Saint Patrick’s Day Nail Looks

I wasn’t really planning to do any Saint Patrick’s Day nails on myself, but after I did my sister-in-law’s nails I felt inspired. She went to a SPD party so she wanted something fun. This is how her nails turned out:

Cute, right?

I obviously also went the green route. I started off with China Glaze Gaga For Green as my base color.

Then I used Color Club Holiday Splendor for the chevron design on my tips.

I should have left it at that, but then I decided to add a shamrock sticker and rhinestones.

Then I thought to myself that the rhinestones looked pretty tacky so I pried them off. Unfortunately, this left a ding on my nails.

And because it bothered me that I could still see where the rhinestones used to be, I then tried to cover it up with glitter.

So by this point, I thought that my nails looked pretty gross and just took everything off and started all over.

This was my final look. I used OPI Mermaid Tears as the base color and Color Club Holiday Splendor for the chevron tips. I used only one design on my accent nail and I was pleased with the way they turned out.

I had a nice SPD after all! I went to dinner with two friends whom I have known since we were kids. After we stuffed ourselves as Lucille’s BBQ, we went to a karaoke lounge and sang all the embarrassing songs that we could think of. Ahhh…it was a lot of fun.

How did you spend SPD? Did you sport any fun and festive nail designs?

    1. Thanks! I never know when to stop so this seems to happen often. Maybe one of these days I'll learn my lesson! πŸ™‚ The green glitter is definitely the star of my glitter collection, I think.

  1. These are so CUTE!!! I love the green on green. πŸ™‚ These are kinda a cheerful version of my dark SPD nails πŸ˜€ I actually really liked the ones that you added the glittery line to. I like your final ones but actually those with the glitter along the chevron lines are my favorite. The greens just compliment each other so well! I love these!!

    1. Thank you! They just felt like way too much with the glitter line. And yes, I was inspired by your darker version. I hadn't done chevron tips in AGES and had forgotten how easy and cute they look.

      1. I know! They're the easiest nail art things ever!! Yours were so cute. I actually might do them just for fun. Green isn't just for SPD! πŸ™‚
