1. Prep nails for gel-polish application. Apply one thin coat of a sheer white gel-polish and cure.

2. Apply one thin coat of clear gel-polish. Do not cure. Apply three vertical strokes using three gel-polish shades including rose gold, red, and light pink. The middle stroke should be the thickest. Do not cure.

3. Use a flat gel brush and tap the colors together to blend. Use a liner brush to drag the color from one corner toward the center to create a swirl design. Cure when you’ve reached desired effect.

4. Apply studs to frame the nail using no-wipe clear gel and use a liner brush to secure the embellishments from all angles. Cure.
