Happy St Patrick's Day from KoKo and Claire. KoKo and Claire doesn't have to be used strictly to paint the nails.  Using your imagination and other tools, you can accomplish cute nail art by hand with any of our gel polish colors. We wanted to show a look today that is simple yet adorable and all done with all KoKo and Claire gel polishes. We will break it down step by step to show you how simple it can be for any level of ability to accomplish nail art.

Nail #1.....Step 1

After prepping the nails, apply KoKo and Claire Base Coat and cure. Then apply full coverage of KoKo and Claire gel polish 061 Juke Box Money & cure.

Nail #2.....Step 2

Apply a second coat of 061 Juke Box Money and, before curing, use a dotting tool and place 4 dots of KoKo and Claire 102 Enlighten Mint into the uncured gel. This will allow it to spread out a little bit without running into each other. Then with a detailing brush like CjS Detailer brush as pictured here, move on to the next step.

Nail #1.....Step 3

From the top of each dot, drag the tip of the Detailer Brush through
to the center of the dots. This will create the look of leaves on a four
leaf clover. Drag a little bit down from the center to create a stem, cure
and apply a coat of KoKo and Claire Shine & cure one final time.
Create a smaller four leaf clover on the lower part of the nail using 
the same steps.

Nail #2........Step 1

For the rainbow nail, start by covering the nail with one coat
of KoKo and Claire 077 Dirty Martini and cure. Apply another
coat if needed and cure.

Nail #2......Step 2

Using the CjS Detailer Brush, paint the first color of the rainbow (red). With the wide variety of KoKo and Claire gel polishes we have, it will be easy to color match the colors of the rainbow. The first line was painted with gel polish color 025 That's a Hard Go & cure.

Nail #2......Step 3

The next color of the rainbow (orange) is applied using

Next line (yellow) was painted using KoKo and Claire 007 Citrus Sun
& cure.

Nail #2.......Step 5

Next color of the rainbow (green) we used KoKo and Claire 080 7-Up and cure.

Nail #2......Step 6

Next color of the rainbow (blue) is KoKo and Claire gel polish color 030 Crisp Spring Morning and cure.

Nail #2......Step 7

The next color of the rainbow (purple) was painted using KoKo and Claire 043 Plush Velvet and cure.

Nail #2......Step 8

Last color of the rainbow (violet) to paint, we used 071 Cala Lily and cure. Apply a coat of KoKo and Claire Shine top coat and cure.
