Manicure Monday: St. Paddy’s Day Nails

mm-paddys-thIt’s that week again. A week for the whole world to celebrate their link to Ireland, no matter how tenuous the connection. Well, if you want your nails to look just a little more Irish, you need to check out this very simple job of St. Paddy’s Day Nails.

The colours, and lots of green!

For this manicure, you need a green, a white and an orange. And a green, and another green, and 37 shades more green. Anywhere between two and 40 is grand though. I used three greens, as it allowed some difference between them, and one of them was glittery. Enough said about that. The colours I used were:

I put a white undercoat under the green glitter, as I wasn’t sure of its coverage. If you know you have a full coverage polish, go for it without the undercoat.

It was then simply a case of laying down the main colours. I went for Green, White & Orange on my index, middle and ring fingers, while putting down white on my pinky and thumb, giving a solid base to work from. Then, using a fine paintbrush, it was a simple task to lay down the shamrock. Finally, I added the green glitter to my pinky fingers.

All done

All done

Et voila! It really was that simple to do, and I think it looks the part for holding a glass of green beer while saying “Kiss the Blarney Stone!”

What are you up to for St. Patrick’s Day? Are you dying the rivers green, painting the town red, or trying to avoid the madness of it all?

Manicure Monday: St. Patrick’s Day Nails

MM-PaddyHappy St. Patrick’s Day everyone. Thanks for taking a quick break from whatever it is you do on a day like this to have a look at today’s manicure.

This is really just a quick one to throw on, and yet not quick at all, as the number of coats to make the green polish green, and white polish actually look half decent is unbelievable. I need to get a decent white polish. I also apologise for not taking the time to clean up a bit before taking the photo. It is, however, meant to be the Irish flag on my nails, in case you couldn’t tell.
