St. Patty's day abstract

A little late in coming but here is the St. Patty's day design I did this year. Feeling artsy once again I veered away from the traditional clover designs & went with the basic color scheme of the holiday but challenged myself to come up with something new & different. I found a pretty abstract painting & using my long striping brush I made thin little strokes in each color building up a sort of ombre faded look until the entire nail was covered. Here is the result:

I used both acrylic paint & nail polish for this design...

Here are the step by step pictures I took to show how I applied the color using only the thin striping brush:

I hope everybody had a great St. Patty's day celebration this year.
"May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you."
