“LCK” Design: For each letter, begin by creating the basic shape, then add in the “serif” look (the short lines at the edge of the letters).

Horseshoe Design: Begin by creating a large “U” shape. Try to keep the two ends of the “U” narrower and the base of the “U” thicker.

Then, gently flick out the edges to create the horseshoe look.

Once that has time to dry, use your dotting tool and use a white polish to add finishing touches.IMG_9560IMG_9569IMG_9572IMG_9577IMG_9585

4 Leaf Clover: To create the clover, make a mini “V” shape. Create 3 more of the mini “V” designs.

Optional: add the stem of leave with a cute little clover.
