Hey There Polished People!
As I write this I am on my way downtown to celebrate SPD so I’ll make this quick!
I decided to use my Bundle Monster holiday plates to do a festive mani for St. Patrick’s Day. Let’s have a look!
I used Essie Navigate Her for the base, and NOPI Khloe Had A Little Lam Lam with H05 for the design. I really dislike this on my oval nails. I could have done much better on the execution, and the shape just doesn’t do it for me w the art so that’s too bad. I hope you all like it ok and more importantly are having a good weekend!

Do you think nail art looks weird or is hard to pull off on oval nails? Do you have any St. Patrick’s Day plans? Don’t forget to wear green!! *pinch pinch* Thank you all for reading and commenting and till next time- Happy Polishing!!
I am using that image also! Your mani looks great. 🙂
Great minds think alike! 🙂 Thank you!!
I don’t think anything is weird here! in fact i want to say WOW i love it! so funky and different!
Alright then! Thanks! 😉 Yours looked AWESOME!
I think I much prefer your nails round! Maybe it’s just that we’re all going through a “change the shape” obsession….Talk to you later, right bike.
Haha aren’t you so funny! :p I was a little bike for a bit, but considering our group went through $147 in whiskey shots I wasn’t nearly bike enough. I like that the shape shifting is catching like wildfire. I think it’s fun! 🙂
Oh and- I’m absolutely going to try to copy your stamping style and stick to basic colors on top of pretty bases. All of your stamping manis are sooo pretty.
Really nice manicure! I love how simple and specific this design is, and it looks great with the matte finish. 🙂
Thanks so much! I actually used regular Seche Vite for the TC so it isn’t matte, but now that you’ve said that I see that it looks matte in the picture. Must have been my lighting!! Oops! Thanks for reading! 🙂
Oh haha my bad, but at least we know it would also look good if it was matte haha 🙂
That we do!!! Haha.
I don’t think it looks weird on your nail shape at all!
I did a lil’ something for St. Patrick’s Day. Yesterday I got a few people together and had lunch/beers at this place called the Alehouse. It wasn’t as crowded as I thought it would be, but the service sucked…womp, womp! Then we went to one of my friend’s in-laws for a traditional Irish dinner. I was ready to BURST after all that food & beer. No right bike, though…basically once I started feeling a little buzzed, I stopped because I had to drive home & work today. Ah, drinking as an adult, lol.
Oh, and I wore green yesterday and today. 😉
That sounds nice, too. Yeah drinking as an adult and now as a parent for me- not quite the same. We are having St. Patrick’s Day dinner on Thursday at my mom and dad’s house because they’ve never had corned beef before! I don’t even remember what I had for dinner that night… fast food of some sort.
What kind of base coat do you use?
I use Sally Hansen Hard As Nails. I’ve used others occasionally but I like how the SH base really does make my nails stronger.
…That’s a beautiful manicure! So festive and pretty! I’m with you on the nail shape, but it’s still a gorgeous mani. 🙂
Thanks! I really hated this design on these nails. However right at this moment I have some free-handed cherry blossom art on my nails and it looks sooooo pretty on my ovals!
Ohh, I look forward to seeing that. 😀
Thanks. It’ll be a bit, but they’re coming! 🙂
