The A.S.P. Aspire acrylics give excellent coverage and adhesion, and the Cina Nail Art kits have packets of eye-catching nail art embellishments that can be combined. For this design, a white acrylic nail plate forms a spotless bedrock for the gold rhinestones and flower designs.
1. Prep and shape the natural nails. Apply an overlay to all 10 nails using A.S.P. White Acrylic Powder and A.S.P. Bonding Liquid. Buff the nails to a smooth high-shine finish with Miracle Buff and Shine.
2. Apply a coat of Cina Topcoat.
3. While the Topcoat is still wet apply Cina Champagne Toast Dazzle pieces in Gold and White. (Topcoat will act as an adhesive.) This is meant to be a 3-D look, but to help make the nail art stay on the nails even longer, you can bend the pieces so they are curved with the nails and add layers of top coat to keep them in place.
