MTL Creations - St. Patty's Duo

66 comments

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.

MTL Creations - St. Patty's Duo

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

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?

  19. Magically Mint is so pretty! I'm a big fan of mint in general, and for a shimmery polish it's impressive to not be streaky/ brushstrokey!

    ReplyDelete

  44. Oh I love this. I am going to have to check for these nail polishes at my local stores. I do my nails for St. Patrick's Day, and pretty much all of March for Irish American Heritage Month.

    ReplyDelete
  45. That mint color is gorgeous. I usually don't like shimmer much either but I need that color.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  47. That is amazing! I love your nails!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Magically Mint is gorgeous, love your swatch photos of it. I like floating charms but I cant decided if I really like the sparseness of the larger glitters or not. My mind is too tired to try and picture more of them on the nail right now.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Magically Mint is gorgeous! I like how soft it looks.

    ReplyDelete
  50. These are both gorgeous! I love the contrast of the glitter topper over the green, but that shimmer in Magically Mint is to die for!

    ReplyDelete
  51. oh wow, I love this for the st. patty's day parade we attend! So fun!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Such lovely colours, I love them. Can I please just tell you though, as an Irish person we really hate it when people call it 'St. Patty's Day'. It's not Patty it's PADDY's Day!!! The nickname for Patrick is Paddy.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Magically Mint is really pretty, I love light mint colors.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Green is my favorite color, so Magically Mint is right up my alley. I can't believe I haven't painted my nails green ever.

    ReplyDelete
