It's already March, which means St. Patrick's Day is coming up quick! Such a fun holiday, even if all you do to celebrate is get festive with your nails. I've done a simple design anyone can try, and it will guarantee that you'll stay pinch-free this year!
Get the colors
The first thing to do is pick a few coordinating colors for your theme. For this look, I used Sinful Colors Irish Green, Essie Blanc for my middle finger, Zoya Ziv as the base to my ring finger accent nail and Color Club gold glitter over Ziv.
For my shamrock art, I used a green acrylic paint from a craft store, but nail polish will just as easily work. Acrylic paint is very inexpensive, so I like to use it for nail art. That way, I don't waste as much polish. It's also good for beginners because if you mess up, it comes right off with water and you can try again.
Get the tools
You will also need a few tools for this look. You need some kind of work space to put a few drops of paint on. I personally use a plastic lid from an old Tupperware container. You can use wax paper, a paper plate or anything to use as a palette.
I also used a medium-sized dotting tool. If you don't have one, try using the end of a bobby pin or even a toothpick. Those will both do the trick. Lastly, I used a rhinestone accent for the middle of the shamrock. You need some tweezers for placement and some clear coat nail polish.
