st. patty’s prepster manicure: rocking polka dots instead of glitter

yesterday i mentioned i went to get a mani pedi this past weekend with my friend amanda here in SF. we scored a great deal through travelzoo at a local nail salon in our neighborhood and sat there chatting while getting our nails done. it’s always so nice to sit back and relax with girlfriends, something i don’t do enough. anyways, i chose a fun green essie color called “pretty edgy” for my hands, and a pinky “california coral” for my feet. there was something that just didn’t sit well with using green polish on my toes, haha :)

amanda and i decided rather than rocking glitter on the party nail (what - you don’t call it a party nail?), we’d go with polka dots instead. i’m pretty happy with the end result - a prepster party nail, if you will. remember my strawberry toes from the summer? this was just a less extreme version :)

perfect timing for st. patty’s, too, don’t you think? i thought so, at least :)
