St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Nail Art

My freehand Leprechaun nail art for St. Patrick's Day!

My freehand Leprechaun nail art for St. Patrick’s Day!

Have you seen my St. Patrick’s Day rainbow pot of gold nail art yet? I did those a few days ago and then decided to follow up with another themed look today! This time I have St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun nail art to show you, which I did freehand again.

I normally don’t go all out for St. Patty’s but I had the idea for these and I figured they were just too cute not to try!

For this look I used China Glaze 2030 as my gold, Zoya Veruschka for my green, and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Pumpkin Queen for my orange. The white of the leprechaun’s eyes was done with Essie Coconut Cove and the black on his eyes and hat was done with Orly Liquid Vinyl, which has quickly become a staple polish for my nail art looks.

Simple strawberry nail art

Today I have some really cute nail art to show you. I have often seen these nails on Pinterest and always wanted to try them myself, so I decided it was now or never. Just in time for summer I did some simple strawberry nail art, and I was surprised at how easy it was! The design looks a little tricky at first glance, and seeing all the amazing photos on Pinterest was a little intimidating, but this nail art look was actually really simple.

Feeling Tropical with simple Floral Nail Art

Last week I posted a zebra print nail art design for the #31dc2016weekly nail art Instagram tag, and this week I have another installment to show you. The theme for this week’s prompt was flowers, so I did a pretty pink and white floral nail art design. It took hardly any time at all but it looks really cute and tropical, which is perfect for a summer weekend!

You can see some of my previous nail art designs over on my Instagram account here!

What I used

The floral nail art I have to show you today was done with a MoYou London stamping plate. This plate if from the Tropical Collection and I chose a big Hawaiian flower to stamp. My base polish is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in the shade OMGhost, which is a crisp white. It took me two coats to get perfectly opaque white nails. I have recently become a big fan of white nails and left them plain for a few hours before adding my floral nail art on top.

The nail polish I used to stamp the flowers over my white base was China Glaze Winter Berry, which is a lovely berry red from an old holiday collection. I love this shade on my nails and will have to swatch it soon to show you. I promise it is a red polish in real life, but when I stamped it for my floral nail art it totally turned pink. I think it might be because it was such a thin layer used to stamp, and it was layered over a bright white base. Either way, the floral nail art design worked well with pink flowers so it still turned out fine even though I meant for it to be red.

I have actually used this MoYou London stamping plate for a different floral nail art look a few weeks ago, which you can check out here.

What do you think of my white and pink/red floral nail art? I like how tropical it looks and it makes me think of a Hawaiian vacation, which is nice to daydream about when it looks like I will have a few rainy days ahead of me.
