Denise Heavner (@denisejohn65) of Jefferson, Ohio, shows how to make this mixed-media nail perfect for any Paris-bound traveler.

1. Prepare the nail as you would for gel-polish. Paint one coat of white gel-polish, cure, and clean.

2. Cut pieces of Washi tape and stick to the nail leaving a slight margin.

3. Cap thinly with gel and cure. Paint lines going up and across the nail with white gel-polish. Cure. Cap it again.

4. Clean and buff the nail.

5. Stamp the image and apply top coat. Cure and clean.
