St. Patty Patchwork

Okay, so I'll take a break from the Crackles *sigh* lol. Well since St. Patricks Day is coming up, isn't it, and I have a brand new St. Patty's Day polish from Five Below, I figured I should do a green Patchwork mani. For this I used OPI Gargantuan Green Grape, Funky Fingers Erin & Sinful Black on Black.

I started with 3 coats of Gargantuan Green Grape, 3, yep you heard right 3 freaking coats, man I forgot how much of a PITA this was. Oh well.


Then I taped them off, and added the Funky Fingers Erin. Such a pretty sparkly green, which I can say, I don't own anything like it. I then added a coat of SV.



For my final color, I added my fave go to black from Sinful. and another coat of SV


 I am loving this soooo much!!!! If you are looking for a How-To on this, I have one posted up above in my 'Tutorials' tab.

  23. Pretty sparkly green! Wonderful blog,Chloe. Perfect manikure again!

  24. When I tried to use the tape, it lifted my base coat. I THOUGHT I let it dry completely.. about 5 minutes or so before I tried to tape it off (and yes I dabbed it on my palm a few times to get the stickiness off)... How long do you normally suggest to wait before taping off the nail? OH, and how do you do such a perfect cleanup job around your cuticles?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Beautiful manicure. I have a similar colour on. May I try out your mani on my nails?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks girls!!!

    Kellie, did you use a quick dry top coat after your base polish? That helps me tons. I use SV, and wait anywhere from 5-8 minutes. As for clean up, I actaully don't do any :) That is actually just how I polish.

    pkbmum, omg, of course you can try this out. This is teh main reason I do my blog, to hopefully inspire some and give out my ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Cute! How do you get the lines SO perfectly straight? Whenever I try to do this the polish bleeds under the tape :P

    ReplyDelete
  28. your fimo clay demo and this mani inspired me (you have a way of doing that lol!) I'm still quite new at this, but I thought i'd share :)

  29. I like it with just the greens best, but either way, this is awesome!

  30. Anon, It's all about making sure your ends of the tape are 100% down. In my 'Tutorials' tab up above, I show you exactly what I mean :)

    Julie, Oh yay, I can't wait to check it out!

    ABOP, yeah me too, kind of, but for some reason I can't seam to leave my black out of most my manis, lol.
