I feel like I'm saying this a lot lately, but I'm sooooo sorry about my cuticles in this post. This winter has been absurdly dry, and the enormous amounts of stress from the last week or so of school has really just destroyed my ability to not pick at things. They're not bloody or anything but... well, you'll see what I'm talking about. If my photoshop skills were any good, I'd fix them.
This is my St Patrick's Day manicure! My mum keeps telling me that I like super strong tea because I'm part Irish, but I've never actually met any of these Irish relatives so I have no idea if she's just confused.
For this manicure I used a base of Color Club Rule Breaker, which is a teal-leaning green that I'm totally in love with. I don't have all that many greens in my collection (Kirsten gets the prize for that), but the ones I have are pretty incredible.
Rule Breaker covered perfectly in two coats, and the dry time was pretty excellent, but I'm coming to expect that from Color Clubs.
I thought I had a proper shamrock stamp, but apparently I don't. This is close enough though, right? It's the sort-of shamrock/heart stamp from Konad plate m22, and I'm quite fond of it. On the actual plate it has a little stem, but I couldn't get it to transfer onto the stamp at all. Boourns. I wanted to stamp with something sort of gold, so I mixed in a few drops of OPI She's Golden with my special Konad white polish, but it only really succeeded in making the white a little more sheer.
Oh well, I'm still happy with it!
Are you gals doing anything special tonight? Are you wearing a green manicure or have you gone for something else?
