Anti-Pinch Manicure: Color Blocking

Saint Paddy's day is coming up. In an effort to not get pinched this year, I've done my nails for the holiday. Because lets face it, I hate getting pinched. Doesn't everyone? Getting pinched SUCKS! Therefore it was necessary to make this happen.

I decided to go with some color blocking for this manicure. I busted out the ol' striping tape and got to painstaking work. This mani took some time to finish, but I absolutely love it.


These nails took 5 different polishes. I had a few more greens to choose from, but I went with 2 cremes and 2 glitters. Plus the gold base.


The first picture was of my left hand and the second of my right. I like doing manicures where both hands are the same. How I wish I was ambidextrous. Think of how cool I could make things if I was.


From left to right, polishes used are China Glaze Gaga for Green, AEngland Dragon, OPI Glitzerland, Maybelline Color Show Tenacious Teal, and China Glaze Running in Circles. I also used Orly Rubberized Base Coat and Seche Vite Quick Dry Top Coat.


The photo above, really captures some of AEngland Dragon's holographic goodness. I wish I could have got a better shot of that pretty for you.


Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

P.S. Will you be doing an Anti-Pinch St. Paddy's Mani? I'd love to see it.

*all polishes in this post were purchased by me
