OPI Color Paints review

OPI dipped their toe in the water of sheer, buildable color when they released the Sheer Tints Top Coats last year.

St Patrick’s Day Nails

I’m a strong believer that there is no such thing as too much green. St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect time to put that theory to the test. From my bright green loafers to my pool felt colored pea-coat to my Lucky Charms tee and shamrock accessories, I’m ready to be faux-Irish for a day.

This year, instead of doing nail art, I just want to wear a glorious new green that I’ve never used before. A deep dive into my Helmer unearthed Morgan Taylor Later Alligator. And with the perfectly-timed arrival of the Nicole by OPI Coca-Cola collection, my St. Patrick’s Day nails were born!
