Twinsie Tuesday: St. Patrick's Day!

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!!  All of your nails better be green and festive today!  If not, I hope someone pinches you.  People still pinch those who are not wearing green on St. Patrick's Day, right??

Today is Tuesday, which means it is time for another Twinsie Tuesday!  Since it is St. Patrick's Day, we are all sharing festive manicures!!  I cannot wait to see what everyone has done!

For my manicure today, I just did a mixture of designs that I've done in the past.  Really nothing new as my creative juices weren't flowing too well.  Regardless, I really loved how they turned out!

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • FingerPaints - Grassy Knoll
  • Orly - Bling
  • Sinful Colors - ShamRockin
  • INM - Northern Lights Gold
  • Rainbow - 6 different polishes
Grassy Knoll from the FingerPaints Picnic in the Park collection is the perfect St. Patrick's Day green!  I am loving this polish (and all the other polishes from this collection).  It applied perfectly in two coats, and with a top coat of INM Northern Lights in Gold, it just was stunning.  Can I wear green polish every day without getting weird looks?

The shamrocks are just adorable in my opinion.  I used green acrylic paint because it's easier to work with, and when I got around to putting the shamrocks on my nails, it was close to midnight.  What's great about acrylics, is that if you mess up, you can quickly "erase" your error with a damp washcloth/napkin and start all over.  I had to remove the shamrocks twice before getting them just how I liked them.  I think they turned out perfectly!

Orly Bling is the perfect St. Patrick's Day pot of gold color, don't you agree?  I added a top coat of ShamrRockin by Sinful Colors on top of it, because I felt like it tied the whole manicure together.  The light green, dark green, white, and gold.  It just all blended together.

My favorite nail though is the pot of gold.  I love doing the rainbow gradient and actually getting it to apply perfectly on the first try.  It's kind of a pain fitting all 6 colors on the make up sponge, then getting it to successfully transfer on the nail.  Then reapplying it to make it darker and lining up the sponge in the exact same spot.  It's a science, but I think I mastered it!

What do you think?  Fan of the manicure?
