They're Magically Delicious!

Blue half moons, purple horseshoes, pink hearts, pots of gold, and green clovers can only make you think of one thing....Lucky Charms! Yum! Theres nothing like a bland oat cereal spunked up with some colorful marshmallows. The marshmallows have changed up so much over the years I didn't know which ones I wanted, so I picked the ones I remembered the most as a kid--although I believe the pot of gold is a fairly new edition, but who doesn't want any gold, especially a pot full. Heehee. I've been itching to do this design and I'm not sure why (my favorite cereal is actually Cinnamon Toast Crunch) but I kept puttin it off because I was so intimidated by Lucky (the leprechaun). I don't wanna toot my own horn or anything but I'm very pleased with how he came out (toot toot). They're always after me lucky charms!


I used Orly's 'Poison Apple' as a base. For Lucky, on the thumb, I used China Glaze's 'Sunset Sail' for his face, Nina Ultra Pro's 'Guava' and Orly's 'Truly Tangerine', mixed together for his hair, Nail Art Pen by Nubar--Basic White for his eyes and mouth, Nail Art Pen by Nubar--Black for his eyes, and Sinful Color's 'HD Nails' for his hat and shirt. For "Lucky Charms" I used Nail Art Pen by Nubar--Sunny Yellow. For the rainbow on the pinky I used Orly's 'Snowcone', Zoya's 'Pippa', and Orly's 'It's Not You, Its Me', and for the clover, on the pointer, I used Sinful Color's 'HD Nails', all topped off with two coats of Seche Vite.

I used Orly's 'Poison Apple' as a base. For the pot of gold I used Zoya's 'Pippa' and Orly's 'Solid Gold. For the pink heart I used Orly's 'Its Not You, Its Me'. For the green clover/hat combo I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri 'Lickety-Split Lime' and Sally Hansen SALON's 'All the White Stuff' mixed together for the hat, for the clover I used Sinful Color's 'HD Nails'. For the purple horseshoe I used OPI's 'Done Out in Deco' and China Glaze's 'Grape Pop' mixed together. For the blue half moon I used Orly's 'Snowcone', all topped off with two coats of Seche Vite.
