Nails: #fightforlightandlive - Depression Awareness

Nailsandpolkadots on Instagram - "The passing of Robin Williams has again shown that there is more to a person than meets the eye. Having suffered from depression myself me and a few friends have decided to collaborate to raise awareness for the invisible illness. Join us this Sunday by posting a green manicure using the hashtag #fightforlightandlive. Feel free to repost this picture to get as many people involved as possible".

These are my green nails for this cause, raising awareness and showing solidarity.

GOT Nail Challenge: Green

Today's prompt was 'green' and for this I used Sleek's Poison Ivy which I got in if not before June 2011, it also stamped quite well which was good to know. The accent nails are Barry M Greenberry which is more of a recent purchase, from May 2013.

Nail Polish: Battle of the Greens

For some unknown reason I have quite a selection of green polishes! Green isn't even a favourite colour of mine, so this was quite a surprise even though I sit and look at my polishes most days when choosing what to paint on my nails.

 ELF - Teal Blue, Kleancolor - Metallic Green, MUA - Green, Maxfactor - Graffiti,  Yes Love - 408, 17 - Peacock, Rimmel - Camouflage  Nails Inc - Electric Teal, Miss Sporty - Rain Drops, Barry M - Racing Green, Sleek - Poison Ivy, Models Own - Emerald Black, W7 - Metallic Neptune, NYX - Robotic, OPI - Unripened

Thinning down the 15 polishes wasn't as difficult as I imagined as Yes Love - 408 and 17 - Peacock Green are dupes. Models Own - Emerald Green and W7 - Metallic Neptune are dupes and NYX - Robotic and OPI - Unripened are dupes also.

Making the final four were ELF - Teal Blue, Max Factor - Graffiti, Miss Sporty - Rain Drops and W7 - Metallic Neptune. Teal Blue is a really sturdy teal cremé which holds its own in a world of glitters and shimmers which vie for attention.

Another battle round and making the final two were Max Factor - Graffiti which is a beautiful glass flecked mid green and W7 - Metallic Neptune, which is a black green duochrome, similar to a common black ground beetles back.

The winner is the blackened green, how could a blackened shade not win! W7 - Metallic Neptune in all it's duochrome amazingness. What is there not to like!
