four leaf clover

this was my "green" for st. patrick's day this year. well, this and a shamrock & pirate's hat on my black Dropkick Murphy's concert t-shirt i wore too. how did you celebrate? i worked, went to the eye doctor, and hung out with my sister and watched american idol. awesome huh haha.

china glaze's four leaf clover came out with the up & away collection this spring. the whole collection was utterly divine, the brights being the stand outs in my opinion. this guy was no exception. notoriously hard to photograph though, i did my best to represent the almost-neon bright kelly green creme (with a little photo editing help). slides over the nail like butter, albeit a bit thick. i did end up thinning mine a little so i had more control. this is two coats w/ poshe topcoat. p.s. btw i've been using poshe lately since i've run out of my seche vite and i am surprised to say i REALLY like it! like a lot. hmmm i may be looking into switching...haha!
geezzzz this is a hard color to capture on camera. if you want a TRULY accurate swatch, which i'm sure you do, go head over to Asami's blog. she's got the skills that i lack when it comes to this guy (and a lot of other stuff haha!).

  5. Fantastic manicure. You have great photos. Love this shade of green. I hung out at home with my girlfriend. We had corned beef and cabbage from a diner. I usually make it myself. Think I will next year. The corned beef was really their meat they use in sandwiches. They took most of the taste out by boiling it or whatever they did. Cabbage was oily and mushy. I even bought extra cabbage. I just ate that for breakfast. Tasted worse than before. I wore Sinful Colors Show Me the Way which is an olive green. I just added a layer of Color Club's Under the Mistletoe this morning. I only had a tiny bit of wear on one nail. I'm really shocked by that. I just needed to do something different to my nails till I take this off.

    I had some staining with this as well and ended up buffing my nails after to get it off.
