No where in the US gets excited about St. Patrick’s Day quite like Boston! School is even closed on St. Patrick’s Day! So to celebrate the excitement that my new city has for the holiday of leprechauns and green beer, here are some of my favorite “Emerald Isle” greens.
An assortment of some of the emerald greens in my collection
China Glaze Jolly Holly - this one was a holiday release with a great shimmer
Rescue Beauty Lounge Recycle - one of the best creme greens ever made
Ulta Professional Urban Jungle - this is a great darker green with a slight shimmer
China Glaze Outta Bounds - a brighter green with tons of shimmer, this older color is a home run!
Zoya Ivanka - a true green with tons of gold glittery flecks
China Glaze Emerald Sparkle - a green glitter in a green base, like Ruby Pumps but in green
Deborah Lippmann Shake Your Money Maker - a dense chunky green glitter with gold holo glitter in it as well. I only did this on one accent nail since it is such a royal pain to remove (think 20 minutes of soaking). I’m still waiting to get a bottle of OPI Glitter Off Base Coat. Maybe then I’ll go for the whole hand!
Zoya Chita - if you are all about texture, this Pixie Dust polish is beautiful. It’s an emerald green with silver flecks.
My St. Patty’s Mani - two coats of Ulta Professional Urban Jungle as a base with China Glaze Outta Bounds striped on top. My nails are kind of short right now, and the stripe down the middle helps them look thinner and longer.
