St Patrick's Day manicure Using Pretty Serious Liquid Leprechaun

Hello my lovely readers! Happy St Patrick's day to all, with my family being mostly Irish I knew I wanted to do something special for today's manicure. So when I saw Pretty Serious releasing a limited addition polish called Liquid Leprechaun I knew I had to pick it up. This post is for all of my Irish family and all you lovely people out there that are celebrating this awesome day.

I love how this turned out it screams St Paddy's day and that accent nail of Liquid Leprechaun really makes this mani pop. I am sure this will get the seal of approval from my family over seas and at home. 

For my accent nail I used the stunning limited edition Pretty Serious Liquid Leprechaun, this is available at Rainbow Connection right now for £6.50.  I think there are only a few bottle's left so hurry on over now to grab yours. Liquid Leprechaun is a jam packed Irish Glitter fest, it has gold and green glitters in many different sizes that all lie in a bright green jelly base. I used 2 coats to get the polish completely opaque, the jelly base gives this polish lots of depth and those glitters add that touch of sparkle.

For the rest of my nails I first put on a white creme base colour the one above is China Glaze white on white which takes 2 coats for full opacity. I then used my Moyou London Festive plate collection 21, which is full of lots of St Patrick's day inspired images. For the stamping I used my green shimmer Born Pretty Store stamping polish and my gold. To give those clover leaves a touch of gold sparkle I dotted a bit of each polish onto the image and used my Fab Ur Nails scraper to blend. Once everything was completely dry I top coated and sealed in my design with HK Girl quick dry top coat. 

I hope you all have a fantastic St Patrick's day, I really love how this design turned out and I hope you all do too. As always please leave all your feedback in the comments section below and have a fab nail day. Chat to all you lovely people again soon.

    1. Thank you, normally the born pretty green shimmer is more silvery so I wanted to add that bit of gold so it went better with accent nail. I'm glad you like it :) x
