Green gradient Toreads nails (Lyme Disease and Mental Health awareness month)

Hi everyone,

I made these green nails about a week ago  for the green month of Lyme Disease and Mental Health awareness on Midnight Manicures. Before I got the answer if it was internationally I already made them becasue I love doing something for a good cause ;) You could have entered with a make up creation, a manicure (without nail art) and nail art. I did not do make up, for the manicure I send in a older one with Nubar Reclaim and China Glaze L8R G8R, I just love those 2 green holo's. For the nail art I made something new :) I love making something with a certain theme or purpose.

Base is a gradient of 3 green Catrice colors 390 Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy, 240 Sold Out For Ever and 740 King of Greens. Stamped with Konad SN green using imageplate BM01. And I added some self made water decals from the Toreads. This girl is called Flora.

Now you all probably think what are Toreads? I never heard of them before too untill a few years ago someone asked me to make decals of them :) Toreads are tiny creatures (forest nymph) and they are all about nature. Every Toread has his own special thing that is part of nature. So I was like Lyme disease is often caused by ticks and they live in the forest and plants and stuff. So it all has to do with nature ;) Made it a green nature theme.

If you like to know more about these cute creatures check this website: Toreads

Here a photo of the base.

I loved making these for the Lyme Disease and Mental Health awareness month, you can also check her facebook to see more photos of great green make up, manicures and nail art entries. I think it is a good thing those different kinds of awareness months.
