Alrighty, onto the next St. Patty's mani! This one is 2 coats of Wet 'n Wild black Creme topped with 2 coats of Black Irish, another of my St. Patty's Day themed frankens! Black Irish is a translucent black base with green holo shred, small green hex glitter, and green micro glitter.
And for those wondering what Black Irish means, it is a term used to describe the "other" Irish (as opposed to the classic stereotyped pale-skinned, freckled, red-head *cough* me *cough* ). The dark-haired, fair-skinned, green (or blue) eyed Irish person. It can also mean dark-hair, brown eyes, and dark complexion but I have only heard it in reference to the black hair/ green eye combo.
If you can't tell it was really hard to capture the fire in this mani, I think this last picture is the best attempted but still falls short. Much Love, The Dragon Lady
