Top o’ the Mornin’ to ya Beauties!
I hope you are enjoying your St. Patrick’s Day weekend =). I wanted to do a quick post tonight to show you the nails that I chose to do for St. Paddy’s!
And here is what I decided to go with:
I have two coats of Essie’s “Mojito Madness” as a green base underneath one coat of Butter London’s “Swinger”. I am really happy with how it turned out! I think this is the perfect grassy Irish green for St. Patrick’s Day =). I used Orly “Luxe” on my accent nail and a thin piece of striping tape in a green colour that closely matched the green of my other nails!
Mojito Madness is a little bit lighter green with a creme finish. The texture is a little bit tough to work with, it tends to streak and go on a little bit patchy since it is thick. It stays tacky for a long time too.
Swinger is a lime green glitter, one that I really wasn’t sure that I would ever wear when I got it for Christmas, but it looks SO amazing!
Orly’s “LUXE” is a gold metallic foil finish, it is very opaque. If it weren’t for my strange need to put at least 2 coats of polish (usually 3), this one really only needs one coat! But, I put two…
I hope you liked my version of a St. Paddy’s Day manicure!
