Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
This is not what I had in mind for my St. Patrick’s Day nail art, but this is what it ended up being, so that’s what it is. 🙂
Here is what I used for this, including how many coats:
- OPI Nail Envy x1 (base coat)
- OPI Alpine Snow x3
- Nubar Diamont top coat x1
- China Glaze Running in Circles sponged on
- Nubar Diamont top coat x2
I thought that Running in Circles was green micro glitters in a clear base, but it’s in a green base. My plan was to do a green glitter gradient at the cuticles, but because of the green base it did not work as well, so I just went with it and this is the result.
I was also going to freehand a clover on my ring finger, but the green base threw me off guard and I completely forgot about it, oops! I still like them even though it’s not what I had in mind.
I added the green with a makeup sponge, so obviously I had tons on my fingers that needed to be cleaned up. Talk about a cleanup job; the micro glitters were everywhere!!! Actually they still are, my hands are all sparkly. 🙂 My nails are sparkly too, but cameras don’t pick up the sparkle of glitters that well.
Now that I think about it I should have done a full nail with Running in Circles. Oh well, next time. 🙂
What did you do for your St. Patty’s Day mani?
