St. Patty's Day

I didn't really get into St. Patty's Day this year.  I didn't feel like going all out with nail art and drawing things.  I figured a simple green mani would do.  But then it was boring, so I added a glitter gradient, hehe.  I like it!

This is 3 coats of Avon Jade with OPI Glow Up Already on the tips.  The Avon went on ok, good coverage but it was a little streaky.  I like the color because it's green, but it's on the blue side, which is my favorite.  I love teal, so the bluer greens are more my speed.  To do the glitter tips, I practically wiped it dry before putting it on so it would be more sparse.

It looks greener in this shot.  I wound up really loving this mani.  I like the glitter tips, it gives it a little pizazz without being obnoxious, lol.  And it's really easy to do, so that helps, lol.  Plus I always think glitter helps with wear.  So this mani lasted a good long time.

Just for fun, haha.  I had this duck on my desk, so I picked him up for a pic.  Isn't he cute?  Hehehe.  Happy St. Patty's Day!!
