St. Patrick’s Day Nails

IMG_20170312_213223_454.jpg

Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”

Then apply a base color of your choice, I chose a green to stick with the St. Patrick’s Day theme. I used Sally Girl’s “Doup-812044.”

With all of the colors of the rainbow and a thin detail brush, paint thin curved lines on the nail so that it looks like a rainbow is going across three of your nails. Try to make it look like it connects so have the next nail pick up where the last one left off. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” brush and Apple Barrel’s “Bright Red”, “Pumpkin Orange”, “Yellow”, “Christmas Green”, “Cobalt Blue”, and “Concord Grape” (all acrylic paints).

With a gold color and a small dotting tool add some gold to this pot. I used DecoArt’s “Glorious Gold” acrylic paint.

On my thumb a pinky finger I created a leprechauns uniform. I first used Winstonia’s “Medium” striper brush to create a thick black line going across the nail horizontally and closer towards the tip of the nail.

I then used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush to create an outline of a square in the center of this line.

Lastly, apply a top coat. I used Seche Vite’s “Dry Fast Top Coat.”

Three Leaf Clover Nails

 

IMG_20170305_205854_956.jpg

Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”

IMG_3550.JPG

Apply a base color of your choice, I chose a green color for St. Patrick’s Day. I used a Sally Girl with no name #812165.

To start the three leaf clovers place three sets of dots, one set horizontally towards the tip and the other two sets on each side vertically. I used a medium sized dotting tool and Sinful Colors’ “Happy Ending.”

With a smaller dotting tool turn these dots into heart shapes by adding a triangle shape on the one end on each set of dots.

With a dotting tool create a curved line similar to a “j” for the steams of the clovers.

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Seche Vite’s “Dry Fast Top Coat.”

St. Patrick’s Day Nails (Plaid and 3 leaf clovers)

1457903230023

Start off with a base coat, I used Essie’s “Grow Stronger” base coat.

IMG_1616

Paint all your nails a light green color, I used one of Sally Girl’s mini nail polishes that I sadly don’t have the name for and I applied three coats.

IMG_1618

With that same color and a striper brush, outline the grid. This is kind of hard to see in the picture. I used Winstonia’s “Long” brush.

IMG_1621

Using a darker green, outline every other square. I used another Sally Girl min that I do not have the name for.

IMG_1624

Then, fill in the outlined squares with the same darker green color. I used Winstonia’s “Fine Line” brush.

IMG_1626

With a green-yellow nail polish and a striper brush, create thin lines going down each row and column. I used Butter London’s “Wellies”.

Ring Finger Nails:

Using a medium dotting tool and the same darker green polish, place two dots on the nail. You will need to make three clover leaves, one on each side and one above those, so leave enough space.

IMG_1629

With the same tools, connect these two dots with lines towards the middle of the nail.

IMG_1630

Create a small curved stem, I used the “Fine Line” brush again.

Lastly, apply a top coat. I used Essie’s “Gel-Setter” top coat.
