Nail Art Studio: Dad’s Favorite Film

Rosa Vargas demonstrates a nail art idea for Father's Day. 

1. Paint the nail with two coats of green nail polish.

2. Use a liner brush and white nail polish to paint the base of a film strip. Once dry, use a detail brush and black nail polish to outline the film strip. Use a dotting tool and white nail polish to add more details.

3. Use a liner brush and black nail polish to paint “DAD.” Once dry, seal the look with top coat.
