Rugby World Cup 2015 Ireland

We're big Rugby fans here at Simplynailz.com and with the  World Cup about to start we're showing our support for the Irish team in the best way we know how, fabulous nails!

 

Check out these three easy looks for you to do at home.

1. Simply Green

For the minimal effort supporter why not paint your nails with Ciate Superficial. This deep dark green is elegant and 'Irish' all in one.

2. Shamrock

Take it a step further by creating a shamrock design on the accent finger.  We used love heart gems in pale green for this shamrock.

 3. Green and White Jersey nails

Paint all your nails except for the accent nail green.  We used Rimmel's Shout out loud for the green and paint the accent finger with Rimmel's White Hot Love, from the Irish rugby nails set. Allow to fully dry and apply three round gems to the accent nail.  Finish the look with a top coat to hold it all in place.

 4. Rugby Stripes

Rugby Stripes

Paint all your nails except for the accent nail green.  We used Rimmel's Shout out loud for the green and paint the accent finger with Rimmel's White Hot Love, from the Irish rugby nails set. Allow to fully dry. 

Apply white striping tape diagonally on the green nails.  Cut the tape longer than what you need for easier application.  I find the white can be a little transparent over dark colour nails so I apply two layers. 

Next apply the green striping tape in the opposite direction again cutting it longer than needed. 

To help the look last that bit longer I apply a tiny dab of nail glue to the edges of nail before cutting off the excess with a cuticle cutters.  Apply the top coat and allow to dry fully.
