Nailing it for St. Patrick's Day

Friday, March 16, 2012   |   2 comments


I'll be showing you my Paddy's Day nails tomorrow - both hands! - but for anyone in need of some inspiration right now, here's a quick round-up of some of my favourite easy to DIY green manicures from around the web.

GREEN & GOLD...






EMERALD BLING...






AND ONE SPARKLE-FREE EXAMPLE...



For anyone itching to do some simple Paddy's Day nail art, why not break out the shamrocks? They're not that much more difficult than polka dots or hearts, really.

Just use a dotting tool, the nib of a ballpoint pen, hairclip or toothpick to dot on three leaves and a stem in the colour of your choice.

What will you be wearing for the day that's in it?

Oh, and for any American readers: yes, it is Paddy. No, not Patty. Ever. See here if you need convincing, and then please spread the word!
