History of St. Patricks Day

The history of St. Patrick’s Day is actually quite interesting. The day is celebrated to commemorate the death of Saint Patrick, who was a missionary and bishop in Ireland during the 5th century.

Saint Patrick is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland and is also thought to have performed many miracles. He is the patron saint of Ireland and his feast day is celebrated on March 17th.

Interestingly, the color green wasn’t associated with St. Patrick’s Day until 1798. Blue was actually the original color. Nowadays, people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by wearing green clothing, accessories, and even nail designs.

1. Green and Gold

Consider getting creative by using a different green design for each nail. You can recreate this look, but switch it up by adding shamrocks, and other St. Patrick’s day themed designs.
