Pot O' Gold Nail Tutorial

This design is truly stunning with a decorative rainbow and pot o' gold!

Step 1- Paint your nails gold. Let dry.

Step 2- Use a rainbow of different polish colors with a striper brush to create cascading lines of colors in a fan shape about halfway down each nail. Let dry.

Step 3- Use black polish to create a circle at the base of each nail. Paint a horizontal line across the top of the circle to create a pot. Let dry.

Step 4- Use a green polish to create a couple four leaf clovers off to the side of your pot on each nail. Use your striper brush with white polish to create a curved line on the pot. Let dry.

Step 5- Apply gold gems or gold sparkles for the gold in your pot. Apply top coat and let dry completely.
