Theresa from Grace-full Nail Polish has been lovely enough to donate a beautiful custom green polish to my Lyme Disease Awareness Nail Polish Giveaway called ‘Lyme For A Cure’. One lucky person will win that special polish but for today I will show you a lovely green available in her shop. Please ignore the little dog tooth mark on my pointer finger, I have to get better at remembering the gentle command when giving dog treats.

Grace-full Nail Polish Karen is a green polish with bright green flakies and lots of golden shimmer. It was a little bit darker than what I was expecting but it is still bright and a great colour for Lyme Disease Awareness. I only needed two coats to make this polish opaque but I did find it slow to self level. A coat of KB Shimmer Clearly on top made Karen shiny and smooth. The shimmer is prominent in all lights, and really brings this polish to life. All the shimmer makes the polish a little harder to remove, but I have been using the foil removal method a lot lately so it didn’t bother me. I decided to add some butterflies using a She Sells Sea Shells UK nail vinyl stencil. Butterflies represent change and hope for me so I think they fit perfectly into a Lyme Awareness mani. I sponged Grace-full Nail Polish Gaye over the vinyl and removed it immediately, so that the polish didn’t dry. Gaye is a red/coral colour with gold sparks, it shows up darker over the green but it nice and bright by itself.

I really enjoyed wearing this mani. Melbourne has had barely any sunshine this past week but I was still able to enjoy the shimmer from Karen in low light. I am trying my best to do green manis for Lyme Disease awareness this month but my ailing health is keeping me from doing as many as I would like. Please join me and post you green manis with #lymeawarenessnails on social media and help me raise awareness for this horrible disease. You still have time to enter the instagram giveaway at @alintamcmurdo so please go check that out too.
