year to tackle bigger projects!
Hard to tell, but SUPER dark green!
