Shamrock vine nail art is a cool St. Patrick’s Day fingernail look that is interesting and easy to do. To complete this fingernail look, just three nail polish colors are needed, white, green and gold. You will also need a dotting tool, striper brush and clear nail polish.

  • To begin, apply one or two coats of white nail polish. Wait for the nail polish to dry thoroughly before moving on to starting any designs.
  • Once the white nail polish dries completely, use a striper brush and green nail polish to make random, curvy lines over the entire nail. The curvy lines will represent the vines of the shamrocks.
  • Use the same green polish and a dotting tool to create dots in bunches of three, these dots will represent mini shamrocks.
  • Finally, use your striper brush and gold nail polish to make more random, curvy lines in empty areas just for decorative purposes. Finish off your look with a top coat of clear nail polish.
