Nail Art Studio: Cornucopia

1. Mix clear, gold, and silver glitter with clear acrylic and apply to the nail.


2. Shape the cornucopia using beige acrylic. While still wet, use a quilting pen to create a basket weave on the cornucopia, and a fine-point tool to create texture on its rim. Add color detail to the rim with red-brown acrylic paint. Go over the cornucopia lightly with gold acrylic paint to add a light shimmer.


3. Using clear acrylic to secure, place a Fimo pumpkin and fruit in the cornucopia. Use purple acrylic to create grapes and berries. Finish with a clear top coat on the nail outside the cornucopia only.
