St. Patrick's Day Manicure

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!  I like this holiday mostly because green is my favorite color and I get to wear tons of it and not be made fun of for it. :)  And I went a little nuts with the green nail polish too.

I started with 1 coat of Revlon Sassy, an awesomely bright lime green that is also opaque in one coat.  Then, I added 1 coat of Sinful Colors Call You Later, a clear jelly base with TONS of gold microglitter and both small and medium sized green glitter.  I swear this polish was made specifically for St. Patrick's Day!

Then, I used Shany plate SH12 and Sally Hansen Jumpin' Jade to stamp this cloverish-looking design.  (To be honest I don't know what it's supposed to be, but it was the closest I could find to a clover so that's what I used.)  Then, I added a coat of quick dry top coat.  Finally, I added a green rhinestone to the center of my ring finger and bam! St. Patrick's Day nails!

Do you have any plans for today?  Do you have your manicures picked out?  Thanks for reading!! :)
