St. Patrick's Day nails

I don't do a lot of holiday/theme nails, but I did want to do some sort of St. Patrick's Day nails even though I won't really be celebrating.  I have a ton of green polishes, but I actually didn't want to go in that direction with the mani so this is what I came up with:
Here's what I used to get this look:
*ILNP Mega (S)--three coats for full coverage as the base polish
Then I tried doing the "dry brush" technique (which I have never done before) to create a rainbow over the nails (thumb to pinky: red/orange, orange/yellow, yellow/green, green/blue, & blue/purple) with the following colors:
*Zoya Sooki (red)
*Zoya Arizona (orange)
*Zoya Darcy* (yellow)
*Zoya Shawn (green)
*Zoya Ryan (blue)
*Zoya Mira (purple)
Then I added a clover glitter from Sinful Colors Feeling Lucky? on each nail.  I do really wish these clovers were green though.

All in all I like how this turned out even if it is mainly a rainbow mani, but with the added clovers it works for St. Patrick's Day.   Will you be celebrating?  Did you do a mani for the day?

*Zoya Darcy was sent to me for my honest review.
