DIY St. Patrick's Day Nail Art

Mar 14, 2013

It's St. Patrick's Day this weekend! That means it's the perfect opportunity to get creative with nail art. That's right - there is so much more than just wearing green clothing. You can go one step further and express yourself with nail polish (and a bit of glitter). Kidzworld has scoured the blogosphere for easy DIY ways to decorate your nails. Check out our edit of the best below and get painting! All you need is nail polish (preferably green of course), nail polish pens and glitter

RAINBOWS

Choose your favorite shade of green nailpolish and make sure to do at least a double coat. Let them dry and then go nuts with multi-color nail art pens. Simply paint a rainbow on all nails or just pick one to make it stand out.

GO DOTTY

This one is so super easy! You can either paint white polka dots onto green nails or vice versa. Or go lime green with gold polka dots - whatever you're in the mood for!

GOLD GLITTER

Simply paint your nails green and put gold glitter on one half of the nail. So sparkly and festive!

GREEN CHECKS

This one's a bit more complicated but the payoff is worth it! All you need is green, white and black polish and you can do this cool check pattern yourself!

SHAMROCKED

More subdued than the rest, this design still makes a big statement! The shamrock can be any color but you gotta have green in there somewhere!

I don't really like dark colors and nail art that's too much.

If you guys have to walk together and there is no choice in the matter - YOU be the initiator of great conversation. Confidently smile - and talk to BOTH of them at the same time. It's so helpful to be able to navigate a conversation generously. That means you be the one on the high road - ask questions, people love talking about things that are interesting to them. Ask questions and figure out what common things all three of you have together and before you know it your walk will be over. Hope this helps. Let us know what happens. Inclusivity totally kicks butt over exclusivity!  thank you soooo much for the amazing advice, unfortunately I don't really have a choice because my friend walks to my house where her mum picks her up so it would hurt her feelings if I said no to walking with her but ill definitely try yor suggestions in the second paragraph. Thanks

I have this one best friend and she is wonderful. But two of my other friends are best friends with each other and when I walk home from school with them I feel really left out and ignored. I don't want to ruin their friendship but I don't know what to do about it. Any suggestions?
