Happy St. Patrick's Day! My little girl is four years old and always asking for manicures. This week she requested rainbow nails and I had to oblige. Since she is so young, she could only be trusted to sit still for two rainbows. I just used varying colors of nail polish and my thinnest, stiffest nail art brush. She loves the little pots of gold and I'm just proud that the rainbows didn't turn out like brown blobs. I'm also impressed that she sat still long enough that she didn't smudge her nails. That said, the rainbow on her thumb peeled off less than 24 hours after the manicure. Little girl fingers are like Teflon; polish just won't stay stuck on her nails.
My manicure, on the other hand was a smudgy mess. The base color took forever to dry and didn't cover evenly, then I tried to stamp some clovers and could not get them to look good. I got rid of the clovers and topped with China Glaze Luxe and Lush, which, in my opinion, is the manicure's saving grace. It flashes like gold chips indoors. I kind of want to wear it all the time.
