1. Apply base coat and cure. Follow with two coats of white gel-polish, curing after each layer.

2. Mix one drop of no-wipe top coat with one drop of light gray gel-polish. Using a fine detail brush, apply petals and small flowers randomly, allowing for imperfections. Cure.

3. Outline the petals and flowers using the fine detail brush with a white gel paint like Young Nails Mission Control Fizz, then cure.

4. Add detail to the flowers by applying a drop of Orly Builder in a Bottle at the center of the petals, followed by caviar or embellishments of your choice. Cure.
