The big day’s tomorrow which means, I’m guessing, that if you’re planning nails you’re doing ’em today. So what better way to inspire you than to have a wander around Instagram, in particular its #greennails and #stpatricksdaynails hashtags to see what clever peeps have already come up with?
Lots, as it happens, including those stylin’ talons, right. There’s a better peep at them in the gallery but they’re by mistress of nails, Lynda Moorhead. You can check out her work on her website Lyndar The Merciless, or follow her on Instagram at lyndamoorhead.
We’ve more ideas where that came from too – check ’em out, Frillseekers, by clicking the pic. Got one of your own to share? Tweet us @frillseeker!
Hello Kitty Patrick's Day Nails? Yes please, Amorenailsid.
These teal, glitter and tiger stripe talons from Beautifulintentionsgc are for you if the more trad type doesn't suit.
Simple, pretty and effective, this green, gold and glitter mix from Beautyinspirationista should be achievable by most.
Wowsa, is all I can say to Decodigits' complex Leprechaun buckle and rainbow accent affair. Could I copy it? I doubt it, but it looks brill.
Just fancy a simple green creme shade? Then Dreamyourdreams' Essie offering'll be right up your street.
Shamrocks, glitter and lucky horseshoes; Georginascutt's nails've got it all going on.
An off-beat tribal take on the St Patrick's day nail from Haleyfbabyy.
Cute shamrock and rainbow nail wraps make this one a cinch, but Jen_e_beee has painted her little finger with some gold glitter for the all-all round experience.
Mint and matte glitter make for an effective combo from Mcpolish.
An easy but dramatic result with a dark green jelly polish that's got lots of big pailettes inside. Nice work, Polished_off.
It looks dramz but isn't hard to do: forest green on all nails excepting the accent, done in gold glitter with a shamrock, makes for a stylin' result from Randizzy808.
Looking for a little inspo on shades and brands to use? No worries, So_nailicious has you covered.
These'll get you noticed, eh? They're from Traceyloveslacquer.
Not yer most traditional of St Patrick's Day nails, I'll grant you, but X_vans offering still passes muster.
