I wasn’t really planning to do any Saint Patrick’s Day nails on myself, but after I did my sister-in-law’s nails I felt inspired. She went to a SPD party so she wanted something fun. This is how her nails turned out:
I obviously also went the green route. I started off with China Glaze Gaga For Green as my base color.
Then I used Color Club Holiday Splendor for the chevron design on my tips.
I should have left it at that, but then I decided to add a shamrock sticker and rhinestones.
Then I thought to myself that the rhinestones looked pretty tacky so I pried them off. Unfortunately, this left a ding on my nails.
And because it bothered me that I could still see where the rhinestones used to be, I then tried to cover it up with glitter.
So by this point, I thought that my nails looked pretty gross and just took everything off and started all over.
This was my final look. I used OPI Mermaid Tears as the base color and Color Club Holiday Splendor for the chevron tips. I used only one design on my accent nail and I was pleased with the way they turned out.
I had a nice SPD after all! I went to dinner with two friends whom I have known since we were kids. After we stuffed ourselves as Lucille’s BBQ, we went to a karaoke lounge and sang all the embarrassing songs that we could think of. Ahhh…it was a lot of fun.
How did you spend SPD? Did you sport any fun and festive nail designs?
