I love me some St. Paddy's Day! This was the mani I sham"rocked"through the holiday. It actually lasted six days. I used a BC and two coats of Milani Hi-tech. I know some bloggers have said they aren't too happy with the holo, but I thought this was completely eye-catching. I didn't use a topcoat for this one and couldn't really tell the difference. I was going to do a third green mani that night, but me and my babe thought Irish Car Bombs were more important =p.
I also tried my hand at a Bailey's cupcake recipe I came across here. I like to bake, but this was a little more from scratch than I'm used to. I thought they turned out delicious, and so did everyone at work hooray!
The cake was pretty dense and rich, my great friend writes a blog about her cooking adventures ~ TinkyKitchKook ~ and suggested I use sour cream to lighten it up. I'll have to try that next time around. Did you indulge in any Irish fare?
