Smokey St. Patrick's mani

When trying to come up with ideas for St. Patty's mani's, I went looking through Pinterest.  Last year, I did THIS mani with some green holo, matte, & a beer accent nail.  This year I wanted to try a few different things.

All of a sudden I remembered a mani I did ages ago based off a tutorial that you can find HERE.  I pulled out like 95% of my green polishes and went to town.  This was the first one for this year.

I started out with 2 coats of Essie Da Bush and let that dry with a quick dry top coat.  Then I used one of my mani nail art brushes and applied strokes of China Glaze Def Defying  & Zoya Shawn.  I absolutely LOVED this but thought it needed something else. 

Usually, I tend to overthink nail art and add too much when it's enough as it is.  So I took pictures before messing it up.

I totally forgot to rotate these so you could see that they're gold shamrocks.  I used Pure Ice Bite Me! and a toothpick to draw them on & finished it off with a coat of China Glaze Fast Forward.

What do y'all think? 

I have plenty of ideas in mind and will be trying them out over the next few days so be on the lookout for them.


  1. These are pretty awesome!!! I thinks I may copy!!! :D

  2. I am so in love with this mani! Is it okay if I share it on my blog with my readers for St. Pats?
