St Patty's Day

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a lucky St. Patty's Day (for those that do celebrate SPD) and for those that don't, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Today is a belated post, as I had intended to post it yesterday (ahhh, good intentions.........) but ever onward with the posts, and today I have two manis to show you, with a hint of a review.
First up is my first St. Patty's Day manicure that I did which is kind of Frankenstein of spring/easter/st pattys day. lol
I started with a thick coat of Sinful Color's Sugar Rush, which is a simply beautiful light cotton candy cream blue. This applied wonderfully, and was mostly opaque with this one coat, clean up was easy and no staining.
Then I did a gradient with SC's Cotton Candy and Orange Cream and added a little sparkle with Orly's Shine On Crazy Diamond.
And as I was loading my pictures on PicMonkey to edit, I discovered that the picture I took in my light box of the finished mani didn't end up in my camera roll on my iPhone, yet one that I did later that day to show some friends did. So this is the final mani, I used China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise to stamp with Shanty pate 12, then filled in the stamp to make it bigger, and applied a crystal from a Stella pack I got from a birthday nail mail. 

 Ok, now for the real deal St Patty's Day mani. Prepare your jaws my lovlies, cause I used two coats of Space Junk by  Nail Sauce  (from her last release; yeah baby, I was smokin fast on that checkout button) with three coats of Cult Nails Blaze on my ring finger. I used my handy dandy SH-12 stamping plate with Sinful Color's Snow Me White to stamp my thumb, ring finger, and pinkie, which I filled in with SMW on my pinkie and thumb, while filing in my ring finger with Sinful Color's Mint Apple.
My top coat of choice for this mani was two luscious coats of Posche.   
 What did you all do for your St. Patty's Day mani? Post a link in your comments, I want to check them out! :-)
