Nails of the Week #73: St. Paddy's Day

It's St. Patrick's Day week so naturally I wanted to go for a holiday themed manicure. I contemplated drawing clovers, or sporting a shockingly green look but after staring at my nail polish collection for awhile, two polishes happened to be placed next to each other and they were just the perfect pair. This year I went for a more simple and chic spin on things, even go as far to say it's not very holiday but I love how it turned out.

For the base coat on all my nails I used Formula X in Alchemy II for a nice mixed metal gold. Then on some accent nails I brushed on Formula X in Maniacal this gorgeous apple green matte flakes. This top coat is tricky to work with, it's hard to get the flakes to lie flat but with some painstaking patience I managed to make it acceptable for a subtly St. Patrick's manicure.
