Nail Art

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


Design #4: Snakeskin

Fade the background with Tippy Cup Turquoise and Metallic Pearl.

1. Lay down Surprise glitter acrylic mix on opposite corners, creating a blank channel diagonally from corner to corner.

Abstract Flower - Step 1

2. Marbleize Banana Baby and Sissy Salmon in the blank channel. Immediately overlay the nail with Speed Clear to cap the design.

Abstract Flower - Step 2

3. Give the surface about 30-40 seconds to set before pulling the Into You Netting through the surface. By dipping the netting into the powder, you can prevent it from sticking to the acrylic.

4. Gently remove the netting and apply Rainbow Black to fill in the space.
