St. Patrick's Day Manicure



Happy St. Patrick's Day! My nails are in full holiday spirit and I'm excited to share them with you. For this mani, you'll need a green, light green, white, and gold polishes. Use a decently sized dotting tool for the large clover and a smaller one to create the miniature clovers on the thumb along with the tiny dots. Use a nail art brush to fill in the gaps if there are any.

The clover is simple. Using a large dotting tool, make 3 big hearts. One for the top and two for the sides. The points should all mesh together to form the clover leaf. Use a small dotting tool or thin brush to create the stem!

Use a small dotting tool for the tiny clovers on the thumb. If you don't have one, a toothpick will work just fine! For these, dip your toothpick into white polish. Dot 3 tiny dots to make an upside down Mickey Mouse head. Now make one small stroke with your toothpick to create the stem. If you'd like, you can dip your dotting tool into the darker green polish to add dots to your clover pattern.
