So, so lucky!

Well, I wasn't going to do a St. Patrick's Day manicure -- not for any real reason, I just kind of forgot about it until it was almost too late! But then some Twitter folks insisted that I not skip it. Thanks to them, I did this graphic shamrock pattern. I don't know whether to hug them or resent them. :)


The base of this manicure is two coats of Orly Fresh, which is one of my very favorite greens. :)

Then, using a dotting tool and a very small nail art brush, I freehanded on the shamrocks and their stems with Konad Special Polish White. As I've said before, it's a great polish for nail art because it is so pigmented!


And, well... that's about all I have to say about this manicure! It's a pretty simple full nail pattern!


Have a safe and fun holiday!

  14. They're not shamrocks, they're four-leaf clovers. The shamrock only have three leaves...

  15. My goal for my St. Patricks Day mani was this but instead of white four leaf clovers I was going to do black. Once I got my dotting tool to my nail though I couldn't get them small enough. :-( Instead each finger has one giant four leaf clover on it. Can't wait until my hands get as steady as yours.
