Guest Post: Quatrefoil Nail Art Tutorial by Pao of Nail Polish Pursuit

Hi lovelies!

Such a great post ahead today, from the gorgeous Pao of Nail Polish Pursuit. I've only gotten to know Pao fairly recently and she's truly one of the most positive people I've met in the nail world. She's going to show you how to do some stunning quatrefoil nail art and I'm already convinced I need to invest on some of these vinyls. Let's take a look!

Hi Procrastinating Polishr fans! I'm delighted to be guest posting for my friend Jae today while she's enjoying her much needed vacation.

My name is Pao and I run a little blog called Nail Polish Pursuit. I love doing swatches of new and past collections and a bit of nail art here and there. Today I'm sharing a design I made especially for today's post that is simple and fun. I have a huge obsession with all things Quatrefoil/Moroccan print so I couldn't help but pick this design for my guest post. Let's take a look at how I created this mani.




You will need the following:

Glittery polish (I used Fairy Cake by butter LONDON)
Black polish (I used Who Are You Calling Bossy?!? by OPI)
Quatrefoil stencils (Mine are from Vinyl Boutique)
Fast drying top coat (I used Seche Vite)
Black decorative nail studs (I got mine from eBay)
Peel off base coat (this is optional but it helps take the glitter polish off quicker)


FIRST STEP:

Apply your peel off base coat if you decide to use one. If not, apply a good base coat.

SECOND STEP:

Apply 2-3 coats of your glitter polish depending on opacity preference. I did 3 coats of Fairy Cake here.


THIRD STEP:

Apply a fast drying top coat and give it at least 15 minutes to completely dry.

FOURTH STEP:

Apply the Quatrefoil stencils to your pointer and ring fingers.


FIFTH STEP:

Add a coat of your black polish and while the polish is still dry, remove the stencils.



SIXTH STEP:

Give your polish a few minutes to dry and then add a glossy top coat. Add black decorative studs to your middle and pinky fingers using a dab of clear polish for glue. You're done :)


I love the way this design turned out! Here's a macro shot of the moroccan beauty!



I hope you enjoyed these easy glittery Quatrefoil/Moroccan nails! A huge THANK YOU to Jae for giving me the opportunity to be part of her awesome blog!



Thank you Pao for creating such a fantastic tutorial for me! I've never tried quatrefoil nails before and I love this glittery version so much! It's been an absolute pleasure to have you here x
