Jaybird's Texas Jolly Rancher

A wonderful fellow blogger and fabulous frankener, polish creator, artiste created the polish I have for you today. It came to me  nameless and I was given permission to name it. It was so juicy it reminded me of the green Jolly Ranchers and well it was in Texas. She's in Tennessee. They are the Vol's you know and that has something to do with Texas if memory serves me correctly. So, here it is, Texas Jolly Rancher.

It has gold flakies in it and is jelly and squishy.

If you love this as much as I do and would like to own it, check out her blog at Polished Pirate. She has some other awesome colors too. I'll post more of them soon.

And since it is March, I stamped this with a St. Patrick's theme.

Plates I used in this design are Red Angel 107, Konad M22, and Born Pretty M71. 

I realized I haven't done a good job of telling you what I'm using underneath and on top. I'm going to try to do better about that. This mani I started with Trind Balsam, Orly Bonder, Instant Artificials, two coats of polish, then Nubar Diamont. Once that was dry which is usually just a few minutes I stamped with Konad Princess polish and topped it with Sally Hansen Diamond Shine. Then I go over it with quick dry drops from Sally Hansen or L'Oreal whichever is handy. That's an oil not another polish :).

It's a lot of layers, but it protects my nails very well. I'm still playing around with a good combination that will stay on and moisturize my nails.

Hope to see you soon! :)
