FingerFood’s Theme Weeks: St Patrick’s Day: Clover manicure
It’s St Patrick’s Day this time for the FingerFood’s Theme Buffet challenge.
I took a leaf (ha ha) out of More Nail Polish‘s book, and used some real clover in my manicure. Sadly, I wasn’t lucky enough to find any four-leaf clover, so I’ve gone with a shamrock, a three-leafed clover.
The clover nails are OPI My Vampire Is Buff and the green nails are Revlon Emerald.
I tried to dry the clover using a microwave flower-pressing tutorial I found on the web. I don’t think they really dried out very much though. It wasn’t a problem as they were only staying on my nails for the day. If I was wearing this manicure longer, I wonder how the leaf would hold up.
I got a bit of bubbling with the top coat as the clover was obviously a bit raised. With a bit more care and attention – effectively with a slower application – that could be eliminated.
I also think the green could be more grassy. Perhaps Barry M Spring Green would have looked better. Hey ho.
Here are the manicures from everyone else that is participating:
