The One With the St. Patrick's Day Glitter Gradient

Nothing to Disclose

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Polished World!  Hope you all are wearing your green today!  I wanted to have more designs for you this year, but time got away from me.  The amazingly awesome news though, my nails are finally longer, just in time for some Easter and Spring nail art!  I couldn't be happier.  Also, it's gardening season.  Sure, it's still cold here and we probably will get one more snow storm, but this weekend and next, I'm going to start my seeds!  It feels like just yesterday I was planting my seedlings for the year.  Time really flies, doesn't it?

Today's design is VERY simple for me.  It's not that I was uninspired when it came to St. Patrick's Day this year, I just didn't want to go crazy.  Very weird for me, I know, but something was just pushing me towards the simple.  The simple that I went with was a wonderfully green glitter gradient that I absolutely adored.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - Grinchworthy
While this is a Christmas polish, it is BEYOND perfect for St. Patrick's Day.  I'm not going to lie, I have yet to use this polish for a Christmas themed manicure.  To me it's just more of a spring green, and obviously St. Patrick's Day.  I absolutely love how it looks over the black.  It transferred from the makeup sponge to the nail like a dream.  I didn't have to fill in any blank patches, the green was super pigmented and showed up on the black base, and it perfectly blended from opaque to barely there.  The perfect glitter gradient.

So now that I've done a glitter gradient with something other than silver or gold, I'm kind of hooked.  I want to do this with purple, and pink, and every single glitter I own.  I need to figure out if I have any more bright glitters like this to try the look with.

What do you think?  Fan of this design?

Hope everyone has a safe, and happy St. Patrick's Day! 

Until next time, <3.
