Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! I've no idea yet what we'll do this evening; Porterhouse in Covent Garden has been suggested, but I think I might be too old to put up with the crush.
Oh well. At least the nails are done.
I used Barry M Mint Green as the base colour on all nails except my ring finger, then sponged a nameless Claire's Accessories yellow-green and Sephora by OPI Leaf Him At The Alter over that, trying to achieve an impressionist mossy/lump of shamrock effect at the tips.
The shamrocks on my thumbnail were done with a white Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen.
For the nail on my ring finger, I started with a base of M&S Baby Blue and then used Sally Hansen and Nails Supreme nail art pens to draw Howyeh Kitty (inspired by this manicure.)
I got these shoes last weekend in Madrid without even thinking about Lá Fhéile Pádraig, but they're accidentally perfect for the day (and night) that's in it!
