NOTD: St. Patty's Day! Green Ocean over Carribean Frost

**EDIT: BTW let me know how this layout works for you. I changed it from yesterday b/c it was too hard to see. I wanted to be able to see what I have behind my tables, so I made it a little transparent. Let me know in the comments. TIA***

Here we are, Ladies. This is two coats of Wet 'N Wild Carribean Frost, which went on smoothly. Then another two coats of Sinful Colors Green Ocean, then a topcoat.

I'm not too crazy on the close-up appearance of it, but from far away it is stunning.
All of the following pics are taken in sunlight.

Close-up it looks choppy and like it has gouges, which it doesn't. That's just the Green Ocean, it has some big chunks in there.
There was a good amount of tip wear and chipping. Which might be from the Wet 'N Wild or the fact that there are too many coats? Not too sure.
Anyways...Happy St. Patrick's Day!! Is anyone going to have some green beer tonight? I know I'm not, :(

I think I may have picked up this Wet n' Wild color on my mini-road trip to Philly last Friday. I'll have to check my polish bin. I think it's pretty cool. The Green Ocean is hot. I still haven't been able to find it yet.

I think I'll have some green beer this evening. Only one though. :)

Great mani girl!! That green ocean was really hard for me to capture on camera too. It looked like their were gouges or something in my nails. But IRL - its so nice and flashy :)

I probably won't be having any beer tonight, but you never know!

I like the background EXCEPT that you can see it on the pictures. I wish the pictures were "opaque" (I guess that's the word). Other than that it looks FAB! Keep up the good work sister blogger!

The Pretty Brown Girl-
This Wet 'N Wild surprised me! I thought I was going to have to do a TON of coats!
I got lucky with Green Ocean. I had been scouring(sp?) the Walgreens for sales and I bought the last one for St.Patty's.
Have a great holiday!

Brooke-It def looks like gouges close up! Not cool and it kinda flakes off a bit, which I don't like at all!
If u have a beer drink one for me!
Yeah I think I have the code for that, but then I'll have to go around and find all the pics. Boo!
Have a great holiday!
