Inaugural manicure: St Patrick's Day

This is my first ever attempt at proper nail art using various techniques like gradients and fish tail and I've even had a stab at free hand drawing (eek!)

I think they've turned out OK but not quite how I've pictured them in my head but I think for a first go they're alright.  Also I must apologise for the picture quality but I've taken my initial photos with my mobile camera because there's no point having a St Patrick Day themed mani come out at Easter!

Hopefully my future manicures will be better executed and certainly better photographed!

Anyway, I enjoyed doing them and I'm sure I'll enjoy them until they chip (in about 4 hours or so).

I've used Model's Own Snow White, and their black nail art pen.  Barry M's 284 and an unamed orange colour from Front Cover.

Have you got any tips for stopping nail polish chipping?

See you next time
