MS awareness Mani and Saint Patrick Mani

This one is a doozy....its actually 2 manis in one post. This past week I did two very special manis. One was an orange mani for MS awareness and the other was a festive glittery mani for Saint Patricks day :)

 
I like them both :) lets start off with the orange mani..



When one of my friends on facebook talked about doing orange manis for MS awwareness I immediately agreed... also orange is the color for Kidney Cancer awareness so I felt that this was really meaningful.


For the orange I immediatley gravitated to OPI's Y'all Come Back Ya Hear? and it was perfect! Juicy jelly and gorgeously opaque-ish in 3 coats...for the accent fingers I chose Maya Cosmetics- Like A Boss which is a nude-y peach but has a subtle holo-ness to it..






I thought the orange was lacking a little something so I ended up topping it with Northern Lights Hologram Top Coat in both the silver and the gold... I love the subtle-ness of it but the glittery holo is still noticeable.





 

Then it was Saint Patrick's day and I totally wracked my brain for a suitable mani. I knew I wanted to do green obviously but I didn't want to go dark green...I wanted to go pastel :) So I used 2 coats of Zoya's Neely and then topped it with a layer of Lynnderella's She Lived in A Swamp. Then for the gold fingers I used Zoya's Ziv topped with Julep's Oscar and Vivien for more depth. I also used the same Nothern Lights top coat for the gold nails to give it some more oomph!




You can see the depth and some of the holo-ness of the gold :)





Some macros of the nails :) I love the complexity of the Lynnderella with the gold mix that I used..

Hope you liked these two manis as much as I did...oh and did you enter my giveaway yet? it ends in 12 days ;) Enter here
