Weekly Color Inspiration {Emerald Glitz}

 
Emerald Glitz Manicure by Astrowifey

{Bottom layer on all fingers – Ginger & Liz New Money. Top layer on all fingers – China Glaze Watermelon Rind. Silver metallic nail tape on all fingers here.}

Emerald – deep, dark, full of mystery. It’s not only Pantone’s official color of 2013, it’s also a sexy shade of green that I have used way too little of in my life. After several weeks of traveling, I finally reunited with nail artist extraordinaire Astrowifey the other day. I told her about the lack of Emerald in my life & within half an hour she had created this beautiful manicure. Her use of metallic nail tape makes the look a little more special & edgy. I’m already scheming my next Astrowifey visit…are there any cool nail/mani designs you’ve been dying to see or try out?

Move over, Tangerine!! Pantone has officially declared Emerald Green as the color of 2013. To me, Emerald is a deep, elegant, and sophisticated hue. It also relates back to nature, which makes it so calming and fresh. Oh, and it happens to be May’s Birthstone – which makes it my Birthstone – yay! In the Middle Ages, Emeralds were believed to hold the power to foretell the future – hmmm. What’s your take on Emerald Green? Love it or hate it?

Have a wonderful weekend, Lovelies!
