You know, for St. Patty’s day!
I wanted to do something quick and easy but a little different, so I decided on a caviar manicure (check out my first caviar mani post here).
- Zoya Anchor Base Coat
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Green with Envy – bright green base coat
- Orly Luxe – gold base coat on each ring finger
- Martha Stewart Microbeads in Peridot (green) and Florentine Gold
- Seche Vite top coat
After a base coat on all nails, I painted on two coats of the green on every finger except for my ring finger on each hand. On each ring finger, I painted on two coats of Luxe. Then, I painted on a pretty heavy coat of the Seche Vite and immediately poured the microbeads onto the nail. Once you’ve got your nail covered with microbeads, press them down gently onto the nail to sort of smoosh (technical word) them into the topcoat so that they adhere and stay. Do one nail at a time and repeat the process as you go.
I took a few photos with the flash to show the sparkly-ness.
I don’t think D and I will be doing anything too special to celebrate the day, although we might have some corned beef and cabbage… YUM! Are you doing anything to celebrate St. Patrick’s day? Perhaps some fancy nail polish? I’d love to hear your plans!
