❣ St. Patty's Day Nails: Strawberry Shortcake ❣

Friday, March 13, 2015

While The Grinch is one of my holiday favorites, I've always had a more complicated relationship with the true "green holiday". Why, might you ask? Well, green clothing tends to wash me out. As much as I humor myself in acting like an Irish grinch occasionally, even I will add a hint of green here or there to celebrate St Patty's. With the holiday upon us next week, this year I opted for some "washed out" green nails. St Patrick's Day meets Strawberry Shortcake. 
I used Essie in The More the Merrier  OPI Nicole in Enchantress, and the discontinued Sephora line for OPI in a shimmery green(also discontinued in my makeup collection as I used it all up!). 
I layered the Essie green first. 
Next, using the OPI Nicole pink, I speckled on pink. Two layers. 
 The shimmery green was next. 
As you can tell, I found a happy "Strawberry Shortcake" type of green color scheme that may not scream St Patty's, but what can I say, I'm a low-key grinch.
