Summer Challenge: Jungle Mani

Today's challenge prompt was Jungle or Parrots. Birds seriously freak me out, so I opted for jungle :) Also I had a bunch of greens sitting in my untrieds and I decided to knock them out :)

My goal was to make it look like a wet and lush rainforrest. I started with two coats of Sinful Colors HD Nail, then added the following glitters: Orly Here Comes Trouble, Love & Beauty small green glitter (L.A. Girl Purge dupe) and then a sparse green glitter with huge hexes. I loved this a lot! So dang sparkly!

Then to make it more Jungle-ly (or Jungle-like) I stamped with CND Green Scene and fauxnad plate M72. This green was too close to the layers under it and didn't really add anything :/

Finally I added the last layer of leaves with Bundle Monster plate BM19 and Sally Hansen Just In Lime! This is one of my favorite stamps of all time and why I ordered this Bundle Monster set first :) Although the leaves are kinda hard to see, I still really like this mani :)
