Nails by Laurie Ivins, Profiles Hair Design, Sandpoint, Idaho
1. Apply clear gel diagonally across the top of a tip. Dip the nail in red glitter. Cure for two minutes. Wipe off the tacky layer with alcohol. Below the red glitter diagonal line, apply a clear gel diagonally on the tip. Sprinkle silver glitter onto the clear. Cure for two minutes. Wipe off the tacky layer with alcohol.
2. Starting at the opposite corner of the tip, apply clear gel diagonally across, with the inside edge of the line touching the edge of the silver glitter. Sprinkle gold glitter onto the clear. Cure for two minutes. Wipe off the tacky layer with alcohol.
3. Place a drop of glue in the space between the silver and gold glitter lines, then apply a holiday decal. Apply a clear coat of builder gel over the entire nail. (The builder gel should encase the decal well enough that it won’t buff out later.) Cure. Cleanse the tacky layer. Buff smooth. Apply a non-tacky gel top coat. Cure.
