Dedicated to the infinite joys of nail art and design: handpaint, airbrush, colored acrylics and gels.

 

Swirl Girl

Step-by-step by Jennifer Mather, Polished Nail Design Group Inc., Burlington, Ontario, Canada

1. Apply a clear tip if necessary. Apply CND Brisa Bond to the natural nail; air dry. Apply a thin layer of Brisa Clear Sculpting Gel. Cure for two minutes. Mix Brisa Paint in Soft White and a small amount of Brisa Bold Red Opaque Gel to get a pink. (Make enough for two thin coats.) Apply a thin layer to overlay and cure for two minutes.  

2. Apply a second layer of pink (don’t cure yet). Lay on strings and/or dots of Brisa Paint in Soft White and Brisa Bold Red Opaque Gel.  

3. Using the small end of a curette or a toothpick, swirl the uncured gel together. Cure for two minutes. Apply a thin layer of Brisa Gloss. Cure for two minutes.
