Not a kiwi mani.. or is it..?!

Hi all =)

Allright, that title might need some explaining.. Well I bought this awesome new polish a couple of days ago.. It's a lime green-ish from H&M called 'I'm not a kiwi'.. LOL! Hilarious (IMO at least)..

Well, that Facebook-group, Polish-aholic Anonymous (PaA) has this Monday Nail Art Challenge and this week the topic is sponging.. So yesterday I decided I wanted to use this new polish of mine as base, with some greens on it.. And at some point it dawned upon me that it could actually turn into a kiwi mani, albeit an abstract one..

"Not a kiwi you say? I'll make you a kiwi!! Mwuhahahaha!".. 

Ahem.. on to the pics..

Mmm.. Green! Mmm.. Bright colors!.... Mmm.. LOVE IT
I'm in love.. And I'm even more in love with I'm not a kiwi.. I couldn't get a color accurate shot of it, so a did a side-by-side bottle comparison with some close relatives..

Sometimes when I look at it, I think yellow.. Sometimes lime.. And I love it even more for that =) But I have to say that the first coats is pretty yellw-lime-ish and the next coat makes it more lime-ish.. But i loove lime, so that's fine by me..

Allright enought blabbering..

And in daylight:

The accessories to turning I'm not a kiwi into a kwi! mwuhaha!:

Obviously I think this is fun.. Little things please little minds.. Oh well! hah

I adore this mani (if I didn't already point that out)

What do you ladies think? Is it crazy taking a polish' name so litterally that you can find it amusing to contradict it? haha! Do you like this abstract kiwi mani?

Have fun and take care =)

  2. DUDE! That is ADORABLE! And man I never thought of using a sponge tip applicator for sponging! Good tip ;)

  6. LOVE!! What is the name of the Gosh glitter? Also how did you do the seeds? I seriously love this!!

  7. Hahahaha! I LOVE this one! I have a green that your polish reminds me of, day-glow yelow/green and they grow on you, don't they! Great job sponging and WOW, I do love this mani!

    Amber: Aww! It's Green Hawaii, it's seriously awesome! I did the seeds with a very small dotting tool, and then just 'smudged' it a bit so they weren't round.. Makes sense?
