Cannabis Themed Nail Art Ideas For A Modern Weed Manicure

Classic sheets

Take any shade of polish, a sharp nail art toolor – if you have a steady hand – even a bent paperclip (ideally not the same one you used to empty your last bowl), and lots of patience, and any amateur artist can pull off a seven-pointed leaf shape.

A big leaf on your nail isn’t the only way to play with a marijuana design, though. If you have a narrower tip tool on hand or opt for nail stickers, think of mini seven-pointed leaf as an ingredient for a pattern – create your own polka dot pot or checkered texture; use them to create a fuzzy stony heart for Galentine’s Day. Make them yours!

weed charms

For those who simply don’t have time for this kind of detail work, there is reusable nail charms that you can affix to your nail with a copious glob of your favorite top coat.

shades of green

Not everyone is ready to wear their love for cannabis so clearly on their sleeve, and there’s nothing wrong with wanting a weed-friendly wink on your nails. The solution? To show creativity! Be conceptual! Take anything and everything green vegetables in your kit for a more subtle watercolor-style ombre ode to weed.

Smoke signals

The leaves and the green speak only part of the cannabis experience. Once the good times kicked in, one thing comes to mind: smoke. Swirls and puffs of fragrant, unmistakable cannabis smoke. It’s a pleasure point of inspiration for those looking for more neutral color palettes on their boards.


Why not start the conversation with your fingernails? Cannabis cultivation offers an array of numerical references: 420 for all things weed; 710 for dabbers and vapers – and thanks to censorship on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok, new code words like “w33d” and “ouid” have emerged so people can talk about the plant without being flagged. More of a weekend manicure for the most part, but one that’s sure to reveal some weed-friendly friends quickly.
