St. Patricks Day Art – Guest Post By Nidia of Lit From Within

Hi, I’m Nidia, and I run a little blog called Lit From Within.  I have loved KBShimmer polishes for a while, now, and jumped at the chance to show y’all a little nail art featuring one of these lovelies.

I’m not Irish, but I married an Irishman, and besides, who doesn’t like a little green on St. Paddy’s Day?  I was inspired by Robin Moses Shamrock nail art to show off a little o’ the green today.

I started with Deborah Lippmann Pearly Queen, a pale nude with green shimmer.  I just wanted the green pearlescent effect in the background.

Here’s the star! KBShimmer Get Clover It, a green jelly polish with light and dark green, blue, and gold glitters.

It can be tricky to get glitter exactly where you want it sometimes, so after laying down two coats of the polish, I painted a cosmetic sponge with another couple of coats of Get Clover It.  The sponge soaks up some of the base, and then you can dab the sponge on the nail, and it just deposits the glitter where it touches.

Genius, really.  Not my original idea, of course, but one I borrowed from Nail Wish.

Sinful Colors Pistache makes a nice light green contrasting line above Get Clover It.

A teeny nail art brush and some SOPI Give Peas A Chance, and there are the shamrocks, ready for St. Paddy’s!

Topcoat smooths out the nail art and makes sure that all the glitters are nice and shiny.

If you liked this nail art, and would like to see more from me, I invite you to check out my blog, Lit From Within, or any of my social media: Facebook, Google+, Bloglovin‘, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, or Pinterest.

Thanks again, Christy!
