Nails of The Day: Green with Metallic Silver Triangular Designs


I don't know if you've noticed but I've been on sort of a green kick lately. I saw this specific color when it first came out as part of the Spring 2012 collection I believe. For some reason I just skipped right over it. Perhaps I just couldn't imagine myself wearing a bright neon green. I went on a crazy nail polish shopping haul this past Friday and both of these colors were a part of what I picked up. Maybe it's the fact that Pantone named it color of the year but I am just crazy over any shade of green all of the sudden so get ready to see alot of it here. The silver color was part of this Fall or Winter's collection and I have been wanting it ever since it came out since I just love anything metallic or sparkly! You probably already know how much I love Opi Golden Eye and I didn't have anything with a metallic silver glitter to it so It was really a must have.



You have also seen quite a few Essie polishes here with my Nail of the Day Post's and that's just because when I find something that works for me I stick to it and Essie does such gorgeous colors that last pretty nicely time and time again. I do try several other companies but Essie is just my favorite. Ok so I know the green won't be everyone's taste for wearing on the nails but you'll have to at least admit that it is the most gorgeous color. And those names! How cute is "Mojito Madness" and "Beyond Cozy" for nail polish names?! 



As you may have also noticed I finally went to an actual manicurist and got my cuticles trimmed. So I didn't apply this cool design by myself and after watching her do it I'm not so sure I would attempt to. Hmmm all it really takes is a thin brush to make the lines and then the rest is just filling in. Maybe one day I will try and get adventurous with it. Also for my pedicure I chose the Silver shade to be put on my toes. I'm not going to show those here but I can tell you that I think they look awesome! 


So anyways this is my manicure for the Pesach holiday which starts tonight and I have the perfect light green Calvin Klein pencil dress to match it! I am here with my in laws in Miami and now that I can finally hear out of my right ear quite a few hours after landing I am super excited to get out and about. I hope to work on a fashion video for YouTube and some other fun projects but we'll see about that. In the mean time I will also not be able to post over Yom Tov but I will post a few extra posts here and there on the days that I can. So look forward to that!

Here's what I want to know: do you like these two shade choices & would you wear them yourself? Let me know in the comments form...I love to hear from you!!

Wishing you a very Happy Pesach/Passover holiday wherever you are!
