Nail Art Studio: Yin and Yang

Step-by-step by Roe Van Epps, Sacramento, Calif.

1. Apply a thin layer of Backscratchers Aqua clear gel to the entire nail. Cure. Apply Backscratchers Designer Gel in white to the yang side of the nail. Apply Designer Gel in black to the yin side. Cure.

2. Apply a dot of black gel onto the white side. Apply a dot of white gel onto the black side. Cure.

3. Apply a thin layer of Backscratchers ICE light-cured top coat over the entire nail. Using your fingertip, apply Backscratchers Silver Micro Beads along the black and white divide. (Static will keep the bead stuck to your finger as you place it in a rolling motion.) Use tweezers to move the bead on the wet nail surface if needed. Cure.
