How To Do Simple Designs on Nails?
Here a few nail polish and nail design essentials to get your perfect look.
Before applying nail polish, start by shaping your nail. Use a 100/180 grit emery board to shape your nails. Then get rid of your cuticles with the Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover and a cuticle pusher. Wash your hands to remove any excess cuticle remover.
Next use a base coat to protect your nail from staining. I like to use the O.P.I Natural Nail Base Coat. After your base coat dries, use any of the nail designs below to create simple St. Patrick’s Day Nails!
The Best Green Nail Polish
- Holo Taco “Here for the Payday” Light Green Polish
- Essie “Off Tropics” Forest Green Polish
- Sally Hansen “Fanta-Seas” Green Glitter Polish
- O.P.I “The Pass is Always Greener” Light Green Polish
- Holo Taco “Green Screen” Clover Green Polish
