ABC Nail Challenge: "G" is for Gold, Glitter, and Green

My "G" for the ABC Challenge are the colors Green and Gold. I was originally going to do a stamping design using green polish but my greens weren't cooperating. So- when in doubt - go with glitter! And what's better than Gold glitter, right? I painted my nails with two coats of Inglot 644, which is a metallic forest green. I then took a makeup sponge and sponged China Glaze I'm Not Lion down the center of the nail, leaving the green visible on the sides. I added Love and Beauty Gold from the bottom up to the center. I then sponged the tips of my nails with Julep's Oscar.  After I was done I topped with two coats of SV to make it smooth and shiny. I like that the green pokes through at various places and the sparkle of the different shades of gold, it kind of reminds me of Christmas ornaments, lol! I will have to try this with other base colors since it turned out so well. I apologize in advance for the pics- it is so overcast and cloudy here I couldn't get good light for the sparkle.
