Happy St. Patty's Day-Share Your Manicure!

My first attempt at free-handing the tip (pre-cleanup, sorry!)
I hope you all have a fun-filled day today! I didn't do anything colossal for my mani today, but I did try experimenting doing my tips free-hand and it came out pretty well. I still need practice, but I sometimes think using the stick-on tip guides looks almost too perfect and I prefer the look I got free-handing it. It's not too hard to do if you hold the brush still and then roll your nail against the brush instead of pulling the brush across your nail. I used Sinful Street of NY (shouldn't it be plural, 'streets'?!!) for the tip, one of my finds from nail polish hunting last week, and Nfu-Oh #036 over the entire nail. Of course I had to use a little shamrock sticker to complete the look! If you did a St. Patty's mani, I'd love to see it so e-mail a link or a pic and I'll post some of your creativity. For those of you interested in the newly released MAC Peppermint Patti (a lovely mint green creme from the Sugar Sweet collection), MAC has free shipping right now with no minimum. Use the code 'sugarsweet'...it would have been nice of them to release it before St. Patrick's Day?!! Don't forget to send me your 'tip jar' beauty tips for a chance to win the entire China Glaze Summer Days collection.


  1. Very cute. I couldn't find any clover stickers though.

    I did a mani, it posted on my blog it you wanna see it!


  2. Nice mani! I love green polishes right now and can't get enough of them. I want to order the 2 Mac polishes buy can't order till after Lent. I believe there not limited edition. Least I hope not!

  3. Great mani, love the sticker! Here's mine.
    Have a great holiday!

  4. Brooke & Nessa, checked out your mani's, very nice!
    Lucy, I think you'll still be able to get the MAC polish, it looks like the perfect mint green!
