#NAILLINKUP – Butter London Keen & St Patricks Day Nail Art

Hello hello, did everyone have a nice weekend?

I gave the gym a pass this morning. I put myself under too much pressure to go all the time, and I haven’t been sleeping enough this week, so I decided it was time to take a break. I’ve also ignored my smartphone for most of the day, it’s been pretty nice!

Today, though, I have a very simple St Patrick’s Day mani to share 🙂

Butter London Keen St Patricks Day Nail Art

I haven’t bought as much polish recently as I used to. But I did order Keen, the base colour in this mani. The colour is great, but the formula isn’t so good. I always count on Butter London for the wicked smoothness of their polish, but this one is too thick. Which means it covers well, but then it drags. And bubbles. Seriously, this is the third time I’ve tried to wear it. And I still had to re-do a couple of nails! So, that’s kinda why I kept the nail art simple. A Gold shamrock accent nail, and a second accent nail with a half-shamrock, and I was done!

The gold is also by Butter London – The Full Monty. It’s a very nice polish, and I really should use it more often 🙂

Happy St Patrick’s Day

Hi Guys,

I see the Blogosphere has been very quiet yesterday – I hope that means you were all off having fun for St Patrick’s Day !

When I was little, at school we would have an assembly most mornings, and the teachers would tell us about any religious (from any major religion) days that might be happening. So one St Patrick’s Day, the headmaster  asked if any of us knew what day it was, and considering we were very tiny (and we don’t usually celebrate much of St Patrick’s Day unless you’re old enough to drink in the UK), he was very surprised when I put my hand up. But when he asked me what day it was, he was even more surprised that I proudly declared that it was my little sister’s birthday!

So a big Happy Birthday to Joey-Pops who is 21 today (though I still don’t believe it…)

… And a bit of simple St Patrick’s day nail art. This one is basically based on the technique I used when I worked in a bar in my student days, to put shamrocks on top of the pints of Guinness !



I used 2 O.P.I. polishes for this one : Thanks a Windmillion and Stranger Tides


Later on today, I’ll be publishing a very special guest post from Iriel from whynoteverday.wordpress.com – so please watch out for that, and do check out her fantastic blog !
