Nail Art Studio: Charming Locket

byNancy Kirk | January 23, 2017

1. Prep the nails for gel application. File the nails in desired shape. Use a romantic pink and creamy nude color. Apply a thin coat of the lighter color in the middle of the nail and the darker color on the sides. Blend the colors for a smooth ombre look and cure. Repeat and remove dispersion layer.

2. Using a very fine brush, paint fine lines and dots with white acrylic paint. Let dry.

3. Draw a locket with black gel paint and cure.

4. Apply small pieces of foil over the locket. Secure with matte top coat and cure.

5. Apply a clear gel on the locket, fill the space with pearls and rhinestones, and cure.
