There's a Scarab in my Midori! Diagonal Two-Tone French

Hello, beautiful people! It was such a pretty sunshiney day today, I was literally skipping around the back yard. And of course, taking pics of my latest nail design :D

I love the look of a two-tone French (my easy method for this can be found here), but I decided to mix it up and do it diagonally! The green is Zoya Midori, and the teal is Sally Hansen Lustre Shine #007 Scarab. I freehanded this with the polish brush, and it came out pretty well! Little shaky on the middle finger, which I didn't really notice until I looked at these photos. Two thin coats of Midori and one medium coat of Scarab was all I needed.

I couldn't decide what to do for an embellishment. I almost did a gold line separating the green from the nude base, but I was proud of my straight line so didn't need to hide anything ;)  I did want to bring out the warm gold-ish shimmer of Midori, so I settled on these little gold star studs from Born Pretty Store. Sealed in with Seche Vite.

Shiny bit on the star :D

These polishes are both very smooth and easy to work with, and I love them together. I think this would be a fun and easy way to wear the colours for your school or favourite sports team!

Do you have any of the Lustre Shine polishes? I passed up all except two of them at first, but after working with them, I think I want more. They're so smooth and glimmery and gorgeous.

Hope you liked these :) see you soon for more! xoxo
