Orly La La Land Poodle

by NLS Staff | April 26, 2017

Orly ambassador Elsbeth Schuetz created this style-conscious Los Angeles poodle nail design using Orly’s La La Land Collection.

1. Prep the natural nail and apply base coat. Apply two coats of GelFX Forget Me Not and cure.

2. With a detailer brush, paint three large drops of GelFX Point Blanche and cure.

3. Mix GelFX Point Blanche with cornstarch to form a thicker paste. With the tip of the detailer brush, apply fur-like texture and cure. Use a larger ball of cornstarch and gel mix to form the nose, then cure.

4. Use the tip of the brush or an orangewood stick to apply bows and color using GelFX As Seen On TV and Cool in California. Cure. Use GelFx Liquid Vinyl to color eyes and nose. Dab on Anything Goes wherever your dog needs sparkle. Cure and finish with a super thin layer of top coat.
