Happy Saint Patty's Day!!!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day, everyone! I hope you are wearing your green today! This post will be a little quick because I've got some brownies cooling that are awaiting a nice coating of green icing! My manicure for today is two coats of Sinful Colors Irish Green with a coat of Sinful Colors Green Ocean over top.

Green Ocean has become a really popular polish in the nail blogosphere. The flakies of Green Ocean are so pretty, giving a nice sort of blue topping to the green of Irish Green. I used two coats of Irish Green, but since it is a jelly, it would have needed a few more coats to be opaque, but you can't really tell with the flakies added on. :D

I hope you enjoyed this mani and enjoy your St. Patty's Day!!! Happy painting!

Bahamas Cruise Mani! Del Sol Electrick! and Milani Blue Flash

I got back from my first ever cruise this weekend and I had a blast! It was my spring break, so Will thought it would be a good idea to take me for my first cruise on the Monarch of the Seas. It was so much fun!

In the spirit of it being all bright and sunny in the Bahamas, I used color-changing Del Sol Electrick! with Milani Blue Flash for the freehanded tips. Electrick! is a nice light blue frost that turns to a light green frost in the sunlight, but unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of it in the sun because I was so busy with all the cruise activities! Blue Flash is one of Milani's one coat glitters, and I'm telling you, it was packed with blue and some silver glitter!

The mani shots make Elecktrick! look more silver than it is... The bottle pics are more color accurate. 

I hope you enjoyed this mani as much as I did! I got so many compliments with it from friends. Till next time... Happy painting!
