St Patrick Day Nails

Green Clovers


Happy Friday to you all :) Just a quick post today with my St Patrick day inspired nails. I was going to do a stamping nail art, but changed my mind and did a water marble instead, inspired by My Simple Little Pleasures. It's a very simple water marble to do, but also very effective. It took me some time to sort out what two polishes to use, and after a few tests found the right two. 



Sally Hansen Grass Slipper and Maybelline Winter Baby

Nails painted with two coats of Winter baby, taped and ready to go. After making the rings of polish I just drew four lines into the middle of the polish from the top, bottom, left and right. This makes the clover pattern. I wasn't able to make the clover small enough to fit on my ring finger or pinky, so I still made the design and fitted the best looking section on these nails. Take a look ..




I didn't think green polish suited my skin tone well, but I'm surprised that this shade of green does, and I love them :) What do you think?
Till next time, stay safe and much love..

    1. Thank you so much for a lovely comment :) I too find some shade of orange and yellow clash with my skintone, but if I wear them as a part of a rainbow they look fine! xx

  2. Love this mani - green looks great on you, really vibrant and graphic. Sick with jealousy over your water marble skills though.
