Base Coat: Sally Hansen Double Duty
Base Color: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails in Sheer Vanilla
Layer Color: Sinful Colors in Irish Green
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Natural Shine
I don't have too many base coats that I love, so I use the Double Duty strictly as a base coat. Also, I knew from consulting my nail wheels that Irish Green is kind of a neon color and definitely a bit on the sheer side. I thought putting down Sheer Vanilla as a base would help some.
I didn't wait long enough for the polish to dry and seriously smudged a few toes...but it's March and it's still sock / closed toe shoe weather here, so no biggie.
Base Coat: Seche Wear
Base Color: China Glaze Flying Dragon (neon) from the INK collection
Layer Color: Sinful Colors Green Ocean (flaky glitter how I love you!)
Top Coat: Seche Vite
My Seche duo (buy 1 get 1 free!! Thanks Sally Beauty Supply!) is my go-to base/top for glitters. I especially love the thick sealing and smoothing effect of the top coat over coarse glitters.
I have quite a few Sinful Colors polishes, but it wasn't until this month that I finally spotted Green Ocean in a St Patrick's Day display!! Yes! My second purchased flaky glitter (and a steal of a deal at only $1.99!).
I tried to get a variety of shots in different lighting to show how gorgeous the Green Ocean is over Flying Dragon....it is quite an eye-catching green-to-teal-to-blue effect over Flying Dragon's smoking hot purple with shimmer. Note: Flying Dragon is a neon so it dries pretty matte....I was inspired to use this as a base color by @Nailsbyasami and her amazing Space Nail. Thanks Asami!
