Pot of Gold (St. Patrick's Day Nails)

Hi loves! I have a quick post for you guys! Getting ready for St. Patrick's Day! I'm really excited, today my friends and I will be going to the annual St. Patrick's Parade in NYC. And after given much thought, I decided to recreate my St. Patty nail art design, I did last year. 
It's a little different of course. But I after I finished the design, I realized I did a minor nail art mistake on the shamrocks. Don't you guys hate when that happens! I was going to redo the design, again, I was just a little lazy to do that. Besides I really like how they came out, even for that minor error. 
For this design I started off with two coats of Super Black Nail Lacquer The Stag. Which was the perfect shade to use for this mani. It's such a lovely green with gold shimmers throughout. Once the polish was completely dried, I freehanded the shamrocks, using Essie's Good as Gold
Now for the pot of gold, I used Sinful Colors Black on Black. I then freehanded the coins with Essie's Good as Gold. I noticed this is a common nail art design for St. Patty's, but what a better representation for this holiday. I then went on limb, by using acrylic paint for the rainbows. 
I even added a few more coins, as if it was raining. Boy, I really wished that happened! Lastly, I sealed the design with Duri- Super Fast Dry Through Top Coat, that's it! Overall, I really loved how these turned out and Happy St. Patrick's Day! ;)
Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
