Step-by-step by Clara Hostetter, Nails by Clara & Lurleen B. Wallace Community College, Opp, Ala.
To get her signature style:
1. Apply sparkly off-white acrylic to the entire nail. Using purple acrylic, create a six-petal flower on a form. Add a purple rhinestone in the center. To create the two roses, apply a ball of the appropriate colored acrylic (red, then yellow) to a form, then roll it between your fingers in one direction. Apply flowers to the nail with clear acrylic.
2. Apply green acrylic leaves to the flowers. Create the bee, then attach it to the nail with clear acrylic. (Use yellow acrylic for the body, then add black stripes to the back and a black teardrop rhinestone for the tail. Use clear glitter acrylic for the wings. Add black antennas to the head.)
3. Apply glitter to the leaves. Apply UV gel top coat. Cure for two minutes.
