Paddy's Day Mani
I did this mani on Friday specifically for St. Patrick's Day March 17th. I started with another of my Korean polishes, this being Missha Crystal Nail Polish JBL01 Hot Green. This had green and blue sparkles in it making it a dark turquoise colour. This one had a brush similar to the Dior brush but the polish was gloopy so it was a bit more difficult to apply.
With one coat of Seche Vite, it became super glossy and sparkly.
And to make this mani into a Paddy's Day marvel I then layered one coat of Easy Paris Cosmetics #26 followed by three coats of Seche Vite to smooth it all out. Perhaps I should tell you, I buy the salon size of Seche Vite which allows me to use it with such gay abandon!
Easy Paris Cosmetics are a dollar shop brand and they have some really cool glitters. This one has large hex, smaller hex and small specks which shows up gold in the bottle all held in a green suspension base.
All the Paddy's Day manis I have seen have pots of gold somewhere plus a rainbow, I have gone for just the gold scattered all over my mani!
Unfortunately only one of the large hexs and one of the small hexs decided to show you their gold colour, bad mani!
Still only the one showing off.
And the out of focus shot, showing just how much gold there could be if you saw this in real life.
