St. Patrick's Day Manicures


These two manicures are similar but use different techniques. I liked the bright colors.  As you probably already know I like to wear dressy/ casual styles. 

I was able to wear both manicures while doing daily errands and at my full time job. 


Both manicures took minutes to do.


The first one is an ombre nail design, the second a water marble design using no water. 





Here is what you need:


Base Coat 

White  Nail Color 

- Light Green Nail Polish 

- Dark Green Nail Polish 

Top Coat 


- For Manicure #1, you will need a makeup sponge


- For Manicure #2, you will need a toothpick or pin









Manicure #1

Ombre Nails 

- Start by applying a base coat to the nails. 
- Apply a white nail polish - you may need 2 coats to make the color opaque. 
- Once white polish is dry, brush the makeup sponge with some dark green polish (I used an eye shadow sponge applicator) and dab onto to the nail - closer to the cuticle. 
- Then repeat closer to the tip of nail with light  green polish

- Repeat with each polish until you get the desired results.
- This step is optional, apply glitter polish to nails. 
- Allow nails to dry a few minutes and apply a fast drying top coat







Manicure #2

Water Marble Nails

- Apply a base coat to the nails. 
- Apply a white nail polish - you may need 2 coats to make the color opaque. 
- Once white polish is dry, make some small globby dots with both green colors(I didn't do this in any special order). 
- Using a toothpick or pin, gently pull the tip through the polish making swirls.

- Repeat until you achieve the look you want. 
- I also made vertical and horizontal lines in some nails instead of swirls. 
- Allow nails to dry a few minutes and apply a fast drying top coat
