Celebrating St Patty's Day with Lucky Tips Applied Over Don't Hate Me by XOXO Nails

St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time - a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic.  ~Adrienne Cook

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
~Irish Blessing

Here's to all my Ladies of the Nails on St Patty's Day!! 

Today I have featured two splendid green polishes that I purchased especially for this special day.

They are Don't Hate Me and Lucky Tips created by Elektra of XOXO Nails.  These are her Patty's Delight Collection.  You can purchase them together in a set or separately.  They are available in mini and regular sizes.

Don't Hate Me is a light green jelly with a tiny glittery sparkle added by green glitter.

Lucky Tips is a sheer lime green base with green, lime, white glitter.  

I completed my manicure with three coats of Don't Hate Me for my base.  This is a gorgeous green polish that stands on it's on.  A perfect summer mint green.  This one is my favorite of the two and is an absolute stunner.  I then applied two coats of Lucky Tips.  This completely changed the color of Don't Hate Me to a more chartreuse green color and with the addition of the darker green, green and white glitters made it just perfect for my St Patty's Day manicure.  I added one coat of my normal Porshe' top coat.  The end product is such a fun manicure and an absolute ringer for today!

This is the gorgeous Don't Hate Me!!

 She is a beauty....You cannot deny that!

 Don't you think this beauty would be perfect with your summer tan??

Here comes our glitter girl, Lucky Tips!!

 You can definitely see how she changes our base polish to an amazing chartreuse green!

This is why I love being a nail polish addict!!  What can be better than this?  The fun we have celebrating the holidays by decorating our nails!!  It is the best!!

The XOXO Nails polish line is available directly from her Etsy Shop.

I'll leave you with a St Patty's Day joke!

I wish that your day and night are filled with wondrous green glitter!

Hyperbole by Maya Cosmetics Layered Over Baker Street by Nails Inc

On this blog post I would love to escort all my Ladies of the Nails over to Baker Street.  Have you been down this street before?  This is my first time!!   This Baker Street is from the land of Nails Inc.  I must thank my angel Mimi of Mimi Manicures for including this stunning blue polish in my heavenly gift package from her.

Not to waste this amazing color on my nails; I went searching through my stash to select the perfect color combination to layer over it.  My sights immediately landed on Hyperbole by Maya CosmeticsHyperbole is a gorgeous sheer blue jelly base with pink, orange, chartreuse and blue glitters.  A perfect match to the fabulous Baker Street.

I completed my Baker Street manicure with just two coats.  Nails Inc polishes are just the perfect formulation.  One coat of Porshe' top coat completed my nails to a super shiny finish.   While out shopping Baker Street pulled attention to my nails and I received so many compliments.

I layered just one coat of Hyperbole.  The glitter flowed from the brush in a easy and consistent manner.  Then adding just one coat of Porshe' top coat finished this manicure to such a super brilliant shiny glow.

I love blue and this is one of my favorite swatches!!  Just gorgeous and attention grabbing!!

 The gorgeous Baker Street!!

Blue is just awesome...Isn't it??

 AND, here is the lovely Hyperbole!!

 So I hope you enjoyed this journey down Baker Street with the addition of Hyperbole!!

Thank you again my Mimi!!

Jupiter Aurora by Coco Allure over Kabaret by Nails Inc

While I'm still bathing in the beauty of Kabaret by Nails Inc I just couldn't remove it from my nails without taking advantage of it.  I do that to my nail polishes!! LOL

I recently made my first purchase with Coco Allure Nail Polish.  I choose Juniper Aurora which is a multi chromatic glitter nail polish with fine color shifting glitter. The color shift is amazingly gorgeous, shifting from green, to teal, then purple, and even burgundy and hints of copper!

This, my friends is a stunning combination...a match made in polish heaven!!  The gorgeous navy blue of Kabaret adds just one more delicious color to the mix!!

I applied two coats of Juniper Aurora over Kabaret.  I actually could have completed my manicure with just one coat and it would have been awesome but I'm that kind of girl that more is always better so the additional coat was added.  One coat of Porshe' top coat was added to finish.

I think you are going to enjoy this stunning rainbow effect!!

 This is our rainbow little lady, Jupiter Aurora!

 I wonder if we can find a pot of gold at the end of this beauty?

 I think the pot of gold just might be our nails as the color is transferred from the bottle to our nails!

 I told you it was stunning!!

It is amazing!!  You will love this polish!!
