This is my St.Patty’s design for the N.A.I.L. Linkup! I loved brainstorming about which green polishes to incorporate into this design to make it look Irish. I freakin love green nail polish. Here’s what I’m wearing: The dark green is Zoya Ivanka. I’ve only worn it once before so I was happy to try it out again. What a gorgeous foil green!
The light green is a new AVON quick dry polish that I ordered from my avon lady called Don’t Be Jaded. It was in the outlet catalog for $1.99! Like seriously! My mom picked up a bottle too and she texted me a cute nail pic this AM (it was her jade green nails with a sudoku game as her backgrdrop) LOL. Her text said that she painted her nails with Don’t be Jaded on thursday. Today is sunday and it’s still holding up. Yes, this is why we love AVON. And green is my mom’s fave nail polish color too so we be happy!
Do you like my giant gold glitters on my thumb and pinky? They kinda remind me of gold coins at the end of the rainbow. It’s OPI’s When Monkeys Fly! which I dabbed on and also had to pick and place some of the glitters too. I also did a rainbow dotted nail using a dotting tool and a bunch of random polishes. Then I placed some gold studs on my Zoya fingers, added some seche vite, and now I have a fun mix mani for St. Patrick’s Day! It was relatively quick and easy.
I’d love to see your St Patrick’s mani too. Here are the inlinkz so you can enter a N.A.I.L. pic for March-
St Patrick’s Day
No, I don’t have plans to go to a masquerade ball. But if I did- these would be the nails to wear! I did a halfmoon design using this lovely maroon polish called Masquerade Ball by Confetti. I love this polish because it sorta reminds me of German-icure by OPI (which I don’t own so I’m happy to have this quasi-dupe!) I left my nail bare under the halfmoon to get this cute ‘peekaboo’ look. Peekaboo- here’s a little bit of skin! In a way, it kinda reminds me of masquerades… where you only get a tiny peek of what the person looks like under their mask 🙂
To give the mani some more party-appeal I added some Sephora by OPI Only Gold For Me glitter topcoat. I haven’t tried this gold over a dark color before. I think it looks lush! Then I added a few gold studs to top it off. For my accent finger I dug some of my gold glitter out of the sephora bottle and stuck them on with a dotting tool (using my DIY glequin technique). I really like the accent nail with it’s extra flash of skin !
