Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

  I must admit, I am not a big party girl - I have never been that much into going to bars and drinking a lot, haha.  Dan and I are kind of boring and like to stay home and spend time together, or else hang out with our families.  However, I am part Irish (and Dan is very Irish), so I still enjoy celebrating Saint Patrick's Day!

Outdoors, shade
  For my St. Patty's Day mani, I started off with two coats of Zoya Apple over my Lippmann ridge filling base coat.  Then I used Zoya Holly and BM-203 to add a darker green design to the nails.  While it is a bit hard to see in the pictures, it really added a lot of depth to the green base of this mani.  You can see it better in the following close-up image.

  I added the white four-leaf clover using the design from Red Angel plate RA-116, then added a green rhinestone to the center of the clover.  Finally I topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite!

Outdoors, direct sunlight
  Hope everyone has a happy (and safe) St Patty's Day!  And don't forget to cheer on the K-State Wildcats this afternoon against Syracuse!  ;)


  1. You are super talented! I really like this mani, very festive.

  2. I adore Zoya Apple, and this stamping manicure is soooo cute! Love it! :)
