St Patricks Day Nail Art and Tutorial

NOTHING TO DISCLOSE
Hey, lovely ladies!
Happy st Patricks day to you all who celebrates!
To be honest, I don't know very much about this festival personally because we in India don't celebrate it, but being a nail artist for over 2 years now, I very much enjoy creating this theme nails for you all who likes to celebrate it:)

St patricks day nails

I did these 3 simple nail art looks in this theme which were quite fun to do. I will show you one by one explaining in short the way I achieved them :) with also a link to each design tutorial:)

So let's begin!!

St patricks day nails

The first look I did is this simple stripes and clover leaf combo, this one pretty much made me happy because of how crisp the lines came out.

See how crispy they came out? So clean!!

Polishes I used:
- Azature 'Faint White Diamond'
- Faces 'Kermit Green'
- Bella Reine Cosmetics 'Four leaf clover'
- Hk Girl Topcoat

Tools used:
- Snail Vinyls 'clover' vinyl
- Striping tape  


Method:
  1. I started with a plain white base polish from Azature on all my nails.
  2. Once it was completely dry, on my pointer and the ring finger, I placed striping tapes vertically leaving an equal gap between each of the tapes.
  3. Then painted Faces Kermit Green over the tape and removed the vinyl after the green dried completely.(Yes! I didn't remove the tape while the polish was still wet to get these crispy lines which I did get!!)
  4. Now onto my middle and pinky finger, I placed individual clover stencils in different parts of the nail at once and then filled the space with the light and dark green and removed it while it was still wet.
  5. Sealed everything with the HK girl top coat. And Done!

Plaid nail art

The second look I created are these plaid clover nails! Doesn't that sound amazing? Yeah, it did to me too but when I actually started doing these, honestly I got furious at one point and wanted to throw it all away, but tried to stay cam and complete it. It was kind of a nail fail to me because of how clumsy it got with the sheer polish.

Polishes I used:
- Azature 'Faint White Diamond'
- Painted polish Woodland whimsy
- Green jelly/sheer polish
- Lancome matte Top coat

Tools used: 
- Snail Vinyls 'medium straight' vinyl
- Mitty cleanup brush and thin brush


Method:
  1. I started with a plain white base polish from Azature on all my nails.
  2. Placed medium straight vinyl vertically on my pointer, medium and pinky finger.(Did one nail at a time, though)
  3. Painted the jelly green polish over the vinyl and removed them while the polish was still wet.
  4. Using a thin brush, I painted thick horizontal lines overlapping the vertical ones creating a plaid look.
  5. then with the dark green and a thin brush again, drew squares where both the vertical and horizontal lines were overlapping.
  6. Now for my ring nail, I used big dotter to create four hearts placed in a position where all their tips were intersecting creating a leaf look using the Painted polish Woodland whimsy. Then drew the stem as well. 
  7. Topped everything with the matte top coat to finish the look.

Single chevron nail art

The last look I created is these fun and holographic single chevron nails. Among all of these, I think my favorite is this one only because of how pretty it looked on my nails. Simplicity is the best  right!!?

Single chevron nail art

Polishes I used:
- Painted polish Blinded by bubbly
- Painted polish Woodland whimsy
- Maybelline Mint mojito
- Hk Girl Topcoat

Tools used:
- Nail Candi liquid tape (for easy cleanup)
- Whatsupnails Skinny chevrons
- Mitty brush for filling the design
- A makeup sponge


Method:
  1. I painted all of the nails with Painted polish Blinded by bubbly and let it dry.
  2. Placed single chevron vinyl on my nails leaving an equal gap between each.
  3. Filled the gaps with Painted polish Woodland whimsy and Maybelline Mint mojito alternatively.
  4. Removed the vinyl while the polish was wet(Or you can try the after drying method too, it works like a charm) and sealed everything with the Top coat.
