A Years Challenge Week 11: St.Patricks Day Mani

Happy Saint Patricks Day!!:)
I finally did my St. Patrick's Day manicure for this week's challenge. I know I'm a little late. I try to have my nails done by Monday so I can post that weeks challenge but it usually ends up turning into Tuesday for some reason. This week ended up being Thursday (i know, bad blogger) lol. I was excited to do this mani though. Another excuse for cute nails :) Here's what I finally came up with.



Soo...I decided to use two coats of Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear in Mint Sorbet as a base. Then I taped off my nails to get the diagonal french using Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear in Going Green, then using L.A. Art Deco's striping polish to draw the gold line underneath the french tip. Just to give it that pot of gold look.


Then for the real challenge, I attempted to draw four leaf clovers. They didn't come out quite like I expected them too, but they'll have to do. I used my Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in green to draw them.


Then I added a few gold rhinestones to give it a "flashy" sort of look. I have so many gems and rhinestones but never use them for some reason. I think I'm afraid they wont last very long. I could totally see them getting caught in my hair or on something else easily.

Do you guys go all out and celebrate for St. Patrick's Day or is just another day?
