Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m going to be honest – I’m not a big St. Patrick’s Day celebrator, but I will wear green today☘ I decided to throw together a simple little manicure that could be worn any time, but has a pot-of-gold-at-the-end-of-the-rainbow feel for the holiday. And it features the perfect holographic rainbow with all KBShimmer polishes!
To really turn up the holographic sparkle, I started with a quick coat of KBShimmer Prism Break on each nail – a sparkly negative space look. Once that had dried, I used the following shades to create a ROY G. BIV dry brush manicure: KBShimmer Macaw Me Maybe, KBShimmer Run! It’s The Coppers!, KBShimmer Cope-Banana, KBShimmer Keep Palm And Carry On, KBShimmer Ink Again (KBShimmer Latitude Adjustment was not included in the manicure, but it would be a fabulous “indigo”), and KBShimmer Orchidding Me?. The perfect holographic rainbow!
The dry brush turned out a bit subtle, especially on the first half of the rainbow, so I decided to really “set” the whole look with some black detailing. I added pops of gold as well, since this is supposed to be a St. Patrick’s Day manicure! Cuticle-hugging leopard print in Zoya Ziv and KBShimmer Eclipse really completed the look. I sealed everything in with KBShimmer Clearly On Top.
Overall, this is a simple, yet fun look for St. Patrick’s Day – or any day really! Dry brush is such an easy way to achieve a gradient-feel and I think it worked well here.
