Green Margarita Manicure

Leaping leprechauns! If you want to get your green on this St. Patrick's Day, SHINE Beauty Beacon has created the Green Margarita Manicure. It comes complete with a real salt rim.
Here's how to get started: Apply a base coat and two layers of green nail lacquer.
Next, paint a thin line along the length of each nail tip with a light-colored lacquer. 
Before the tips dry, dip each nail in a salt bath and tap off the access morsels. OPTIONAL: Apply a top coat to set the salt and polish. With a generous amount on your brush, stroke from the bottom of the nail to the top. Dab away any salt bits collected on the brush on a paper towel before proceeding to the next nail. 

The following video illustrates the salt step of the protocol:

BEAUTY: The Green Margarita Manicure uses SpaRitual Eye of the Beholder (from the new Truth collection) and Driftwood lacquers. BEACON: SpaRitual uses vegan ingredients and no synthetic dyes. It also supports TreePeople and Cancer Schmancer.

Last, but not least, here's the recipe for a Green Margarita:
1.5 ounces tequila
1/2 ounce orange liqueur
1 ounce fresh lime juice
1/2 ounce melon liqueur, such as Midori
Moisten the rim of the cocktail glass with lime juice and dip it in salt. Blend liquid ingredients and then pour the mixture into a glass filled with crushed ice. Cheers!
