St Patrick's Day Nails

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing? I hope you had an amazing week and have something fun to look forward to this weekend, or even just enjoy it chilling.

I had some news this week, today and yesterday I went back to work at the place I had been working at in December. One of the friends I made there reached out as she is having a family issue and needs to travel to another country. She suggested I could maybe take over her role while she's away so of course I said yes because I wanted to help her. While I'll only be there temporary I did enjoy the job immensely and it'll get me out of the house while I continue looking for work.

In other news..Tomorrow is St Patrick's day so of course we need to don some greenery on our claws for the occasion!


 





For this design I began with ORLY's 'White Tips' on my thumb and ring finger and Masura's 'Sky Garden' on all the other nails (such a beautiful green metallic!) On my white nails I began mixing shades of green to create a simple stripped gradient look, going from dark green to light green. I then painted some Shamrock shades in white and filled them in with a rainbow acrylic-gradient. On my remaining green nails I used a water colour technique and on top added a small amount of gold foil.

While this is certainly not my most favourite manicure I've ever produced I liked the concept. The gold is for the pot of gold at the rainbow, the rainbow within the shamrock represents the rainbow itself. Maybe next year I'll be braver and paint a little leprechaun.

What do you guys think of this nail art? Do you celebrate St Patrick's day?

Have a wonderful weekend my loves, thank you for stopping by! I'll catch you again on Monday for some more nailery fun!


Love,
Ithi

  13. I never thought that dark green shade nailpaints can also be used so lavishly to deck up nail. You are such a talented nail artist that you proved so easily that even dark green can be cool for nail art too...­čśŹ

  14. Hmmm... is there a reason why you keep the rainbow shamrock nails matt while the rest in metallic green? I thought if all nails in glittery green will be pretty cool!
