Hi guys. It's the start of another week in terrible cold weather in Jersey. We had snow on the weekend, so I was pretty much stuck at home doing a lot of nothing. It's almost March and I cannot believe the kind of weather we're still having to deal with. Mother nature you're drunk, go home and take the snow with you. Speaking of March, our next holiday is almost among us... St. Patrick's Day! Today I will be sharing a lovely duo inspired by the Irish holiday from MTL Creations. Let's take a look at the swatches.
The St. Patty's Duo by MTL Creations will be available for purchase on February 26th. As always, this will be available for purchase as a duo or individually if preferred. Mark your calendars!
Magically Mint is a shimmering light mint green polish. I'm not normally a huge fan of shimmer finishes, but this one is subtle enough that it meshes well. That said, I wish the shade looked better against my skin-tone because it's truly beautiful. Soft and perfect for Spring too. Formula and consistency work really well, applying smoothly for the most part. It's a bit sheer in a single coat, so you'll need at least three coats for a fully opaque finish. If you have any ridges, then I definitely suggest using a ridge-filler base. Otherwise, it will be noticeable with how fragile each of the layers wear on your nails. A nice glossy topcoat is also a must for giving it that smooth finishing touch.
Floating Charms is a clear glitter topper filled with large black and green hexes, as well as small micro glitters. Of course, I had to pair it with the other polish in the duo! Together they are meant to be, if I do say so myself. The formula will require you to fish for the larger black glitters specifically. To compensate, Cherise will be offering a discount on this polish price. Personally, I didn't have to fish as much as I thought I was going to. I did have the bottle upside down for an hour before swatching to help with the sinking glitters.
Overall I definitely enjoyed both of these beauties from the St. Patty's Duo by MTL Creations. As I mentioned before, I do feel personally that the color doesn't suit my olive skin as much as I would like. Regardless, I think Magically Mint is definitely my pick from the duo. It's about those pastels for the Spring! Remember guys, the St. Patty's Duo by MTL Creations will be available for purchase on February 26th.
So tell me guys, which one is your favorite? Are you into the light mint green?
