Nail Art Studio: Stormy Night

by NAILS Staff | September 25, 2018

1. Apply two coats of OPI Black Onyx gel-polish, curing between coats.

2. Using OPI Alpine Snow and a makeup sponge, sponge a white fog onto the nail and cure. The fog starts in the middle of the nail and extends toward the tip.

3. Draw a half moon in the upper right corner of the nail and a bolt of lightning on the bottom half of the nail. Apply OPI No-Cleanse Top Coat and cure.

4. For an added 3-D effect, apply CND’s Pure White Brisa Sculpting Gel over the moon and lightning bolt to the desired thickness. Cure and wipe the nail with CND Scrub Fresh Nail Surface Sanitizer.
