NOTD: Abstract Green

So these nails are a bit crazy but I think they are super fun! I wanted to do something funky and green for St Patrick's Day but didn't feel like doing the typical shamrock or rainbow and pot of gold nail art. So I came up with this sort of abstract art-esque nail art.

It was super simple to do! First I painted my nails white and then applied a light coat of a green glitter, and then a gold glitter to add some sparkle. Then I used 2 nail art pens in different green shades and swiped these on from the bottom corner of my nail fanning outwards. I then took a more dense green glitter and put a blob at the base of the green, wiped off my brush and then pulled the glitter outwards over the green. I then stuck a green gem in the corner and finished off with a topcoat. Phew that took a while!

(I made a ring out of a real shamrock hehe!)

I thought this look was perfect for St Patrick's day and also the days after as it wasn't something like a shamrock which would only be appropriate on the day.

I hope you enjoyed this quick post!
