Green Half and Half Nails | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

For the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group the theme this time around is three shades of green, and linked with my own personal prompt of half and half, I have these green half and half nails. I’m really not a great lover of green. I own a fair few, but I don’t wear them […] Read more
