So, yesterday was a rare day for me at work: I didn’t have to wear all black! Because St. Patrick’s Day.
Naturally that meant I went full throttle with all of the green I could muster. I did a green sweater dress, did my eyes up in green and blue, and adorned my nails in all of the green and gold I had in my arsenal.
I’m still working on getting the Weather Deities to do right and bring the warm, and yesterday they gave me an almost 60 degree day!
Which turned to 36 degrees by the time I got off work.
Anyway, my nails were pretty popular at work because green and glitter and a four leaf clover!
I couldn’t quite get the water decal where I wanted it (ended up redoing that finger twice), but I love it! I have on…quite a few colors here, actually. The green is a combo of two greens. I did a flat green base from Sally Hansen called Kelp Out, then layered that with a shimmery green from OPI’s Hawaii collection called My Gecko Does Tricks. It goes on pretty sheer, and it took about three coats to make it opaque when I swatched it. So, I figured a green base would help give it the same opacity without all the layers. The gold is Orly’s Luxe layered with OPI’s I Reached My Gold. I got the water decals from Julep, and I always have studs around. These are from the dollar store. 😀
Of course, it took me about an hour at work to knock off three studs, but it was super pretty while it lasted.
I’m already looking forward to the tropical manicure I’m planning for vacation! There will be pineapples.
Happy Wednesday, folks! 😀
