These easy St. Patrick’s Day nails are something anyone can do. I may not find a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow this year but I can certainly rock these gold nails for St. Patrick’s Day instead. I’ve seen all sorts of super creative St. Patrick’s Day nail designs but most of them are totally beyond me. I do not have the time or talent to draw little rainbows or little pots of gold coins on my nails. I just don’t. Trust me. I’ve tried and it’s not pretty.
Easy St. Patrick’s Day Nails
These easy St. Patrick’s Day nails can be changed up a bit depending on what polish you have on hand. I did a base gold with green glitter. You could turn it around and do a base green with gold glitter. It’s up to you and what types of nail polish colors you like to wear.
You will need one base color and one glitter color. If you do any type of nail polish on a regular basis, I highly recommend that you use a base coat or rubberizing coat first. It will not only help your polish last longer, it will help protect your nails.
You can choose to go with high gloss or matte for the base color. I went with a traditional gloss (not high gloss) by SinfulColors called Gold Medal as the base. I used two coats for opaque coverage.
After letting it dry completely, I followed with two coats of Cinapro Nail Sugar in Hyperactive. I have no clue where I got this. It’s got a neat top where you press a button on the top of the polish and it lights up. I think I picked it up at TJMaxx a while ago. Either way, any color green glitter or sparkle would work as the top coat. I used two coats so you can really see the green.
That’s it. That is all there is to it. Just do a base and glitter. It’s fun and festive and easy enough to do that even a beginner can manage.
