We have a beautiful luck-inspired nail art here, with a touch of the Trinity Knot. The combination of green with gold looks dashing, really.

This one has the basic shapes; you might like it for balance. What I find fascinating is the gradient from glittery dark green to marble mint green.

There are three things I love about these nails: base color, matte finish, and blue-green flakes. The stamps were just a bonus. Do you like this set?

I like the rose gold accent of the Celtic stamps. It’s not apparent, but it’s stunning. What I did not notice right away was the gold cross.

Cool and refreshing… that’s how I want to describe these nails. The french tip is in the color pink, by the way, and it’s glittered. Will you try?

I am in for this beautiful set of black and pink Celtic nails. However, if you want to achieve this appearance, you need to use holographic gel.

This has the same concept, except that the artist used gold instead of pink. I love how ancient it looks. I feel like I am looking at a church crypt.

Matte finish is always a hit for me. Glossy is cool, but matte has that regal vibe, in my opinion. You can gloss this design, though.

Black or super dark navy blue? I’m not sure, but the set looks fantastic. I’d suggest them to those who do not have the time to go to the salon.

It’s the shamrock and Celtic cross. I love how they fit the surface of the nails so well. Also, I admire the ombre glitters on the middle and pinky.

Oh, those rainbows look pretty. But the star here is gonna have to be that Celtic design in the middle. Rainbow nail art isn’t new, but it creates a bit of a St Patrick’s day nail design with the Celtic pattern.

You might not notice it immediately, but the base is a gradient of black to red. You might miss the subtle Ombre look on a casual glance. This gave a unique effect on the appearance of the Celtic stamps.

The Celtic stamp is lovely, but the checkered pattern caught my attention. I love the color combo of white, green, dark green, and gold.

Alright, so this set is a bit more Scottish than Irish, but I’ll take any excuse to look at Disney nail art. There’s a Celtic design on the pinky, but the overall Brave vibe is pretty Celtic itself.
