Anyway, here is my St Patrick's Day nails. I think the Color Club is "tried" - everything else is untried, and yes, I've had Pretty Edgy since I did that comparison WAY back at the beginning of this blog and it was STILL sitting in my untried drawer.
Basecoat: NailTek Foundation II (1 coat)
Color: Essie Pretty Edgy (3 coats)
Color: Kleancolor Green With Envy (1.5 coats)
Color: Color Club Object of Envy (1 coat)
Topcoat: Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat (1 coat)
Yes, that's a lot of coats, but I don't mind because this came out way better than I hoped it would. Pretty Edgy applied flawlessly. It was a tiny bit dustier than I expected, actually - I don't know if I'm just remembering it wrong, or it's changed slightly as it's been sitting untouched. Anyway, I knew I was glittering it up, so no big deal. Pretty Edgy was almost totally opaque in three coats.
Green With Envy has a very slightly green tinted base, or maybe the glitter is leaching out into the base a little. Whatever the cause, the end result was that it added just the perfect amount of yellow to Pretty Edge, making it the perfect St Patrick's Day green. It's a fairly chunky glitter - medium hex pieces, and a few tiny glitters, and of course I had trouble getting even distribution. So when I finished applying I wasn't totally happy with it, so I pulled out...
Object of Envy. I've worn this before and I think I felt like three coats would be reasonably opaque on its own. Anyway, I applied one coat over everything and it's PERFECT. The only thing I would do differently next year (and oh yeah, I'm definitely wearing this again) is apply Object of Envy before Green With Envy, so that the bigger glitter shines more.
