St. Patrick's Day Manicure: Orly Monster Mash and Sinful Colors Irish Green



Sinful Colors Irish Green (3 coats)



Orly Monster Mash (2 coats) over Sinful Colors Irish Green (3 coats)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I spent the day in Charlotte going to Ikea and Trader Joe's. You know what that means...I got a new Helmer! Now I can finally put all my nail polish away. 

I was really happy with this manicure and I thought it would be the perfect green combination for St. Patrick's Day. The base is Irish Green from Sinful Colors which is a kelly green jelly. Since it is a jelly, it is a bit sheer, but it was mostly opaque with 3 coats. Despite being sheer, the formula was actually pretty great. Next, I put 2 coats of Orly Monster Mash which is a glitter bomb of green and gold glitter (hexagonal, bar and microglitter) with a sheer green base. I think this works best as a layering top coat because it would be really hard to build up the opacity. I know this post is a bit late in the evening, but I hope you had a great day and wore a green polish!

Love this polish combo. I have irish green and I honestly only really wear it during march. Sounds like you had a busy day, know that feeling!
