I call this manicure "What's Luck Got To Do With It?" (Naming my nail art is half the fun!)

Dia duit! This week, I’m celebrating all things St. Patrick’s Day--or rather, all things luck--with my “What’s Luck Got To Do With It?” nail tutorial.

As an Irish lass, I’m still a little baffled how I managed to stay upright on this, the high holy week of St. Jameson, but I did, and here’s the proof. (The 80 proof.)

So what exactly does luck have to do with St. Patrick’s Day? Turns out, almost nothing. But I have a little insider info on luck. See, a few years ago, when I was back in New York teaching improvisation to MBA students at Columbia University (seriously), a professor told a story that changed my life. He’d read an article about a scientist who proved that luck could be learned. Exciting, right? We'd all like to be a little bit luckier, wouldn't we? I know I would, and since hearing the story, I am!

So grab your favorite drink for this, my learn to be lucky nail art tutorial!

(SPOILER ALERT: I use table salt in this tutorial. It's completely safe and, though I’m not one to follow trends, using salt and pepper on your nails is apparently a hot new trend trend. What will they think of next? If it involves cheese, I am DOWN.)

Here are the colors I used:

  • OPI Designer Series Nail Lacquer in Radiance
  • OPI Nail Lacquer in Did It On 'Em
  • OPI Nail Lacquer in Goldeneye
  • China Glaze Nail Lacquer in White on White
  • China Glaze in Surreal Appeal
  • China Glaze in Liquid Leather

Now, if your manicure doesn't turn out like this, you'll know not to blame bad luck.
