St. Patricks Day Nails

Tomorrow is Irelands national day, also called St. Patricks Day. It's the day you are suppose to wear green, or else people have permission to pinch you I just read online. So you better wear green if you don't wanna get pinched, haha.

I just had to paint my nails for this occasion. So I took all my green polishes and put them in front of me, trying to come up with something to do. Put then I just thought I want colorful, so I grabbed loads of other nail polishes too. It was a hell putting them all back later, just fyi. But then I came up with something. So I hope you like this.

So lets first talk about my accent nail. I just love doing accent nails! But after the putting base coat on I painted my ring finger in a light blue color. Then I started to paint a rainbow with a striping brush. You have no idea how many times I have to start over with this nail because apparently I don't know which colors and where they are in the rainbow. But after I finally got it right, I hope, I made a kettle with the brush on the nail polish and then with a dotting tool I made some gold over it.

For the rest of the nails I started with a light green color. and then with two darker shades of green and a dotting tool I made some clover alike things over the nail. A little failed but that's how it is. 

On my thumb I made a little fail Irish flag, made with the nail polishes brushes.
