Emerald for 2013



Hello, Loves! Brittney from Precious Polish invited a few lovely bloggers to team up and create an Emerald-inspired manicure in honor of Pantone's color of the year for 2013: Emerald. Emerald is a lovely color and I really wanted to have fun with this.



I used China Glaze's Turned Up Turquoise over OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls with mini studs that I bought from BornPrettyStore.com on my thumb and ring finger, Enkelini's Capybaras over China Glaze's For Audrey on my  index and pinky, and Enkelini's Sapphire Mine over Maybelline Color Show Onyx Rush on my middle finger. (I received the two Enkelini polishes in a giveaway hosted by Christa from ChrissyAi by Pat from Enkelini Nail Polish. Thank you both!)


Be sure check out these lovely ladies who also did Emerald-inspired manicures:
Brittney @ Precious Polish
Naomi @ Bellezza Bee
Whitney @ Dressed Up Nails
Winnie @ The RAWR Shop

I hope you are having a beautiful start to the new year and if you have done an Emerald mani for 2013, please leave a link to your mani down below! I would love to see! :D
