SinfulColors Shamrockin' - Revisited with (new) Wet 'n Wild


I've got another St. Patrick's Day mani to share with you!  While technically this is my NOTD (nails of the day), its getting more into the "remnants" phase of a mani since a couple of nails are bare now and a couple other have major chips.  This is why I normally don't comment on wear time - I rarely have a mani last more than 2-3 days before cracks and chips set in (especially when I've washed my hair - that's murder on my polish).

Anyway, this mani is utilizing 4 polishes, all of which are limited edition.  3 of them you might be able to find right now, but the other is from last year.  So let's get started.  Just like yesterday's post, I used Zoya Anchor base coat and NYC Grand Central Station quick dry top coat - I did wait extra time on my thumbs before putting the NYC.  Then a couple of coats of Gelous over the nails that have flowers.
Since my thumb is only really showing in the above picture, we'll start there.  I did 2 coats of Wet 'n Wild Tree Hugger and then used my Salon Perfect dotting tool to add dots with Wet 'n Wild A Latte Love.  I'll have more info and a review on Tree Hugger and A Latte Love in an upcoming post.

On my pinkies and ring fingers, I did 2 coats of Wet 'n Wild A Latte Love.  
On the rest of my nails, I did 2 coats of Wet 'n Wild Tree Hugger.
Then on my middle and index fingers I did a generous full coat of SinfulColors Shamrockin', fishing out a flower for each of my middle fingers.  On my pinkies, I fished out another flower then did a little glitter gradient with the rest of the glitters that were on my brush.
On my ring fingers, I used a coordinating glitter from SinfulColors called Galax-Sea in 2 "generous" coats.  Generous is in quotes since the base is so heavy that I had a hard time getting the glitters transferred to my nails.  I did some dabbing around to get a more even disbursement of the metallic green hexes and shards and opalescent square glitters.  Unfortunately, I did have bubbling with this glitter topper, even when I waited a few minutes between coats.  If/when I use Galax-Sea again, I'll have to try to remember to attempt applying this with a sponge.  Galax-Sea came out in the 2014 Holi-Dazzled collection.
I thought that the metallic green hexes and shards from Galax-Sea complimented the small metallic green hexes from Shamrockin' quite nicely.  And the opalescent squares take on almost a gold look, making it more appropriate for the St. Paddy's day holiday.  And for some reason, I've really been into using my dotting tool lately.  I like that it helps pull together the base polishes. 
Did you do any festive St. Patrick's Day nails?  Maybe a makeup look?  What would you pair these 2 glitters with?
