Nail Art

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


Nail Art Studio: American Gold

Mimi Wilson uses a sponging technique to create a marbled manicure. 

1. Polish nails white and allow to dry.

2. Using a sponge, carefully dab red polish on various parts of the nails.

3. Using the same technique and the clean side of a sponge, dab blue polish over the white polish. Add more white, red, or blue as desired.

4. While the polish is tacky, apply gold leaf, and seal the look with top coat.
