Twinsie Tuesday: St Patrick's Day Nails

I've got a lot of Irish heritage, but I must admit: St. Patrick's Day isn't a favorite holiday of mine. I'm not huge into drinking or crowds, so it's just not for me. But I still like to get into the spirit as best I can with some St. Paddy's nails, which also happens to be our Twinsie Tuesday theme this week!

I wanted to do something kinda funky for my green, so I chose Essie The More The Merrier, a slightly swampy lime green. Then to top it off, I used OPI When Monkeys Fly! You might remember this as a, I guess you could say, controversial polish when it first came out. A lot of people had taco glitter trouble with this polish, but my bottle didn't give me any issues. I thought the gold glitter hexes in it looked like coins from a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. :)


I wasn't 100% sure I'd like these two together, but they actually make for a fun pairing. I like that it's a bit different than what you would normally think of for St. Paddy's nails, yet it still fits into the classic holiday color scheme.

So there you have it: my take on green and gold for today's festivities! Have a safe St. Patrick's Day, everyone and remember: NEVER drink and drive. I know it's something we hear all the time but i figure another reminder can't hurt. <3 Have fun and rock some fierce nails today!

  1. I love that green base. Despite not being a fan of big glitters, I have to say that topper suits this mani to a T.
