Anna Vasquez uses gels and clay canes to create this seasonal nail art design.
Apply silver shimmer gel to the free edge, working it up to the middle of the nail. Add blue shimmer gel to the base of the nail near the eponychium down toward the middle of the tip. Use a clean brush to blend the two colors together. Cure. (Optional: Add a second coat to intensify the color.)
Use green gel to add grass and stems. Cure. Use striping paint to add dark and light green accents and to add leaves.
Start adding clay cane flowers, a dragonfly, and a butterfly.
Finish adding clay cane flowers. Apply gel top coat. Cure.
