Luck of the Irish - Free For All

Today is the last day of the Luck of the Irish challenge. It is also St. Patrick's Day, so Happy St. Patrick's Day! Wear green, have fun, but please drink responsibly and be careful on the roads if you're going out tonight!

I didn't really know what I wanted to do for today's nail since it's open to just about anything Irish themed. I thought that I hadn't done Irish flags yet during this challenge, so I did it today!

Since the Irish flag is green, white, and orange, I painted three of my nails those colors in order. It looks like the Irish flag when viewed from this angle. I also thought that I had already done leprechauns and shamrocks, so I went with green beer for today's nails. 

I used Sinful Colors Envy, Ulta Snow White, and Zoya Arizona for the colors of the flag. I also painted my pinkie and thumb with Envy, but then used Sinful Colors Green Ocean on top to make it a bit sparkly. I thought it made the green beer look a but more like it's bubbly!

I then took a white striping polish and made some lines down the beer nails to look like a beer mug. I also dotted with Ulta Snow White to look like the froth on top, and made a bit drip down the side.

I think the green beer turned out alright, but I'm thinking I probably should have used a slightly lighter green for both the flag and the beer mugs. At least I'll match some drinks today! 

See how the others wrapped up the challenge as well!
