St Patrick's Day Nail Art and Color Club Kismet Swatches

Happy St Patrick's Day everyone! I wasn't really that keen on doing a St Patrick's day manicure because I didn't feel like wearing green and I wanted to try my new 2013 halo hues.  But seeing as I am half Irish by blood I thought I'd compromise and I did both :D

I used the beautiful Kismet as a base.  I'd describe it as a golden holographic polish with a hint of green to it.  Application is amazing, I didn't have to do any clean up.  I used two coats but it covered pretty well in just one! I've taken swatches below with my LED daylight bulb so you can see how strong the holographic effect is as we don't have any sunshine here in the UK! I've also taken some in daylight shade.  As you can see it looks beautiful even outside of direct sunlight!

For my St Patricks mani I used my acrylic paints and microbeads.  I really am loving microbeads at the moment :D

What do you think of Kismet? If you want to get your hands on it in the UK, visit the wonderful Sally Magpies! I picked up 4 from the 2013 collection so I have another 3 to show :)
