We'll start with Old Green River~!! I am in love with this one!!
Chels described this as: This St. Patrick's Day polish is very unique! It is a green polish but with a blue undertone. "Old Green River" was inspired by the dyeing of the Chicago River which started in 1962!
This is ONE coat. No top coat in these first few pictures. Can you say GORGEOUS!? I mean talk about a quick mani. It almost has a matte look to it, and the shimmer is just stunning!
Then I added a coat of Wicked Fast top coat by Cult Nails. This almost enhanced the glow, making it seem deeper. Either way, I love this polish. It applies perfectly and with this coverage, I know I'll be grabbing this often.
It has a perfect gold shimmer!
I then added one coat of Kiss Me, I'm Irish! over top and for the accent finger, one coat of Irish Brawn, finishing with Seche Vite top coat (matte glitter is a little more rough, but oh so pretty!). These three are the St. Patrick's themed polishes and I love the look of them together!
Chels described Kiss Me, I'm Irish! - This polish is an easy going full coverage glitter. You can use 2-3 layers to get full coverage or use one over another color to pump up your St. Patty's Manicure!
You will find matte micro glitters in greens and white in a clear base.
Love this mani!! Especially how the Old Green River peeks through both of the other polishes!
Here is the bottle of Kiss Me, I'm Irish! This applied great with one coat to get this coverage.
Irish Brawn was a little harder to layer because I didn't want too much on the nail, but enough to cover without streaking (I find that with any black jelly). It leveled out nicely and I love how it turned out.
Here is Irish Brawn by itself with 2 coats and Seche Vite top coat.
Chels described Irish Brawn: This polish was made to signify the amazing strength of the Irish Immigrants here in America.
This is a nice black jelly packed with three different green glitters including the always awesome round glitters!
MORE circle glitter!! yay!! I love the mix of sizes in this too.
Close up! Sorry it is kind of blurry!
Next we have Cool Breeze!
Chels described Cool Breeze: A teal/green holographic shade with specs of neon blue shimmer.
The blue was hard to capture, but so pretty in person! The first couple of pictures are my light box and are very color accurate. I started taking the next few in my bedroom/kitchen to get some holo, so I had to adjust the color because it was off. Sorry about that!
Here is some of the holo!! So beautiful!
Close up! Blurred to show holo!
And a light box close up! I can sort of see the blue towards the end of the nail!
