Nadja Freund demonstrates how to do Painterly Nails


1. Apply green and silver gel-polishes on the tip of the nail, disregarding the smile line, and cure.


2. Apply large dots of red, orange, yellow, and brown gel-polish, flash curing after every  five to 10 dots to prevent running. Apply a matte top-gel.


3. Using black water-based  acrylic paint, create circles around the dots.  Fill the gaps in between, and paint black and white wavy circles in some of the dots.
