Nail Art

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


Nail Art Studio: Fairy Snow Globe

Michelle Won of Nail Swag demonstrates how to create this magical design.

1. Prep nails for gel-polish. Apply base coat and cure. Apply base color and cure. Repeat for full coverage.
2. Use a gel brush or a sponge and a second color to create a light and subtle ombre effect. Cure.
3. Coat the nail with iridescent pigment powder over the tacky layer. Rub until smooth. Seal the nail with top coat and cure.
4. Use Kokoist Gem Gel to create a snow globe on the center of the nail. Cure.
5 Apply a clear gel to the entire nail and apply small embellishments around the oval gem gel. Cure. Apply a small amount of clear gel over the embellishments to secure them in place and cure. Coat the entire nail with top coat and cure.
