Late St. Pat's Mani

Of course I had to celebrate St. Patrick's day with a couple green manis! This is the first one. I used a BC and two coats of China Glaze Starboard. This is different than any other green I already own, not sure if I liked it on me or not...I then stamped with plate m73 and China Glaze Midnight Kisses and free-handed some gold shamrocks with Sally Hansen nail art pen in gold. 

I had a hard time working with this, it didn't seem to flow very well. I may have to try letting the base dry longer next time. I topped everything off with a coat of China Glaze Fast Forward. It seems like a lot of the blogging world rocked a green mani on Thursday, did you?


  1. I love my green mani's - i did a few st paddy manicures..but i love yours hunny! i need that green!


  2. Great mani! I think the blogging world rocked a lot of green manis and makeup on Thursday!

  3. Sadly I didn't rock any manicure this past week! I had to give my nails a break.
    I have had nothing but grief from SH Nail Art pens. Have you tried many others?
    I do dig that green. It reminds me of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Going Green from your pics.
    Thanks for sharing, yo. Hope you had a great patty's day.

  4. Sarah ~ Thanks luv! I had to rock the green for a few days, it's a pretty color just not sure if it goes with my skintone

    Peach ~ I <3 how everyone is so festive

    Thanks much Lacquer, Chell!

    JQ ~ That's good you're nursing them back to health, the pink pen stained my table bc all the polish dropped out so no, I haven't had much luck either. I indulged in a few Irish Car Bombs, hope yours was great too!
