SAINT PATRICK'S DAY 1
Hi again girls!! I guess you all know by now that this Sunday, March 17th, Irish people, and the rest of the World too, are celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day. On that holiday the pints of bear turn into emerald green, and shamrocks and leprechauns appears every where. I’ve decided to join the celebration with two manicures and I’m showing you one of them today. The polish I’ve used as a base is 706 by kiko, a green, of course, magnetic polish.
Después añadí las partículas de oro. ¿Partículas de oro?!!! Si, jajajaja partículas de oro, os lo explico: Uno de los sets que venían en la edición limitada de essence vintage district, traía una hojita de pan de oro y con anterioridad yo había visto este video de Arcadia nails, en el cual explicaba como conseguir un look parecido al que se consigue con el archifamoso esmalte de opi the man with the golden gun. Así que me puse manos a la obra y tachan…partículas de oro. Tengo que decir que algunas partículas me han quedado demasiado grandes y voy a volver a trocearlas.
Then I added the gold speck. Gold specks???!!! Yes, hahahaha, gold specks, explanation: One of the decoration sets from the LE vintage district by essence came with a little sheet of gold, before that I had watched this video by Arcadia Nails explaining how to achieve a similar look but not so expensive, that the one you get with the famous polish by opi the man with the golden gun. So I put myself into work and….gold specks. I have to say some of my specks are too big.
After adding a good amount of top coat, I added the Irish touch to my middle finger, after seeing the final result, I think I could have saved this step, but it is done. It is said that leprechauns keep their gold pots at the end of the rainbows, and that is what I’ve tried to paint on my nails, without success. Still I hope you like it, xo.
