St. Patrick’s Nail Art Tutorial - Green Polish Swatches and Clover Tutorial

I always try to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with my friends as it’s a fun filled day where the color green reigns supreme, be it in accessories, glittery makeup, tshirts, or even drinks.  To celebrate in my own way, I will be sporting all green polish and some festive St. Patrick’s Day nailart.  I own a broad selection of green polish I wanted to share with you to give you some ideas for your own manicure (links below also include various price points because everyone should own at least one pretty green polish).  I also added a quick and simple four leaf clover tutorial that can transform any basic green manicure into a lucky Irish manicure.

The polishes I showcased and swatched are named: Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Fuzz-Sea, Dolce & Gabbana Wild Green, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mint Sorbet, OPI Amazon, Amazoff from their 2014 Brazil Collection, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Green with Envy, Revlon Posh, and Revlon Eclectic.

Sally Hansen’s Fuzzy Coat polishes are a cute way to achieve a festive nail art look without having to use nail art tools, pens or other polishes.  I love layering this polish over a darker color so the colorful strands stand out more.  OPI’s newly released Amazon, Amazoff, from the 2014 Brazil Collection, is a blue-toned emerald green cream polish that I can’t wait to wear more during the spring season.  Lastly, if you’re looking for the perfect  kelly green color for St. Patrick’s day, Revlon’s “Posh” is your best bet - Revlon’s polishes are affordable at approximately $5 and have a wonderful opaque formula.

Stay Pretty, Mackenzie M.
