If you’ve been on the lookout for St. Patrick’s Day nails with an effortless and minimalist aesthetic – then you’re in luck! Below are some of the most gorgeous green nails and festive manicures that will be perfect for your day or night out on St. Patty’s.

This list has everything from classic designs to cute and playful nails to modern and eye-catching manis, so no matter what vibe you’re going for – there are definitely St. Patrick’s Day nails below that are a must-try for you in 2024!

Gradient Colorblock

Medium almond nails that are half nude and half color featuring gradient yellow and green shades

Go for a green gradient – with a twist! These simple but playful nails are perfect for anything from brunch to a night on the town.

Chrome Details

Short pink nude almond nails and two accent nails, one with a green chrome tip and the other with a green chrome three leaf clover

If you love to add a touch of festive flair to natural nails, I suggest a cute and simple design like this.

Light Green & Glitter Waves

Short squoval nails with glittery green and lime green green nail polish and accent nails with wave details

In my opinion, glitter works for any holiday nail design! Green waves with glitter accents will look gorgeous on St. Patty’s Day and will still work as an everyday mani. 

Rainbow Half-Moons

Short nude nails with rainbow half moons

If you want minimal St. Patrick’s Day nails that aren’t the classic green – I recommend dainty rainbow nail art like the ones here.

Glitter Green, Gold Beads + Pearls

Long shimmering light green almond nails with gold beads and pearls

Go for luxurious St. Patty nails with glittering green nail polish, pearl accents, and (of course) pops of gold!

Green Tips w/ Clover Detail

Medium nude almond nails with dark green French tips with light green borders and an accent nail with a four leaf clover

I love the touch of light green with these French tips, and the clover detail is adorable!

Bright Green w/ Silver Foil

Short square nails with light green polish solid nails and nude nails and two accent nails with green waves with silver foil borders

Are you looking for elegant St. Patrick’s Day nails? This stunning mani is an excellent choice for a classy but totally festive aesthetic.

Green Chrome + Clovers

Green chrome will definitely be on-trend for St. Patrick’s Day in 2024. And you can elevate this design even more with the playful clover accents!

Wavy French Tips

Medium nude coffin nails with waves of dark green, light green, and white tips

Wavy green and white French tips would be my top recommendation if you want a manicure with a subtle festive look. 

St. Patty’s Frenchies w/ Rainbows + Clovers

Short round nude nails with green and gold glitter tips with rainbow and clover nail art at the base

Upgrade a classic green manicure with gold glitter and festive nail art! And since it’s hard to choose whether to add cute clovers or colorful rainbows to your mani – why not choose both?

Simple Mani w/ Glitter Nails

Medium almond nails with solid green nail polish and green glitter accent nails

A solid-colored green mani is a timeless choice for St. Patrick’s Day nails, but don’t be afraid to add a bold and fun aesthetic here with the glittery accent nails!

Chrome Frenchies

Long nude almond nails with green chrome French tips

Want green nails with an effortless yet alluring look? Green chrome tips are definitely the way to go!

Clover Accents

Short nude nails with single three leaf clovers on two accent nails

A three-leaf clover instantly evokes thoughts of St. Patrick’s Day, so this simple nail art is really all you need for classy, cute, and minimal holiday nails.

Green Gradient Nails

Short almond nails with gradient green polish

I love these simple but fun green gradient nails. This nail design would make the perfect accessory for any outfit on a St. Patty’s night out!

St. Patrick’s Day Swirls

Long glossy nude square nails with light, medium, and dark green swirls

I love incorporating swirls into festive nail designs! They’re minimal and elegant yet still have a fun and youthful feel that’s perfect for any holiday. 

Shimmering Green Dots

Short round nude nails with green crystals

If you ask me, sparkly green dot nails have the perfect blend of minimalism with glamor and fun!

Gradient Tips + Pearls

Medium nude almond nails with gradient green French tips and pearls

This is another great choice for sophisticated St. Patrick’s Day nails. Whether you’ll be dining out with friends or having an intimate party at home – these nails will have others green with envy!

Chrome Coffin Nails

Long coffin nails with green chrome

Go big and bold with long shimmering chrome coffin nails! I think these are a perfect choice if you’ll be out and about on St. Patty’s night.

Green Mani + Four Leaf Clovers

Long green almond nails with a nude accent nail featuring a green clover

Transform a classic green nail design into one with festive flair by adding a clover accent nail and an Irish flag French tip!

Spring + Kelly Green Tips

Medium-length nude almond nails with alternating light and medium green tips

I love this refined nail design! Alternating shades of green are so simple, but the stunning contrast really takes this mani to the next level.

Marbled Mani w/ Clovers

Long nude almond nails with marbled green swirls and glittering green clovers

In my opinion, glittering clovers and marbled green details come together for bold but elegant St. Patrick’s Day nails!

Green Velvet Frenchies

Medium square milky white nails with green velvet tips

Of course, velvet details deserve a spot on this list of St. Patrick’s Day nails! I recommend this beautiful design for a laid-back night out this holiday.

Gradient & Gold Charms

Short almond nails with a nude bottom and gradient green tops with gold gems

Green gradient earns another spot on my list, this time accented by gold studs! This look has a fantastic balance of daring and refined.

French Tips & Clover Nail Art

Long nude almond nails with white and green French tips and a plain nude accent nail with clover nail art

Dainty clover nail art is an easy way to give your manicure more of a fun aesthetic. And I love how these details don’t take away from the overall elegant vibe of these nails.

Glittering Peek-a-Boo Rainbows

Short nude almond nails with glittering rainbow half moons

Add some shimmer to your rainbows this St. Patrick’s Day for a manicure that will stand out all night!

Lucky Charms Mani

Long light green almond nails with nude accent nails featuring lucky charm nail art

I cannot get over how cute this nail design is! Lucky charm nail art adds a unique and fun-loving touch to these St. Patrick’s Day nails, and I love these for a night out with the girls in 2024.

Ombre Frenchies + White Clover

Medium nude square nails with gradient green tips and a white clover accent

The ombre style of these French tips is so cute, and the white clover accent is the perfect festive detail! I think the contrast of the white clover on dark green nail polish is stunning, but a gold clover would look amazing as well.

Gold Glitter + Three Leaf Clovers

Medium nude squoval nails with gold glitter and green three leaf clovers

Start your St. Patrick’s Day nails with a base coat of gold glitter for a soft shimmer and a fun vibe. And, of course, you can’t forget little clovers to finish up this mani and have you holiday ready!


St. Patrick’s Day is such a fun and laid-back holiday, so having cute but simple nails fits the vibe perfectly! I hope these gorgeous St. Patrick’s Day nails inspired you and you’ve found your lucky mani for St. Patty’s in 2024!
