Hangover Cure

Seeing as how it is the day after St. Patrick's Day you are either nauseated from seeing so much green or ... just plain nauseated.  Out of respect for the latter (and my own laziness) today I present more pictures and less words.  If you are sick of green, see ya next time ...


Nars - Night Porter

BIG BIG thank you to Emilie! Go visit her blog and give her lots of love.  She gives the best chocolate kisses!! ;)

She also has a YouTube channel

What a beauty (her and the polish! :D).  I really favor dark greens and this one is a complete WIN.






I failed to capture the glory.








Every time I wear it the sun hides. :(
I love surprises.  This $1 polish is pretty sweet.  Run do not walk to your nearest dollar store.







Nail Fetish - Storm

















Check out my stamp.  I hardly ever do this, mainly because I suck at it.


















China Glaze - Four Leaf Clover

















China Glaze - Passion in the Pacific.
Blue/Green shimmer.

A decent dupe of Rimmel - Green with Envy that I showed in my last green post.


Comparison:
The Rimmel has a much more obvious duochrome property.











CQ - Green Gem
This CQ is a weak holo with a weak green flash.






Two wrongs (or rather weaknesses) DO make a right, because I actually really like it.
Illamasqua - Kink

The glorious rubber look!













If you want a shiny look, slap on some top coat.















China Glaze - Outta Bounds



Comparison to Rimmel - Camouflage.  I showed that one here.


Quite obvious that Rimmel has a duo quality that Outta Bounds does not.







China Glaze - Watermelon Rind

This one looks better in person.  Unfortunately, it's very sheer so wear some green undies.






China Glaze - Turned Up Turquoise (neon)

It dries matte.













I like it shiny.  Sorry for my crusty cuticles.















Random: From Left to Right ...
Dark Green Franken - (Black + Color Club - Rebel Debutant)
Color Club - Rebel Debutant
China Glaze - Four Leaf Clover
China Glaze - Turned up Turquoise




What was your St. Patrick's Day mani?

  2. Night Porter! I have this and I forgot all about it! SMH. I wonder if this is the first warning sign that I have too much polish? Anyway, thank you for reminding me. Going to take of my current mani (ChG Starboard + RBL Locavore) and break out the Nars.

  4. I didn't do one! I'm not one to join the crowd as it were. I wear green a lot as it is! Hope you are feeling better! I thought of you yesterday when two of my nails ripped off down to the meat as you say. So I am sporting big time nubs. My nails feel funny! But I had to file them all down to rid the peelies

    Actually I spent the day gardening (or trying to do it) so despite my gloves my nails became soil brown :-P

  9. Did you find 4 leaf clover stained your nails? I didnt have that issue that I recall, but others I read complained how it stained badly.
