St. Patrick's Day nail art created with Salon Perfect

Monday, March 2, 2015


Today I have for you a fun St. Patrick's Day nail art look created with a special collection from Salon Perfect. Four of the polishes are from the core line, and two of the polishes can only be obtained if you win a giveaway! (There's only 100 of these polishes.) They are custom-blended* polishes just for this giveaway. In other words, you can only own them if you win them. And the great news is -- twenty Set in Lacquer readers will win this St. Patrick's Day Collection. Yes, you read that right... 20 winners! The giveaway ends tomorrow, March 3, 2015.

But in the meantime, let's look at a couple of the polishes. I couldn't decide what look I wanted to go for, so I created a mixed mani. I used KBShimmer nail vinyls to create the stripes on the index nail.

For this look, I used Sugar Cube - a pure white cream, Loopy Lime - a neon green creme, Sham-rock Your Socks Off - a fun green and white glitter (which is one of the custom blended polishes), Escape to Neverland - A Peter Pan green creme polish and Gold Leaf - a metallic gold polish. If you just can't wait to see if you win these, you can purchase the polishes from the core line at Walmart.

This Color’s Making Waves

Of course this blue is my favorite of all. This ultra shimmery aqua blue polish is gorgeous. The shimmer adds amazing depth and dimension.
This is three coats with a top coat. I could have gotten away with only two coats. But I wanted to add just one more coat.

Pineapples Have Peelings Too!

This glitter polish has multiple shapes and colors of glitter swimming in an shimmery yellow gold base. This one just doesn't do anything for me. But the glitters applied pretty well. I think I just don't like the base color. I don't think it does much for the glitter. This is three coats with a top coat.
