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


Nail Art Studio: The Stars and Stripes

Fleury Rose demos a patriotic design for summer. 

1. Prep the nails with a dry manicure for gel application and apply a base coat.

2. Apply two coats of a deep sparkly blue and cure. Apply a top coat and cleanse to remove sticky layer.

3. Using a very fine brush, paint white stars in different sizes on the nail. Cure to keep the lines crisp!

4. Next, outline the stars with a thin white line. Cure. Add thin red lines to the center of each star. Cure. Vary the angles of the lines to make it more interesting! Seal with top coat and cure.
