Learn how to do this simple Retro Rose design from Young Nails (as featured in CosmoProf's Vintage Vibe, Modern Style promotion).
1. Prep the nail as usual. Apply Young Nails Protein Bond on the entire nail. Apply a second coat of Protein Bond on the entire nail. Apply a thin layer of Speed Clear acrylic to the natural nail. Apply a thin layer of Pop Bright Turquoise to the entire nail.
2. Cap the nail in Speed Clear acrylic to get your strength and structure. File and shape the nail. Using White Kaleidoscope Gel Paint, apply small white dots on the nail using a dotting tool and cure in a UV light for one minute.
3. Mix Kaleidoscope Red and White Gel Paint together to get a Pink Gel Paint and apply small pink dots on the nail using a dotting tool. Cure in a UV light for one minute. Apply Finish Gel Sealer to the entire nail and cure in UV light for two minutes.
4. Lightly buff the area where you will be placing your 3-D fl ower. Using Red acrylic and the Imagination Art Brush create a 3-D fl ower on the nail.
