Huntsman-Inspired Nail Art Step-by-Step
  • July 28, 2016

Give your clients a nail art look that soars beyond the ordinary manicure.

Inspired by The Huntsman: Winter's War, NAILS Next Top Nail Artist season 1 champion Ryoko Garcia created this whimsical wing nail art. Garcia used Artistic Nail Design’s Huntsman Spring 2016 Collection. To recreate this look, find the products at a SalonCentric location near you.

1. Prep the nails for gel-polish application. Apply Woman In The Mirror and cure for 30 seconds in an LED lamp. Repeat.

2. Start drawing wings. Use Bride and an Artistic oval brush. Stroke white wings from outside to inside. Flash cure for five seconds in an LED lamp.

3. Draw inside of the wings to give them depth, using It’s Owl About Power and an Artistic oval brush. Stroke from inside to outside, opposite way from step 2. Flash cure for five seconds. Add more depth using a tiny amount of Swag and an Artistic oval brush. Stroke from inside to outside. Flash cure for five seconds.

4. Add another layer of white wings by using Bride and an Artistic oval brush.
Repeat the steps until you have several rows of feathers. Cure for 30 seconds in an LED lamp. 

5. Add Gorgeous on the wings. Cure for 30 seconds in an LED lamp. Apply Glossing Gel and cure for 30 seconds in an LED lamp. Use a lint-free wipe and Nail Surface Cleanser to remove the inhibition layer.
