Happy Paddy's Day! Pot o' Gold in Shamrocks

Hi everyone! Happy St. Patrick's Day! Nobody seems to celebrate here, which is a shame. Oh well. I had enough drinks to make up for the less festive folks around me ;)

I painted a field of shamrocks swaying in a gentle breeze, basking in the sunlight after a rainstorm, and for the accent--the resulting rainbow + treasure at the end of it...

The sky-blue background is Revlon Colorstay #170 Coastal Surf. The rainbow is some assorted polishes I can't be bothered naming off, but I've used them all before--they're Revlon, CoverGirl, and Sally Hansen basic cremes :) The pot and the shamrocks were done with acrylic paint an a small brush. Lastly, the gold in the pot! It's mostly the glitter polish you see in the photo--Milani Jewel FX Gold--but I added a few slightly larger gold pieces from Born Pretty Store:

An actual pot of gold. I couldn't not use it!

If you look carefully, you can see a few pieces that fell out around the pot and are hiding in the grass :)

I sealed in all the glitters and paints with two coats of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

In shade. I love how the gold stands out! You can see the bits in the grass better here, too.

And one more, to show how shiny the glitters are! *insert anime-esque shine sound effect* sshhhhiiinnng!

Thus concludes my St. Patrick's manis for this year! I'm debating on what to do next... it's technically autumn here now, but it still feels like summer, and I have a really cute idea for a spring design. I think I'm having a... season crisis? Tune in next time to check out which one I pick--or better yet, vote in the comments; if I get a few responses I'll pick based on what you want to see! xoxo
