International zingy chingy roundtable

These bottles had convened long before and in honour of St. Patrick’s Day … but the varnish ambassadress herself missed the boho boat 😦

The sleek, jeweled Italians: Kiko 392, 533, 535, 536

The luxuriously swank Poles: Inglot 138, 320, 981, 986, 966 (which I had misread upside down as 996, thus it’s out of numerical order)

The cosmopolitan yet unjaded Americans: Urban Outfitters Green (multichrome), Destined Take A Hike, Zoya Edyta, SH Insta-Dri Emerald Express

The filthy rich yet understated Brits: A-England Dragon, Saint George, Proserpine

A stunningly glamorous Swede, Make Up Store Charmaine, accompanied but not outdone by gem-bedecked Italian Layla, Emerald Divine

And they sit down to wine and dine, dazzled by one other’s unique beauty at two coats!

I painted this wheel long ago and it was none too sparkly, so I gave it a dusting off and each chip a fresh coat.

NCLA Drop of Teal (why do almost all of my NCLA holos have wonky brushes? I avoid them due to this serious flaw …)

A-England Sleeping Palace

Bonita Flirty Shirley
