1. Create the tip using sparkly white acrylic.


2. Start the rainbow fade by using purple sparkly acrylic next to the white smile line of the tip.  


3. Continue the fade by layering each color of sparkly acrylic slightly over the next as you move toward the back of the nail. Paint a thin layer of sheer gold glitter polish over the white tip.


4. Paint a four leaf clover in the corner of the nail using a dotting tool and green acrylic paint. Add gold rhinestones to the smile line. Finish with a super shiny gel top coat, and cure under a UV light.
