Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! I thought I would challenge myself today and see if I could write a post in an hour. I am stepping up my speed, (or trying to) and I thought, I’ll do something celebratory – St. Patrick’s nail art with Incoco Green With Envy. I bought this nail applique set last year at Walgreen’s along with Pot Of Gold and Happy go Lucky, which I posted lasted last year. I didn’t get to post this one then, so I thought I would do so now and unfortunately, if you are really into plaid and tartan, you can only get it on Ebay.
This year I am wearing ILNP Fall Semester. Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures in a lighter setting before the polish started chipping so I will have to do another manicure with this color. It really is gorgeous and changes color depending on the light. Here it looks like a forest green but it really is more of a teal. ILNP has the most gorgeous holographic and chrome polishes.
So my quicky post took me one hour and forty-eight minutes. Not bad. Have a super-duper great St. Patrick’s Day. I am staying home with lamb stew and red wine.
As promised, here is the swatch of Incoco’s St. Patrick’s themed nail polish appliqué in Pot Of Gold. It is a mound of fine and chunky gold glitter with a few green specks sprinkled throughout. The green glitter also picks up shades of teal, light blue, pink, and silver, lavender, depending on how the light catches it.
These were not as easy to apply as Happy Go Lucky most likely because there is a lot more chunky glitter. Even after several top coats of Pink Armor, it still had a rugged edge the next day. This also chipped right away because I didn’t immediately apply the top coat after application. Hey, there were some serious BBQ ribs calling my name and I had to answer. I assumed that because Incoco’s are concentrated nail strips with a base and top coat they would be more durable. Regardless, they last longer than any manicure I have ever had with traditional polish.
This appliqué might work as a heavy-duty top coat because you can see through it. As a matter of fact, I just might do that. However, it is dense enough to stand alone. This is a glitzy glamorous manicure and I would wear this if I were going somewhere special, without a doubt. Again, if you want to try these appliqués, you can only get them from Walgreens. Next up, Green With Envy.
