Tomorrow is Saint Patrick's Day, which back in North America usually takes the form of a day of debauchery, drinking, and plenty of "Kiss Me, I'm Irish!" t-shirts. In honour of St. Patrick's Day, I've decided to take a bit more of an understated approach to celebration. Yay for green nails!
I scoured my extensive nail polish collection for a perfect green nail polish and settled on Barry M.'s Gelly Nail Paint in "Key Lime." Barry M.'s nail paints aren't available in the US or Canada, but if you venture over to the UK it's definitely worth picking up one (or four...or ten...). To say I'm obsessed with this formula would be putting it mildly. It's super pigmented, usually only needs two coats, stays on forever, and has the most beautiful glossy shine. The best part? It's all for the low price of £3.99 at Boots and Superdrug!
"Key Lime" is such a fantastic green. It certainly is lime, but it's a muted version, so it isn't too much of an in-your-face lime like a lot of nail polishes in this hue tend to be. It took me 2 coats to get this lovely shade and opaque, shiny finish. This is my third day wearing it, and it still looks close to perfect!
Have you tried the Barry M. nail paints? What is your favourite green this St. Patrick's Day?
