Happy St Patrick’s Day!

I’m only a quarter Irish but I couldn’t let today go without posting a little something dedicated to St Patricks Day!I just did a really simple Irish flag design which only took a few minutes
(my Nan was pretty impressed with it though!)

I used 3 Barry M colours, obviously you can use what ever you have to hand – I picked Spring Green, Matte White and Tangerine.
(if you’re wondering why on earth I have a tangerine nail polish, I’m from Blackpool and a girl’s got to support her local football team every now and then!)
I hope you’ve enjoyed – Are any of you doing anything to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

P.S I know technically the colours should be the other way around to how they appear in the pictures (green, white & orange instead of orange, white & green) but when I look at them they look the right way around!

@Pixelhazard I know! This was harder than some of the more detailed looks - it was so hard trying to get a straight line!
