Graduation Mani... Green and Gold

Took grad photos this week. I wanted to have a kind of cute mani that matched my school colors which are green and gold. For this I did 2 coats of "Here today... Aragon tomorrow" by OPI and another coat of "Boom Boom Pow" by Deborah Lippmann. Covered it with Seche Vite top coat. Its pretty easy. I got a lot of good comments from people who didn't realize it was 2 separate polishes, so that was cool.
"Here today... Aragon tomorrow" from OPIs Espana collection is a nice, dark green cream with a hint of shimmer. It goes on a bit uneven, so try and even it out, because if you paint on too many coats it will become so dark you lose the green color. "Boom Boom Pow" is Deborah Lippman's version of Gold; it contains 24 Karat gold dust, gold micro-glitter and gold hexagonal sequins. It's pretty ridiculous. I did a really light coat of this over the green just to get a taste of gold, and it still came out really gold, so you do not need to use a heavy hand with this.
Check it out, hope you like :)
