Creative musings in bright colors

I got lucky again! A few weeks ago, I won a St Patrick’s Day giveaway hosted by Manicurator and Salon Perfect…and now I have 6 awesome St Patty’s Day colors! Of course, the first thing I had to do was recreate the absolutely stunning manicure that Manicurator did using the same colors. It was so good I was going to try to recreate it ANYWAY…but the addition of a bright neon green certainly helped 😀

You can see Victoria’s original art here but I think mine is a pretty decent recreation! I’ll be going through each color in separate posts (with swatches and all that jazz) except the white. I used it as the base here…it took two coats. There really isn’t much to say about a white creme!

The circle glittery bits were placed not painted, and I have yet o see if they actually go on dense enough to use as a regular top coat. All tone others were alright, although the gold was a bit runny! The posts for the teal and the green will be up next week.

Of course, since I did this mani, all my fingers are now tiny nubbins, so I am trying to wait to swatch the remaining polishes until I have a bit more nail left. Ugh. My nails are so broken and sad! (They are so short right now that I actually rounded the edges to try and preserve SOME length. I very much dislike rounded nails on me!!!) Regardless, I hope you enjoyed! Thanks again Manicurator and Salon Perfect for the giveaway!
