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

Hi!
**purchased

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?
