After a long, LONG selection process with my collection of over 40 green nail polishes, I came to two conclusions:
1) Essie Navigate Her and OPI Jade Is The New Black were the clear winners.
2) I need more pale green nail polishes in my stash!
In any case, I absolutely love the way these two colors play together. I wanted both colors to be cremes, and I didn't want them to be too dark or too light -- but just right. And these two definitely are! I was planning on creating the dots with a bobby pin, since I didn't own a dotting tool ... but, lo and behold, I went to Ricky's last night and found a whole nail art kit, complete with dotting tool! The dotting tool definitely made placing the polka dots incredibly easy. I wanted each nail to be different, and there was really no rhyme or reason to the dots -- I just dotted wherever I saw fit!
I think the end result is fun, whimsical and perfect for St. Paddy's Day. And, yes, I know it's a little early, but I'm already in the spirit! Are you planning on doing anything fun on your nails for St. Patrick's Day? Let me know in the comments!
