Twinsie Tuesday- Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Paddy's Day Polished Babes!!! Since it's Twinsie Tuesday, we decided to incorporate  the holiday into the theme for the week. Take a look at what I created below!

The focal point of this mani is this stunning green linear holo from Smitten Polish called Girl Sprouts. If you watch "The Big Bang Theory," you know what this polish name is referring to! LOL! Oh that Amy Farrah Fowler! Anyway, back to the polish. I used three thin coats of this beauty, as the formula was rather thin.

I created some simple, yet cute (IMO...but I'm biased) nail art using KBShimmer Goldie Rocks and some "small wavy chevron" Vynails by Royal Lacquer. The Vynails from Royal Lacquer were provided for review and this was my first time testing them. They apply nicely and have the perfect amount of adhesion to the nail. One thing that really stood out to me is that they did not lose their adhesiveness when I needed to rearrange them on my nails. This is even after moving them multiple times. Furthermore, the adhesion was just enough that they also didn't remove any polish from my nails, even though they weren't as dry as I would have liked.

I really like how these wavy chevrons came out! It's just a slight change from the traditional chevrons with straight lines, but I really like them.

Overall, I am super pleased with this design! I like how I was able to incorporate some nail art into this theme, while allowing the manicure to remain wearable for work on St. Paddy's Day (remember my definition of wearable to work is may be different from yours). I mean...I could wear some super crazy and out there nail art to work, but that's just not my style. The gold and green also remind me of University of South Florida, which is where I completed my first three years of undergrad. Sniff sniff...brings back so many memories.
