St. Patrick’s Day Nail Art

It’s St. Patrick’s Day today, so here’s a fun nail design you can throw on just in time for your party!

St Patrick's Day Nail Art

How to get this nail polish look:

  • Paint your nails a bright green – I used Joe Fresh Lime Juice (unfortunately I don’t think you can buy this online!) and OPI Did It On ‘Em (from the Nicki Minaj collection) on my accent nail
  • Once completely dry you’re going to stamp the diagonal design from Konad plate s6 on your accent nail. I used the Konad special polish in Green for my stamping polish.
  • On all of my other nails I used the little shamrock looking design from plate m81, and stamped it on my nails using the green and white stamping polish. Just place them on randomly and fill up your nail!
  • Once my little shamrocks were on, I put on a gold glitter top coat (not on the accent nail). The gold glitter made the white polish turn  a cream colour which worked out perfectly.
  • Once your glitter top coat is on, you can finish the design off with your favourite top coat!

Earlier this week, I attended the Joe Fresh runway show during Toronto Fashion Week. It was pretty inspiring, so I decided to give Joe Fresh nail products a try!  I picked up 3 nail polish colours, one of them is the green I used as a base in this manicure (on my 4 fingers). I can’t decide if I love or hate this polish…It’s incredibly sheer, I actually used 3 coats and while it looks pretty opaque in the pictures I can still see through it on my nails in real life. On the plus side, it dries rather quickly which makes putting on those 3 coats less daunting. The other amazing thing about Joe Fresh nail polish is that it is incredibly affordable. One bottle is only $4, or you can buy three bottles for $10!

The other 2 colours I picked up are a bright pink and a bright blue – I’m guessing those will be quite transparent as well, but for now I’m willing to give them another chance.

St. Patrick's Day Nails

St. Patrick’s Day is next weekend, and I love any excuse for a festive nail art design!

To achieve this look:

  • Paint four of your nails with China Glaze Cha Cha Cha, and one of your nails with China Glaze White on White (or alternate fingers, or just choose one colour!)
  • Once completely dry you can stamp on the white clover. I used plate A02, which I purchase from Maytheps in a set.
  • Then use Konad plate m81, and stamp on the little clovers from the full nail design. I stamped the design twice, and then stamped the little one on a third time
  • Finish it off with your favourite top coat – or a glitter top coat!
