today's theme of the facebook stamping group is "Birthstone Colour"
I am born in May, so my color is EMERALD
Emerald is a symbol for rebirth and it should grant youth, good fortune and forsight to the owner.
The word origin is Smaragdós/Greek or Smaragdus/Latin wich is translated as green gem. Emerald itself is derived from Esmeralda/Esmeraldus (vulgar Latin) a variant of the Latin word Smaragdus.
Actually, there are some greens in my stash, but it took me a while to find the perfect green for this nail art.
China Glaze Jolly Holly & Glittering Garland are the both greens I used - I used the first one in two coats over Essie Help me grow and sealed it with Essence BTGN Top Sealer. Then I used a sponge and Glittering Garland to put it on the tips.
I stamped with H&M Golden Treasure and Konad m78. Actually this is one of my favourite image plates! I finished my stamping with Essence BTGN Top Sealer.
