St. Patricks Day - Mystic Muse Mani




 Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Erin go Bragh!

Erin go Bragh /ˌɛrɪn ɡə ˈbrɑː/, sometimes Erin go Braugh, is an Irish language phrase, Éirinn go Brách, and is used to express allegiance to Ireland. It is most often translated as "Ireland Forever." I'm actually a quarter Irish as my maternal grandfather's family hails from County Cork in Ireland.

For my St. Patrick's day mani I knew I was going to use Lucky and Spun Gold from my Mystic Muse Exclusive's box! You read read my review here in case you missed it.


For this mani I used the following Mystic Muse Nail Lacquer polishes:
  • LUCKY - The perfect shamrock green holo! Perfect for St Patrick's Day! This beautiful polish has a medium linear holo and lots of gold sparkle.
  • SPUN GOLD - A beautiful iridescent gold top coat, that would make any leprechaun proud !
  • CLOUD 9 (Valentines Day Collection) is one of the heavenly colors from our Valentine Collection! Cloud 9 is beautiful a pearl white Lacquer. (Find my full review here)
  • 24K GOLD- a dazzling gold holo! (find my full review here)

After I got my base polishes done I sort of hit a wall. Clovers? Irish flag? Rainbows? Pots of Gold? So many options! I decided I wanted to use some orange in my overall mani but darn that I have not invested in a themed plate. I stamped over Cloud 9/Spun Gold with Mundo de Unas in Geranium (53) using the only remotely Celtic design I owned on my LeaLac plates.  I hand painted the four leaf clover using the technique for making hearts with a dotting tool.




So what do you think? How do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day? Usually I like to make corned beef and cabbage but this year I'm taking the easy route and just enjoying a good beer!


I'll leave you today with my favorite Irish blessing.
