Irish I Was Irish

  1. Apply Gelish Mini Foundation and cure.
    2. Apply Gelish Mini in Mint Icing and cure after each layer (apply two). Leave one finger free to create your foamy beer accent nail.
    3. On your free finger, apply Gelish Mini in Arctic Freeze and cure
    4. Apply Gelish Mini in Bronzed on top of the white nail, cure and apply again for a total of two Bronzed layers.
    5. With a dotting tool, create three dots in random positions on the tip of the Bronzed nail and connect with curved lines, filling in all spaces to create the look of the top of a beer. Cure.
    6. Apply Gelish Mini Top It Off, cure, and clean with Gelish Mini Nail Surface Cleanse. Finish off with Gelish Mini Nourish Cuticle Oil.

Shamrock Shake-up

  1. Apply Gelish Mini Foundation and cure.. Apply a coat of Gelish Mini in Mint of Spring and cure. Repeat with second coat.
    3. Do not clean. Take your wedge sponge and apply Gelish Mini in Mint Icing on the corner of your sponge and press it softly on the nail tip. Repeat twice and cure both times.
    4. Apply Gelish Mini in Bronzed to your sponge and press softly to the middle section of your nail tip towards your cuticle.
    5. Apply more of Bronzed to your sponge and press softly applying only in the middle section of the nail, creating another ombre layer with your glitter gel polish.
    6. Apply Mint Icing once more on your sponge and apply it only to the edge of your nail, making it the darkest section of your nail.
    7. Apply Gelish Mini Top It Off, cure, and clean with Gelish Mini Nail Surface Cleanse. Finish off with Gelish Mini Nourish Cuticle Oil.

Lucky Charms

  1. Apply Gelish Mini Foundation and cure.
    2. Apply Gelish Mini in Dear Johnny Green and cure. Apply once more and cure again.
    3. For the dots, you can either create them using Gelish Mini in Bronzed, or, use Gelish Mini Structure Gel as a glue. To do so, drop a circular dot on the center of each nail (do not cure). Then, place a gold rhinestone stud on top of each and cure.
    4. Use Bronzed along with a dotting tool and place more dots and studs on both sides next to the center stud. Repeat on all fingers.
    6. Darken dots by adding another coat and cure.
    7. Apply Gelish Mini Top It Off, cure and clean with Gelish Mini Nail Surface Cleanse. Finish off with Gelish Mini Nourish Cuticle Oil.
