Good morning polished world! How are you all doing today? St. Patrick's Day is Thursday! Are your nails all green and ready!? You know that mine for sure are! Especially for today's Bestie Twin Nail post with Fashion Footing!
We are getting close to the two year mark of doing this feature. Can you believe that? Seriously feels like just yesterday we started. Now two years later, I've forced Amanda to do nail art and she's liking it.
Today we decided to do a green gradient with a gold dry brush over the top. Since Amanda didn't want to do shamrocks, this was one of the most St. Patrick-y thing we could come up with.
Let's take a look!
- Sinful Colors - Chalk It Up
- Zoya - Hunter
- Salon Perfect - Champagne Toast
- OPI - Love Angel Music Baby
Love how this turned out. At first I wasn't feeling it, but after the top coat was on, I was in love. I started off with a base coat of Sinful Colors Chalk It Up. Such a gorgeous polish, which I used in my leopard gradient I posted a few days ago. It dried with a semi matte finish since it is one of their demi-mattes. Usually I find that mattes are hard to work with, but this one was easy peasy.
With a make up sponge, I added Hunter to the tips of my nails. I wasn't sure I was going to like it at first, but it looked kind of neat. I need to do more of the same color gradients on my nails.
Champagne Toast was a spur of the moment addition to the manicure. I wanted the gradient to really pop and was between this and Northern Lights. I went with the Salon Perfect because it was gold and well, St Patrick's Day is all about that pot of gold! When that was dried, which seemed to be forever, I added a dry brush of OPI Love Angel Music Baby. If I owned a gold flakie, I probably would have opted for that because the dry brush kind of got lost on top of the nail.
What do you think? Something you would do for St. Patrick's Day?
Until next time, <3.
