St Pattys Day: Mani and Pedi of the Day
Happy Monday Ya'll! It's not officially St. Patty's Day yet, but I wanted to be ahead of the game because it's going to be a jam packed day tomorrow. So, how in the heck do you go about choosing a green for St. Patty's Day? It's virtually impossible because greens rock.
The verdict - Claire's 3 in 1 Mixables in Technopop because it's cool and I just like it! Knowing me, I'll probably change my mani before St. Patrick's Day.
Claire's 3 in 1 mixables are pretty neato. You get three different colors in one bottle. No shaking or mixing required. Do you know how hard it is to not shake the bottle? I guess it's just habit, but it's pretty darn H A R D.
What I love about Claire's 3 in 1 mixable's - their mostly duochrome colors. You'll see various colors in different angles of lighting.
Technpop is describled aa a bright minty green duo that changes from green, purple and blue. And, has added holographic glitter for that ultra flair.
I have a boat load of Claire's swatches I'll be posting in the next weeks to come.
I really loved how my pedicure turned out. The black polka dots just pop on a neon base. What I used: Massini's Neon Greenlight and for the polka dots, Sally Hansen's Nail art pen in black.
The neon green is much brighter in real life compared to my swatches above. I really like Massini's neons because their opaque and you don't have to worrry about a white basecoat.
Hope you have a wonderful night and St. Patty's Day!
What's everyone wearing for tomorrow? Be safe!

Hi! *waving* I really like your mani/pedi. The black dots against the neon background is very sexy! I've seen those Claire's polishes before but never took them too seriously (I mean, it is Claire's & I am over 30...LOL) but maybe I'll send my daughter in the store to get one or two for me. ;) I'm wearing "San Francisco" by Sinful Colors today! :)
