Nail Art

Dedicated to the infinite joys of nail art and design: handpaint, airbrush, colored acrylics and gels.



With these step by steps you can create pretty blue and white nail art. 

3D FISH-EASE by Ringwood-Wood

1. Using a medium ball of semi-dry white acrylic, place it on the form and start to drag it and form it in the shape of a comma (it should resemble a basic fish shape). Turn around the form and repeat. Then, make sure the two “fish” are touching, creating one piece of acrylic. When dry, pop them off and file any rough edges.
2. Place a small amount of clear acrylic on the back of the fish and place on the nail. Fill in any lifted areas with the clear acrylic. Paint the background with three hues of blue, mix and overlap them. Paint the fish two different blues. Finally, place clear glitter polish on the “water” and apply top coat.


1. Apply several different shades of blue as your background, including a touch of blue glitter.
2. Apply silver dots in the shape of the Pisces sign, and write out the sign’s lucky numbers 8 and 5 on opposite corners of the nail in red.
3. Create two fish symbols using a mix of clear acrylic with crushed shells. Create the tails using confetti circles having a triangle cut out. Coat with clear powder.
