NTNA 2014 Pre-Challenge #1: 3-D Music (Alecia)

June 1, 2014  | Video

Alecia Mounixay (Wilmington, NC) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.

"I used white hard gel for the base of the nail and various neon gel-polishes that faded in the background, lightly dusted with glitter and capped twice with clear gel-polish top coat to give it more depth. I handpainted the word music with little notes. I used white acrylic powder to make the music notes and painted them with gel-polish before applying them to the music lines that surrounded the nail with wire base. This was also capped with black acrylic and gel. The face was made with white gel-polish to give it life and painted with acrylic paint for fine detailed lines."
