Last Minute St Patrick’s Day Nails

Published March 16, 2014 by beginnersnailart

Hi everyone. Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but my nails have been a bit of a mess lately. Today’s design is a quick and easy design which is inspired by @QTPlace’s Colourful Flower design. You can see her YouTube tutorial here: (YouTube account is Creativenailart). For the design you’ll need a white or nude base colour, four green polishes from dark to light, a black polish, a small dotting tool and a toothpick. I used Essie’s Limo-scene for my base. My greens are (l-r) Technic’s Sea Foam, Beauty UK’s Sage Green, Nails Inc’s Northumberland Avenue and Essie’s Sew Psyched. My black is Barry M’s Black.
