St. Patrick’s Day Nails!

In China Glaze, Nails, OPI, Orly, Ulta, Wet n Wild, Zoya by Jacki36 Comments

Hello readers! I am really loving these nails and just had to get on and share them as soon as I took pictures! There is a St. Patrick’s Day nail design contest on Facebook so this is what I came up with for my entry! I saw something very similar done by Laurie at Dressed Up Digits here and I knew I wanted to try it out!

First of all, I need to tell you how amazingly beautiful Zoya Ivanka is. I am so sad that the gorgeous gold glass flecks don’t show in my sun pictures. Indoors, it is such an amazing color. This has made me realize that Zoya Charla, Mimi, and Ivanka are in the top favorite polishes in my entire stash. Glass flecks are apparently my weakness. Way to go, Zoya!

Ivanka is even more green than these pictures are showing. Imagine a much golder tint to it. I could only adjust my photo temperature so much before I had orange fingers, so just take my word for it.

I used:
Base coat of Cult Nails Get It On
3 coats of Zoya Ivanka
Rainbow stripes with a striper and these polishes:
 Zoya Posh
 OPI In My Back Pocket
 Orly Lemonade
 Ulta Limelight
 Zoya Phoebe
 Zoya Savita

China Glaze Passion and a dotter for the clover

Wet n Wild Ink Well and a striper for the pot of gold
Gold buillon beads for the “gold coins”

2 coats of Cult Nails Wicked Fast

What do you think? I’m hoping to leave this mani on as long as I can. It’s just too cute! Thanks for reading!

    Love this! I want to do a similar design with the rainbow on my four nails but now I might try this out. Where did you get the gold bouillon beads if you don't mind me asking??
