St. Patty's Day Mani with China Glaze Four Leaf Clover + Medallion

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! I hope you're all wearing green today. Green is actually one of my favorite colors so I am all for a holiday requiring you to wear it. For my St. Patty's Day mani, I blatantly copied this mani from Glitter and Nails. Luckily I had China Glaze Four Leaf Clover in my stash already. And though I did not have CC Gingerbread, I made do with China Glaze Medallion which is a super sparkly cool toned gold glitter.

The formula on Four Leaf Clover was actually super watery and a bit hard to control. China Glaze is usually great so I was surprised by the watery texture. The color makes up for the difficulty though I may leave this open for a few minutes before I use it next time to see if I can thicken it up. Below is two coats with top coat. Medallion is a pretty dense glitter and I only needed two coats to get it this bling-y. Used two coats of top coat on it as well since it is gritty. 

I really like this combo and Four Leaf Clover is a really unique, blue toned green. I wish the formula was better but they color payoff makes it worth the trouble.

Anyone else have a St. Patrick's Day manicure? What's your favorite green polish? Happy St. Patty's Day!
