St. Patrick's Day! #NailartMar Challenge

Hello everyone!

Today I wanted to show you my St. Patrick's Day nail art for #NailartMar even though it's 10 days late haha!

I painted 2 coats of Barry M White on all my nails. I don't own a bright green polish (which is surprising since green is my favourite colour!) so for the shamrocks I mixed Barry M Cobalt Blue and Barry M Lemon Ice Cream and used a dotting tool to draw the shamrock. For my ring finger I sponged on Barry M Bright Red, Barry M Lemon Ice Cream, Barry M Cobalt Blue and Barry M Bright Purple to make the rainbow. Then I used a polish I bought from Poundland called Pretty Polka Dot Gold to look like the gold at the end of a rainbow :) I used Seche Vite for the topcoat.

The gold glitter polish came off really thick so my nail looks a bit blobby at the end of my ring finger and in hindsight I probably should have placed the glitter on my nail individually rather than using the polish brush.

I hope you like this design. If you want to take a look at what I've done for previous themes click below:

Let me know what you think and I'll be back soon with some more nail-related stuff!
