Happy St. Patty's Day!

It's been a week since I posted last.. oh no! I was on spring break from classes this past week so you'd think I'd be able to catch up on blogging...but, nope! No classes means more work and even less free time. I have a few manicures I need to post and I usually do them in order but I'm mixing things up and posting my current manicure first to stick with the holiday!

It's sorta funny, green is my most favorite color but I hate green nail polish. I ended up using one of my only greens, Sinful Colors San Francisco. The only reason I still have this in my collection and haven't purged it is because I love love love San Francisco and have a dear aunt who lives close by. :-) I added Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday on top of the green because my best friend's birthday is tomorrow- killing two birds with one stone!

What I Used:
1 coat of OPI Nail Envy
4 coats of Sinful Colors San Francisco
1 coat of Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday
1 coat of Poshe Top Coat

 I'm totally digging this manicure! I just did a ton of baking/washing dishes and virtually screwed it all up already, so I'm glad I took pictures before that! This green is pretty but definitely not for me.. having to use four coats to reach opacity is not okay! I didn't mind, but for future manicures I'll probably skip this one. I'm most impressed with Happy Birthday. I seriously have a ton of multi-colored glitters like this but it. never. gets. old !!! I love them all so much!

I hope you all have a great St. Patrick's Day! I'm spending a good 18 hours of my weekend at work.. yuck, yuck, yuck! Have a beer for me so I can live vicariously through you! xoxo


  1. Pretty combo! Enjoy the holiday!! :)

  2. I thought of using my HB over whatever I put on my piggies or fingers. Instead I went with a green leaning opelesent on top of a deep green major sparkle that looks like it has glitter embedded in a lighter green. That's on my toes. I had a # of greens on my fingers all this week - right now because I cannot take time to pull off the green for a couple days and need to get wear out of what went on today (and I am one of those that thinks it's dumb to still be wearing a Halloween or St. Patty's the next day - I chose to wear a new line for me - the new Revlon Colorstay - it's supposed to last 11 days - and some shades I have I do get that wear lenght with a couple fresh overcoats and always new coats of SV. I have it on my fingers in a great green called Bonsai!It's a calm version of CG Cha Cha Cha. Have fun folks if you go out - don't drink and drive!
