Manicure Monday: Four-Leaf Clover Stamp for St. Patrick's Day
Guest Post by May Chiu of La Vie en May
I love all holidays because it gives me an excuse to create some fun nail art, (not that I ever need one though). St. Patrick's Day is a day my friends and I take seriously. We throw on layers upon layers of green: shirts, necklaces, glasses, suspenders, the list goes on and on. Me being a nail fanatic, I just had to do something with my nails.
This year, I decided to keep my nails simple. I used Essie's "First Timer", a beautiful pastel green, as a base coat and mixed my own green color for the 4-leaf clover stamp on a MASH plate. If you're wondering if you can mix nail polish like paint, the answer is yes! Great way to create your own colors, without having to buy more polishes. To make the clover stand out, I outlined the design in black. What do you guys think? How did you dress up your nails for St. Patrick's Day?
