St Patrick's day nails

We're now on week 11 of the Year of Polish challenge! This time, we're doing St Patrick's day nails. How surprising I know!

I've never been a big fan of St Patrick's day. Green doesn't really suit me, so I rarely wear it. St Patrick's day was no exception and there was always one annoying kid in school who would actually go around pinching people for it... I'm also not a beer drinker. This leaves this holiday with little for me to actually enjoy. 

I do, however, have a free green shades of polish that rarely get to see the light of day. 


China Glaze in Gaga for Green
Model's Own in Emerald City
Sinful Colors in Green Ocean
Nail Sticker from 8ty8 Beauty


It's kind of hard to see Green Ocean but it is a really pretty green tinted jelly with large blue flakes. It's very thick and hard to apply but it adds a gorgeous effect.

Don't forget to check out the Year of Polish challenge page located below my profile picture to see some upcoming challenges as well as some links to blogs who are also doing this!

What do you think of St Patrick's Day?

Until next time ^_^

I share the same feelings when it comes to St.Patrick's day. Not a huge fan of green or beer, but a huge fan of Ireland none the less ^_^
Still this is a very cute mani. I love the glitter on top ^_^

I love the glitter gradient and the sticker! Emerald City is high on my wishlist! I like green but not beer and I don't know much about Ireland so I've also never been the biggest celebrator of St. Paddy's Day... but it is a good excuse to do a fun mani!

This looks great! You are seriously talented.

This looks so cool!! I can never get my gradients to look this good, yours looks great! I do enjoy St. Patty's Day, but it's a pretty big deal in my town so its always fun to go out and hang out with friends =)

Ireland is pretty awesome! Thanks Cel :)

Samantha said...

Thank you :)
Also, Emerald city is exactly like Color Club's Untamed Luxury which is much cheaper. you can probably find it at 8ty8 beauty!

Thank you Stephanie :)

Thanks Jacqui :) Even glitter gradients have a learning curve. I like to use very little glitter and slowly work my way to opacity at the tips
