Veggie Nail Art And Cover Girl Nail Slicks

I've been wanting to do nail art for while but I've been robbed of time and inspiration. Finally, I had an idea. I attended Veg Fest 2011 yesterday and wanted to do veggie nails to match. I'm not much of a Vegan/Vegetarian/Animal Rights Activist but I loving going every year to hear the speakers talk about living healthy. It's very inspiring.

Veggie nails! It goes: Eggplant, tomato, broccoli, carrot, and mushroom.

It turned out pretty fun and I got a lot of compliments on it. :)
The background color is Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud.

This is what I used for the nail art:
Jesse's Girl Crush, China Glaze Below Deck, China Glaze Channelesque, China Glaze Phat Santa, China Glaze Jolly Holly, China Glaze Grape Pop, and Zoya Shawn.
