Happy spring, everyone! Sorry for the bout of inactivity. My last round of gigs in the city had me completely tied up for a full week, so it has been hard to get enough sleep let alone keep up with my nails!
I had this green manicure done in time for St. Patrick’s Day but haven’t had a chance to update the blog since then. They are a super easy and fun way to celebrate the holiday.
I started by painting all my nails green. I used Pretty Edgy by Essie as my base color.
Because of time constraints, I resorted to stamping with plate BPX-L018 from Born Pretty Store for some four leaf clover goodness.
To make this manicure a bit sparkly, I used Cupcake Polish’s Little Butterfly with the clover pattern to add some holographic goodness to the background.
To finish up, I stamped the same clover design onto my nails using Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish #12, making sure that the pattern staggered with the holographic clovers already on my nails.
I thought it was interesting how much the stamping polish really brightened up the base color. Pretty Edgy is a nice green, but the lime green clovers on top made my nails stand out to the point where random strangers on the street were noticing them and telling me how much they liked the color!
Hope you had a great St. Patrick’s Day! Catch you on the next post. Happy polishing!
