Happy St Patty's Day!

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Did you have a great time out? Had many Stouts?

My St Patty's Day was a quiet one where I was home all day just lazing in bed. Saturday was a very busy day for me having to bring my dog to the vet amid a cancer scare. The vet said she was OK but we will have to keeo an eye on her habits and come back to him if there are any big changes.

Let me push those grim news aside and on to the green!


I really wanted to incorporate a rainbow on my nails but after going through all my drawers I realised that I had no purple/violet creme polish :S

I quickly went through my drawers and was really happy that I had 2 green cremes which were quite contrasting! Ha! If I were to attempt this mani 3 months ago it would've been impossible cz at that time all I had was the apple green (OPI Green-wich Village) and a jelly green (Cult Nails Feeling Froggy)


I did the gradient with OPI Green-wich Village and China Glaze Exotic Encounters. I quite like how the gradient turned out even though it wasn't super smooth.


And of course what is St Patrick's Day with out a four leave clover!



I used A England's Holy Grail (original) as the base on my ring finger and used a dotting too to create four little hearts. Let me say this - I was not all that in love with Holy Grail (original) as I thought it was a wee bit too yellow. But after using it, I have since fallen in love with it's yellowish glow and butter smooth formula!

Here's a close up of my ring finger.


I liked how something so simple looked so great!
