Happy St. Patrick's Day!

      To honor the Irish I created a manicure inspired by the gold you would find at the end of a rainbow! Minty green nails coated with a layer of gold dust accented by a singular rainbow nail, a concept simple enough to do on your own hands with out the help of a friend. This manicure is sure to turn a few Irishmen's glances in your direction tonight! Here's how to achieve the look yourself: 

You will need:

(Or whatever you already own that is similar!)

(These are only $1.99 at Rite Aid and they have
very fine brushes perfect for detailed designs!)

Getting started....

I start with a dry base coat, they apply pink, yellow,
and blue to my ring finger nail as shown above.

Then I apply 2 coats of mint green polish to my other nails.
 I also fill in the gaps on my ring finger nail with orange and
green nail art polishes (as shown above). Finally I finish
with either a clear or gold glitter top coat.

Throw back an Irish car bomb for me!



  1. This is such an adorable idea! I love the gold sparkles and the rainbow is very clever! Lovely manicure.

  2. Girl, you are just so creative! I adore this idea for a nail manicure <3
    The rainbow and gold make the green extra special. Love it!
