Irish Tartan

St. Patrick's Day has always been a big holiday here on the blog (from shamrocks to bejeweled greens and glittering lines). I'll use any holiday as an excuse for fantastic nail art though, and I'm really happy with this one.

I was inspired by, surprisingly, cookies created by Instagram user @gimmesugah for this design. Misty did a lovely interpretation of a green tartan/plaid on her cookies, and that pattern struck me so much I wanted to recreate it.

I used a pretty random selection of polishes for this design too. The dark green is Emerald Tower (lakur), the white is Look, Don't Tusk (Color Club), the light green is Kiwi Cool-ada (China Glaze), and the yellow is Sunshine (Barielle). I also used some Born Pretty Store heart-shaped studs flipped on their heads to make a perfect little four leaf clover on my thumb.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week and celebrates St. Patrick's Day your favorite way!
