Playing With Colours: Green With Envy

As green is typically a colour that many shy away from, we decided to focus on using the various Shellac shades. 


I do think it can be difficult to get some clients to try it but certain shades such as Sage Scarf may be a good one to start with as its a muted shade so it's a little more subtle.


I'll run through what we used for each design, from left to right.

  • Sage Scarf, Black Pool with a champagne coloured foil.  The 'stone' in the centre is a mix of CND Additives in Gilded Gleam, Emerald Mirage and Shimmering Silver.
  • Pretty Poison with blue, lilac and green foils over it in a diamond shape.
  • Hotski To Tchotchke with Black Pool design, foil over.  The gem is CND Additive in Deep Blue with Shimming Silver.
  • Lush Tropics and Bicycle Yellow.
  • Serene Green with green foil in a diamond shape.
  • Sage Scarf with Hotski To Tchotchke over it, a strip of Locket Love and Black Pool.


  • Sage Scarf with African Jade foil down the sides.
  • Pretty Poison with a mix of CND Additives in Gilded Gleam, Emerald Mirage and Shimmering Silver.
  • Pretty Poison with Hotski To Tchotchke over it, carved.
  • Serene Green with lilac foil, Locket Love and Black Pool
  • Sage Scarf with a mix of CND Additives in Gilded Gleam, Emerald Mirage and Shimmering Silver.
  • Frosted Glen and Tango Passion.


  • Hotski To Tchotchke with Locket Love and Black Pool.
  • Sage Scarf and Black Pool with a leopard print foil over.
  • Limeade with Black Pool and lilac foil which I think looks a little 'Mad Hatter's Tea Party'
  • Lush Tropics, Bicycle Yellow, Sultry Sunset, Tango Passion and Electric Orange.
  • Frosted Glen with green foil scrunched and dabbed on.
