1. Prep the nails and apply a gel base coat. Cure for 30 seconds in LED lamp or 2 minutes in UV lamp. Next apply Big Apple Red by OPI to the entire nail, cure, and repeat for full coverage.

2. Draw the gold nail art using Presto Nail Art brush #11 with Orly’s Luxe Lacquer. Apply gel top coat and cure. Use a lint-free wipe and nail cleanser to remove the inhibition layer.

3. Draw the roses with the same OPI red and a small dotting tool. Pour Young Nails clear acrylic powder over design and cure. Brush off excess acrylic powder.
