#mommysmanimonday Prompt: St. Patrick’s Day

I have to admit, I just was not feeling very keen on green and had a hard time deciding what to do for this mani. It’s a bit of a mixed bag, but I think the final result ended up looking pretty satisfactory!

I started out by painting on my base polishes: On my pinky I used OPI – Love.Angel.Music.Baby and on the others I used Barielle Teaser. I topped all nails with a coat of Seche Vite to aid in drying time.

On my middle and ring finger, I stamped some celtic knotwork print using Essie – Good as Gold and a Bundle Monster plate. For the shamrock on my pointer finger, I used a small dotting tool and created 4 hearts, faving inward. I then used a detail brush to paint on the stem. A coat of Seche Vite on everything and I was done!

POLISHES:

  • Essie – Grow Stronger Base Coat
  • Barielle – Teaser
  • OPI – Love.Angel.Music.Baby
  • Essie – Good as Gold
  • Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat
  • BM-XL10

I’m surprised this ended up looking as cohesive as it did, honestly. My ideas were all over the place and at the same time, trying to do something somewhat original that I hadn’t seen anywhere else.
