Sparkly Minty Goodness

After yesterday’s post, I went with the green minty goodness. I’m so glad I did, because I love how this looks!

This is after two coats of Sally Hansen’s Mint Sorbet:

This is flashing a bit cooler than it is in real life. It is much warmer.

This is with a thick-ish coat of I Love Nail Polish’s Up to Snow Good, and two coats Seche Vite. Up to Snow Good is absolutely so pretty – it is a clear base with very small holographic glitters, small white circle glitters, hexagonal white and green/iridescent glitters, white and dark green square glitters, and white shredded glitters. I used one thick-ish coat, but I think I should have used two very thin coats, followed by a coat of Glitter Food and then Seche Vite. But as I did this last night before bed, I wanted to make sure it dried.

This combo looks so pretty and springy on my nails, I can’t stop looking at them!

  1. Excellent! I love how those turned out, mint is so scrumptious lookin. Hey, I was wondering if you’ve tried one of those DIY gel manicure systems. It seems like the one that’s getting pretty good reviews is Sensationail. I’ve seen it at Walgreens and am thinking I really want to invest in trying it. The look and last of gel nails is just so attractive! Thoughts?

    • Kim, I haven’t tried one, but I’ve seen them around. From what I understand, they can be hit or miss; but I haven’t heard about Sensationail yet. I’m not into the gel thing – simply because I like changing my nails too often! LOL! If I thought I would want to leave on a color for a week or so, I’d probably give it a shot. If you do try it, let me know how it goes!

  2. I always loooove minty green polishes, but I feel that they bring out a lot of red in my skin so I feel like I have lobster hands! Snow Good looks great over this base.

    • Nail Pattern Boldness, an indie nail polish, makes Glitter Food. It will help fix sinking glitters; or it can help smooth out a glitter coat, so you don’t have to use as many clear top coats.
