Making your first four leaf clover nail art design
Why not get the adorable luck-catcher design for your own nails? It’s not as hard to paint on as you may see in the designs. Sometimes all you need is a little practice to get it right and some creativity as well. You can even make the designs customized and more personalized to your liking.
Things to prepare:
- – Light green nail polish
- – Dark green and white acrylic paint
- – Clear coat
- – Base coat (white or any color that will not fight over the green hue)
- – Small brush
Begin with coating your nails with the base color. The base color can either be your light green color or maybe a white color if you prefer so. It would depend on how much you want your base color to look. The white adds more layers to your nail art and can give you a much more even tone of light green. However, using the light green as base coat on the nails can also work if you want the colors to be purely in the same hue. Make sure to paint two coats to be sure that the base doesn’t peel off quickly.
Then use the dark green acrylic paint to paint on small hearts on top of the base coat. Make sure that the small hearts fit enough to form a small circle shape. Paint on four hearts to form the circle and leave a space in the middle of the circle. Be sure that the hearts are side by side each other and resemble petals; they should not be overlapping each other.
When this is done, add the stem below to make it look more like a four leaf clover. Use the white acrylic to define the leaves by drawing lines on the silhouette or sides of the hearts. This can help accentuate the petal form of the hearts and makes it look more like a four leaf clover even from afar.
When everything is dry and the design is set don’t forget to add a clear top coat to protect your nail art design. The clear coat not only protects the layers below it but it also helps give shiny finish to your nails, making it look like its glimmering under the sun. You can also use two coats of the clear polish if you want a more even look.
St. Patrick’s Day inspired nail art
Four leaf clover nail art designs are also popular when St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner. The color green is instant win and it also gives you an excuse to exercise your fashion sense on your nails. It’s very easy to create this design and it adds a little extra glitter to the usual four leaf clover nail art design.
Things to prepare:
- Base coat (any color)
- Green glitter polish
- Gold glitter polish
- Clear Coat
Begin by painting the base coat on your nails. To be safe you can use a color that is nearest to the next layer that you will be painting on. You can also use black or white just make sure that the colors will be evenly placed on your nails. In other cases you can also use clear coat. This helps protect your nails from the other layers that will be painted on top.
Then carefully paint over the base coat with the green and gold glitter polish. You can choose to paint all but one nail in green and the leftover nail with gold or vice versa. This can help create an effect on your nails especially when you want the four leaf clover design to be singled out even from afar.
Make sure that the polish is dry before you apply the four leaf clover design on top. Look for the nails painted with gold and paint over it with the four leaf cover design. You can sue the same method above of drawing small hearts to form the petals or you can star with painting dots and drawing a small v-line extending from one side. Just make it a point that the petals are lining up with each other to form a circle. As you draw each petal also make sure that there is a good gap in between them as they should not look too close or too far from one another.
When you are done with this simply get the clear polish and paint over the design. Always make sure that the nail polish is dry before you paint over it to avoid destroying the design you have made.
And you are done!
