NAILS: Get Lucky this St. Patrick’s Day with Red Carpet Manicure


St. Patrick’s Day is here tomorrow and just what you need to get in the spirit and "feel lucky!" Whether you’re looking for a pot of gold or channeling your inner leprechaun, here are step-by-step tutorial from Red Carpet Manicure Nail Technician Candace Szpeich for St. Patrick Day nail art looks, using both gel and nail lacquer polishes.

Leprechaun Belt (GEL)

1. First, apply Prep ($2.59) and Structure ($9.99). Then cure under the LED light.

3. Using a striper brush, apply a thick line of "Black Stretch Limo" across the lower half of the nail and cure.

 4. Add a belt (square) over the middle of the black line using "I Am So Honored" and cure.
Last, apply Brilliance and cure.

Pot O'Gold (LACQUER)

1. First, apply one coat of Clingy Base Coat.

2. Next, apply 2 coats of "My Lucky Charm."

3. Paint a black pot on the bottom right of nail using the nail lacquer version of “Black Stretch Limo."

4. Then, using a striper brush, paint a rainbow using your favorite RCM nail lacquer shades such as orange "Flirt Alert," royal blue "RSVP," purple "9 Inch Heels," red "Red Carpet Exclusive," lavender "Romantic Comedy," or a metallic rose gold "Mink Coat."

5. Add gold glitter pieces from RCM’s "Gems and Jewels - Golden Dust" collection to the top of the pot/base of rainbow.

6. Last, apply one coat of Shine On Top Coat.

  1. I am totally trying to do, or will have done if I cannot, the green glitter hat nails! Then a pic will be sent to you because it was by your inspiration! That, and GREEN is my #1 of all time always favorite color followed by blue, orange, and lilac.

  2. Thanks so much - I truly look forward to it! Xox~Ev
