Green Ombre Shamrock Nail Art

St Patrick's Day is fast approaching, and this year it falls on a Saturday! Are any of you planning big festivities to celebrate?
I got the party started early with a green ombre manicure and a little shamrock too!
The ombre effect is really easy to create.  Grab a paper plate, and pour some clear polish onto it.  Add 4-5 drops of your desired color (in this case, green).  Using the color brush, mix together.  Put a coat of the polish mixture on your nails.  It will be very light in color.  
Then, move about 1/3 of the way up your nail and put another coat on.  Repeat a 3rd time, moving 2/3 of the way up your nail.
Let the polish set for a few minutes and then polish with a clear top coat.
I used the full strength green polish and a toothpick to create the shamrock on my ring finger.  If you decide to do this, do it before you put on your clear top coat.

So, what are your plans for St Patrick's Day?
