Behind the Scenes: Sand On Your Toes Nail Art

This month’s cover tech Elsbeth Schuetz discovered a gorgeous way to use sand in her nail art, creating an easy and unique embossed design.

If there is any feeling that says summer, it’s the exfoliating joy of sand between your toes. This month’s cover tech Elsbeth Schuetz discovered a gorgeous way to use sand in her nail art, creating an easy and unique embossed design. Using extra-fine sand allows the color of the gel pattern to show through for a beach-ready hang ten.

Schuetz always jokes about her longtime career doing nails. “I was Rembrandt’s assistant,” she says with a laugh. As an educator for Orly International, Schuetz travels extensively teaching classes and workshops. She also has a full schedule as a celebrity manicurist. Her most recent job? On the set of “Wonder Woman” (due out in 2017), keeping actress Gal Gadot’s nails wonderful.

Get this month’s cover look:

1. Apply two coats of blue gel (using Orly’s GelFX).

2. Apply a matte top gel, cure, and wipe off sticky residue.

3. Using a thin brush, paint net-like lines using the same color or a color that’s one shade darker.

4. Immediately sprinkle with fine sand.

5. Cure double time.

6. Use a nail scrub brush to remove excess sand.
