Nail Art Studio: Dream Catcher

1. Create an ombre on the nail with three colors of your choice.


2. Using a fine brush and black polish, draw a half circle on the base of the nail.


3. Draw three black vertical lines extending from the half circle out toward the tip. The middle line should be a bit longer than the other two. Create a web of black lines to fill in the half circle.


4. Using a dotting tool, place beads in different colors in random order along the three lines. Finish with a clear top coat.
