Hello, beautiful creatures! Today I’m sharing 15 420 nail ideas and inspiration. The magical holiday of 420 is coming up soon, so I thought I’d create some cannabis nail art to share with you, as well as round up some other gorgeous manicures for ideas, nail art, and inspiration. I love doing my own nails at home, but I know not everyone likes to do their own nails or has the time, so I also included press on nails that you can purchase if you want to wear the trend!

My 420 Nail Inspiration Tutorial
- Painted Desert Medium Stiletto Tips
- Madam Glam Perfect Black gel polish
- Painted Desert Cactus Gelly Plus
- iGel Luminous Lime gel polish
- Painted Desert Stainless Steel Top Coat
- Daily Charme Key Lime Pie glitter
- iGel No-Wipe Top Coat
- holographic cannabis leaf glitter
- Mooncat The Dark Side regular polish
- Madam Glam It’s Not X-Mas Yet! gel polish
- Mooncat Speed Demon Top Coat
- Daily Charme Chrome gel polish
- Daily Charme Unichrome powder
I painted a coat of Madam Glam Perfect Black on my thumb and cured it, then added Painted Desert Stainless Steel Top Coat and cured. Next I used iGel Luminous Lime gel to create a french tip, then sprinkled Daily Charme Key Lime Pie glitter on top of Luminous Lime gel and cured. I used a dedicated bottle of iGel No-Wipe top coat to add a layer on top of the Key Lime Pie glitter and sprinkled the glitter again and cured.
I placed a holographic cannabis leaf onto the nail and put Cactus Gelly Plus on top to make it smooth to the nail and cured. Then I sealed the black area with Stainless Steel Top Coat and cured a final time.
Madam Glam Perfect Black is my favorite single coat black gel nail polish. Daily Charme Key Lime Pie glitter is so gorgeous and vibrant it seemed like the perfect accent for this look. And you can never go wrong with holographic glitter in any shape, even a cannabis leaf!
420 Index and Ring
These fingers are very straight forward. I painted a coat of Madam Glam Perfect Black on my index and ring fingers and cured it, then added Painted Desert Stainless Steel Top Coat and cured. I layered two thin coats of Mooncat The Dark Side on top and sealed them in with Mooncat Speed Demon Top Coat.
Mooncat The Dark Side is one of the most unique black nail polishes in my collection. It’s a metallic black with silver foil flakies and blue holographic glitter. The Dark Side is absolutely stunning!
I used iGel Luminous Lime gel as a base all over and then sprinkled Daily Charme Key Lime Pie glitter on top and cured. A dedicated bottle of iGel No-Wipe top coat (which I’ve ‘contaminated with glitter and dip powder) was used to add a gel layer on top of the Key Lime Pie glitter and I sprinkled the glitter again and cured.
I love sugaring nails with glitter! Key Lime Pie glitter is so beautiful and eye catching.
The middle finger was my problem child. I tried 3 different looks before I settled on one. Madam Glam It’s Not X-Mas Yet!, a favorite of mine, was applied in two thin coats and I cured each coat. Then I applied a layer of Daily Charme Chrome gel and cured. A makeup sponge is the perfect tool to use to rub Daily Charme Unichrome powder on. I repeated the Chrome gel and Unichrome powder again, then sealed it all in with the Painted Desert Stainless Steel Top Coat.
On my left hand I placed a holographic cannabis leaf onto the middle nail and put Cactus Gelly Plus on top to make it smooth to the nail and cured.
I hope you enjoy these 15 420 Nail Ideas and Inspiration, as well as my step-by-step tutorial on how I created my nails! Celebrating 420 can be bold and in your face, or subtle, you decide!
