Nail Art

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


Nail Art Studio: Rad Plaid

Paint a preppy plaid nail for St. Patrick's Day.

1. Paint the nail with CND Sage Scarf Shellac and cure.

2. Use a fine striping brush and CND Pretty Poison to paint two lines of varying widths vertically, and one thick line horizontally. Cure.

3. Paint thin lines using CND Cream Puff, horizontally and vertically.

4. Add additional lines with gold glitter polish and cure.

5. Cover nail with top coat and set gold and pearl gems in a triangular shape. Cover stones with a second layer of top coat and cure to secure.
