St. Valentine's Nails!

These nails are both Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day, hence my St. Valentine's nails!  I had intiially set out to do Valentine's Day nails but wanted something out of the box so decided on green.  I wanted a brighter green than what I have here but with a smooshy base, you never know what you're going to get. Once the base was down, my first thought was, great base for St. Patrick's Day nails, but I didnt have any of those plates pulled.  So I decided to go back to a Vday mani and this is what I came up with!

Started with a stamper smooshy base using an assortment of greens and yellows that lean green.

I used a lot of polishes!

Topped with a base of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

This is Ms. Cindy.  Not a smooshy base but the same polishes just brushed on randomly.  Almost the same look.  You could barely tell the difference once the stamping was on.

Stamped using image from BM-XL  210 using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief.

Topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.  I had a bit of top coat smear which was irritating; I can't wait to receive the Apipila no smear tc to see how it works!

I redid my ring finger here because the smear was more than I could take - but didn't see the index finger was just as bad.  It doesn't help that there are horizontal downward brush strokes before the stamping!  Of course, the smear isn't that obvious  IRL, just in pix but bugs me still!

Thanks for looking!
