Of course I can't go though any decent challenge without at least one freehand mani, right?And especially today when I am going to kill two birds in one post and show you my entry for France in Where In The World challenge as well as my fifth green mani for the week!To make things clear let me tell you that the background of this little froggie is not yellow. It is light green and the closest I had to the color of a swamp. This is 3 coats of Bourjois Lime Catwalk, a weird yellowish green creme. Not very pigmented, has a pretty lame formula and not an easy application at all. You can still see on my thumb how streaky it is after 3 coats. It is also not cooperative at photoshooting, but there is no doubt it is very swampy. The little fly on my thumb is China Glaze Liquid Leather and the entire drawing makes use of Orly Lucky Duck, Orly Wandering Vine and QRS Apple Lime. So it is very clear why this mani is part of my green-week challenge. And I hope it is equally clear why it is inspired by France.
While I like the little fella, I must say this is not any favorite mani of mine. I guess it has to do with the terribly look of the background. I might have to try this one again one day. But for now it will do.
