Guest Post Sam of Polished Art

Morning friends!

Today's guest poster is the lovely Sam from Polished Art. Sam posts some great nail art so let's let her take it away!


Hello everyone!

I am SO excited to be doing a guest post for Stephanie today! I absolutely love this blog – her nails are complete perfection. So when she replied to my email and said she’d love me to do a guest post for her, I will admit I had a bit of a girly screaming moment...

So anyhoo, I ummed and ahhed for aaages about what to do for this post. I finally settled on an Aboriginal art inspired manicure. Well, that was a complete disaster (cue mini meltdown), so this is what I’m showing you instead! A little while ago I was lucky enough to win a giveaway hosted by the lovely Rebecca over at Polish Etc . The prize was a polish of my choice from Pretty Serious. I hadn’t heard of the brand before this, so I looked through some of Rebecca’s swatches, and oh my giddy aunt! So many pretties! I eventually settled on this lovely:

This is Liquid Leprechaun – a gorgeous green glitter, with some gold hexes thrown in for good measure. I used two coats over Barry M Spring Green, although actually I don’t think you need undies with it.

Naturally, I had to add a leprechaun!

I used the DIY decal technique that’s been around on a few blogs recently, where you paint topcoat on to a poly pocket, do your design on there, and then top coat again and peel it off. I extra cheated though by tracing this little fella (you wouldn’t like to see my freehand attempts at drawing faces!). Although I traced him off my computer screen, and my computer BSOD’d mid-leprechaun...not ideal.

I hope you’ve all enjoyed my post, and thank you again to Stephanie for this amazing opportunity! I hope she’s having a lovely time relaxing after finishing her degree :)


Aww how cute is that leprechaun! It looks perfect against Liquid Leprechaun! Thanks so much to Sam for being here today for me! I hope you are all having a great day!


  1. The little leprechaun is so cute!! :) This makes me think of St. Patrick's Day!

  2. Lovely mani. I like her honesty about cheating with the leprechaun lol but even so it still looks good.

  3. Thank you again for letting me guest post! :)
