St. Patrick's Day Mani. and Green Spam Part Two!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! I hope you are wearing your green today! ;-) I have the second part of my green spam to show you today. Since this is going to be kinda long again, I'm going to get right to it.

To start off with, here is my actual St. Patrick's Day mani. I used Sinful Colors Irish Green as the base,Ulta's Pinata-Yada-Yada on my ring finger and Nicole by Opi Twist of Fate on my pinky finger. On my middle finger I used stickers that I found at Sally's Beauty.

Sinful Colors Irish Green. IG is a very bright jelly green. Almost neon, but not quite. It is VERY sheer. I had to use five coats to get it to look like it does in the pics. and I could still see my nail line. It's a really pretty color. I just wish it wasn't so sheer.

The next mani. is one I also did today. It's pretty similar to the first one, but I just wasn't feeling it. It's okay. I used China Glaze Four Leaf Clover as the base,Amour Rain Glitter on my ring finer,Milani Gold hex on my pinky and sally's sticker on my middle finger.

Next up is Nars Zulu. Zulu is a deep forest jelly green. I used three coats, and application was pretty good. A little streaky, but with a color this awesome that's okay. ;-)

Zulu with Sinful Colors Call You Later on top. Call You Later is a mixture of different sizes of green glitter. It also has some gold glitter in it as well.

Nubar Reclaim. I posted this a few posts back, so you can see it there for a review. I'll just say, its one awesome polish!! :-)

BB Couture Frosty Meadow. FM is a green jelly with silver and green glitter. Application was wonderful and this is two coats. This is another one of my fav. green polishes. It's pretty near perfect! :-)

Close up....

China Glaze Sour Apple. SA is bright green jelly, with lots of green,yellow and silver glitter. It reminds me of those Apple suckers that come out around Halloween. Or maybe the color of an apple jolly rancher. The formula was a bit thick, but nothing too bad I used three coats.

Here is Sour Apple with Sinful Colors Green Ocean. Green Ocean is a clearish green base with flakies. It is a really pretty polish, but you have to work with it. It's VERY thick, and the flakies tend to want to stick out on the nail. I didn't have to much patience this time, so I ended up taking it off. This is with two coats of GO.

Whew!!! That was quite a few pics. I apologize if it seems like I flew this this entry. I'm kinda in a hurry to meet some friends, and I feel like I've been doing nail related things all day long! LOL! If you have any questions about any of the polishes I posted, feel free to let me know.

I hope you have a wonderful evening! I'll leave you with some yummy cupcakes! ;-)
