Rainbows and Pots of Gold

1:23:00 AM

Well happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!!!  How are you all planning on celebrating??  As I said in my other post, I don't really celebrate.  This year I'll be at the parade, followed by an afternoon home enjoying the weather.  Nice quiet day, who wouldn't enjoy that?

So as I sit here watching The Black Donnelly's (thank you Netflix), I remembered I didn't post my second St. Patrick's Day mani yet!  This show aired years ago on NBC for one season, and for some reason I liked it.  When I saw it was on there, I took a break from watching Gossip Girl and Psych and started watching.  Clearly, you can see I have the oddest taste in shows.  Current favorite, Revenge.  Anyone watched that???

I'm off on a tangent, nail time...(Dear Camera, thanks for making the coloring so different)

  • New York Color - White Lights Glitter - top coat

    • Sinful Colors - Black on Black - Pots of Gold
    • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White - base under gold
    • Milani - Good Morning Sunshine
  • Rainbow
    • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White - base under

Whew.  This mani was a pain in the behind, but I think it turned out cute.  I started with my green base coat.  I then did the pots of gold.  With a dotting tool and the black, i traced and filled in the little pot.  Once dried, I took the white polish and dotted the gold coins.  Once dried, I added the Milani gold, and bam they were done.  Next, I went to do the rainbows.  I started by putting the colors on with toothpicks.  I started with red, then the orange, then the yello....uh oh, yellow doesn't show up well on green.  Time to start over with the pointer finger.

I didn't  want to take off all the green on my other nails, or mess up my pots of gold with nail polish remover, so I took a white striper and outlined the rainbow on my nails.  Carefully, and painstakingly, I filled in the area with the Sinful Colors Snow Me White.  I then started stippling on the colors of the rainbow with a toothpick to each nail.  When the rainbows were done, I decided to add some gold coins to the rainbow fingers.  I took the white and dotted some on, then topped it with the Milani.

Finally, after an hour, it was all done.  I slapped on a top coat of New York Colors White Lights Glitter to add just a little more, and bam, they were done.

So, which St. Patrick's day mani did you like better, this one or my Leprechauns?

Have a safe St. Patrick's Day everyone!!!! :)
