1. Start by using one layer of a buff color to even out the nail. Freehand the line image with black gel-polish. Cover the nail with the design. Cure, and wipe off tacky layer. 

2. Sponge alcohol inks into the image like you're coloring a picture. 

3. When finished sponging on the color, you'll want to take a small piece of sponge and wet it with alcohol. Then lightly touch all the spots of color and watch it turn into a beautiful watercolor image.

4. Apply two coats of gel-polish top coat and cure.
