More Irish nail designs

these were just going to be green sparkly (Nicole by OPI's Brilliant Idea over Maybelline Express Finish's Go Go Green) but a layer of Essie's Shine of the Times added specks of orange gold from certain angles.  Fun combo of colors/effects

For the thumb: I accidentally rubbed off a section of polish, so I painted it black and added detail with same Essie over black and some bits of shine from SH's In The Spotlight :)

St. Patrick's Day nail art

Here's my St. Patrick's Day themed nails.  Don't love the finger designs but they came out nice enough.  The one on the right is supposed to be a harp, hence the music notes because it didn't come out very obvious :).  The thumb is pretty cool though the picture above doesn't do it justice.

Basic manicure plus black sharpie marker and various Sinful Nail Art colors (orange, green, gold, black) plus some OPI glitter polish for accents.  sealed with Seche Vite topcoat

took a few tries to get the "cake" portion color right, probably should have practiced it on paper first :)  cherry is sparkly red applied with end of a bobby pin.  sprinkles are dotted with the pointed side of an orange stick, and black lines are drawn with black Milani Nail Art polish

this design exists all over the net, but I thought it would be better the other way up (frosting along edge of nail.)  After doing thumb that way, I decided they all had it right, even if my nails are pretty stubby right now :)
