Lucky potted gold nails

 Hey Ladies! Originally I was trying to do peacock nails but the more I looked at it the more it looks like St Patrick Days mani.  Now I know what to do when March rolls around LOL. I looked online to see what colors peacocks where and it was Green, Blue Gold and some purple but I tried the purple on my fake nail tester it did not turn out nice.  I didnt keep this mani on long maybe 20 minutes but I already wanted to try something esle. I think I would be more in the mood to wear this nail if it was st. patricks day. Doesn't look like potted golds ?

Anyway here is what I used:

  • Sally Hansen Insta Dri- Emerald express as a base coat! I love the Insta Dri polish from sally hansen...All I used was one coat and it was opaque enough. 
  • Zoya Ivanka to sponge on the tips of the nails to get that gradient effects with the green gold ( Click to enlarge photos)
  • Sally hansen set the stage- This  polish was okay.. it needed more glitter in it. If I was lucky I maybe get 1or 2 flecks.  So I just painted this on the tips so I can get the small flecks for better fading
  • used sally hansen gold glitter.. or milani jewl fx with those hexagon glitters would work well too .

I hope you guys enjoy this look and maybe bookmark it for St. patricks day!

  1. You only kept this on for 20 mins?? Daaamn girl! I like it too! How often do you do you nails? I try to keep mine on at least 2-3 days!

  2. Wooow, that's sooo beautiful! ♥♥♥
    My nails are short... okay, now they aren't but they will be, because I will grow out my gel nails... do you think this will look good on short nails? (:


  3. @ jesse @ jesse yeah it looked to holiday ish for me. I do mine every 1-3 days 1 day if I dont like what im wearing 3 days if I love what im wearing LOL

    But when summer is over and im back at school, I only do my nails once a week =]

  4. @natalie I think it would still look good girl.. my nails isnt that long.. I have very short nail beds and it still works. just dont bring the glitter to far down. Ive seen people do this look with shorter nails than mine and it looks good!
