Happy St. Patrick's Day! my siblings are visiting the beach, so i got spend some time with them today.... so wonderful! that's why my post is super late :)
my St. Patty's manicure is... green glitter! I used two thick coats of Zoya Rina (which was all i needed to give the effect of full opacity!) ..... over OPI Jade Is The New Black. Zoya is comprised of lots of green micro- green with some green bar glitter and tiny smattering of holo bar glittering. i am a little disappointed because the holo bars were more noticeable in the bottle. the color is a saturated, warm kelly green (makes you think of the lush grass in Ireland).... it's beyond perfect for a party day mani! the only downer is that parts of the polish dried rough because of the bar glitter. as with all bar glitter i've used, parts of it hung off the nail tips, despite my best efforts to push it back. After two coats of Seche Vite, most of it was smooth, but i did have a couple nails that had slightly jagged tips. as always, this glitter cannot be done justice in a photograph!
one coat Seche Base, one coat OPI Jade Is The New Black, two coats Rina, two coats Seche Vite.
tomorrow my husband and i are going horseback riding, i can't wait! do any of you have big plans for tonight? drinking any green need? Ria :)
