Beware of sharks while repping these surfboard-inspired nails!

1. Apply a thin layer of white gel-polish and cure. Apply pink gel-polish to upper half of a cosmetic wedge, and orange gel-polish to the bottom half. Lightly sponge the colors into the nail to create an ombre effect. Cure.
2. Paint a thick line with foam green gel down the middle of the nail with a polish brush. Cure.
3. Outline the green stripe using white gel and a thin liner brush. Cure and apply Presto top gel.
4. Apply a small dab of resin to the tip of the nail and apply pink studs. Finish by spraying the nail with “Hurry Up!” nail glue drying spray.
