Jennifer McCormick uses INM Gelavish to create a gummy bear design.
On an INM Timeless Clear Tip, apply Prep It, Prime It, and Dual It. Cure. Apply your first coat of Gelavish (shown here in Innocence) and cure. Apply a second coat of your color and cure.
Choose your second color of Gelavish (shown here in Joyful) in a spiral pattern. Cure.
Place a bead of acrylic onto the nail. To create your gummy bear, form it into a rectangle. Add small beads for the ears, nose, hands, and feet.
When the gummy bear is dry, use a very small amount of Gelavish and wash the color over the bear, leaving a glossy effect behind. Cure. Apply Glaze gel top coat to seal. After applying Clear Glaze, there is no tacky layer to wipe after curing.
