Tutorial and Week 11 - St. Patrick's Day

Simple Clover Nail Art Tutorial!
Again, no nail art brushes or dotting tools needed! Using the same techniques as last time, in the Simple Heart Nail Art Tutorial, you can make a festive St. Patrick's day manicure.  Step-by-step after the jump:

Wet N' Wild - French White Creme, One coat
Orly - Lucky Duck, Clovers

  • I made thinner swipes than in the heart tutorial, so that there would be more room for all the leaves.
  • Try to leave more space between your two clusters, otherwise it just looks kind of like an asterisk.
  • All I did was wipe the excess polish off one side of my brush, touch the brush along the straight edge of my nail (wait a moment so the edge rounds out slightly), and swipe straight out.
  • Starting a bit lower and to the side, you repeat the process; this time, curve your swipe so that the end overlaps with the end of the first swipe.
  • Don't worry if your lines were too rigid and it just looks like a "V."
  • I'm sure you've seen it, but remember to check Jane at Nailside's Freehand Cloud tutorial for more tips, because the concept is essentially the same. 

I love things like this, with a low ratio of time:results.  I hope this helps somebody out!
