For some reason, when I did these nails this week, the name “gifappeltjie” just jumped to mind..
The word “gifappeltjie” can be translated as “small poison apple”. This is the Afrikaans word for a plant (of the genus Solanum) which in English, is known by the names “Apple of Sodom”, “Devil’s Apple”, “Poison Apple” and a variety of others.
The little fruit is actually more yellow / orangey when ripe, than green (and in no ways teal… lol), but I just couldn’t get it out of my head, so Gifappeltjie Nails it is! 😉
I started with my clear base coat, and 2 coats of Yardley Quick dry – Aqua Marine
I then used scotch tape to cover about a 1/4 of my nails along the one side (except my ringfinger).
Followed by 2 coats of L.A. Girl color ADDICT nail colour – Urge on the uncovered parts of my nails (except my ringfinger)
This is a fun & easy look to do! And I can see myself trying it with other colour combinations.. 😉
Let me know what you think? I love hearing from you!
