Nail Art Studio: Somewhere Over the Rainbow

byNancy Kirk | February 28, 2018

1. Apply two coats of OPI I Believe in Manicures. Cure between each layer.

2. Use a small paintbrush to create cloud shapes with Young Nails Mission Control in Fizz. Cure.

3. Choose a variety of gold glitters and mix with a minimal amount of builder gel, adding more if necessary. Apply a line of the glitter mix across the nail and cure.

4. Add a line of Presto Bambina gold liner to either side of the gold glitter and cure.

5. Use Young Nails Mission Control gel paints to paint a rainbow, curing between each color to prevent bleeding. Apply Exclusive Nail Couture ShineE no-wipe top coat.

Her detailed, contrasting rendition of “Urban Expressions” by Michael Lang impressed the judges. Other beautiful entries ranged from the ever-popular Vermeer to Dali and Basquiat.
