To all Who Celebrate, Happy St. Patricks Day!

Hello ladies,

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I don't usually do anything but I know there are others out there who do celebrate. For today's mani, I themed it around St. Patrick's day in a kind of abstract way, more of celebration than four leaf clovers and pots of gold.


I actually did a refresh over OPI's Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow Suede. I applied Wet n' Wild's Party of 5 glitters to my ring finger and thumb, then mattafied it with Essie's Matte About you.


Pretty cool looking huh, below is a close up of my thumb that can be enlarged to see how the matte glitter looks up close.


It reminds of a stained glass and Mardi Gras for some reason lol, definitely some sort of celebration.



Unfortunately as I stated in my last post, the matte finish didn't stay for too long. The finish for Matte About you did stay longer than OPI's, but by that point the mani didn't have the same effect anymore.

So what do you ladies think? What nail art or ideas did you come up with for St. Patrick's Day?

  4. loodie - aww, no probs :) I kind of applied on coat of the glitter then dippde the brush back in the bottle and blobbed it on to get as much glitter as possible. Do you have any tips for getting a good amount of glitter polish on the nail in one swipe?
