   Use ruby red acrylic to create the background of the nail. Cap the ruby with clear acrylic. Shape the nail.
   Using dots from two nail forms, position the forms so the dragon’s body will curve off and then back onto the nail. Use green acrylic powder to create the shape of the dragon’s body. (The curves of the dots help create the curved shape of the body.)
   Using two shades of green acrylic, create scales on the dragon’s body. Using gold acrylic, build the dragon’s wings on a nail form. Outline in black. While the wings are still in the molding stage, curve the nail form for dimension. When dry, apply to the body.
   Using green acrylic, design the dragon’s head on a nail form. Add a white eye with a black pupil. Define the mouth in black. Apply gold acrylic in between the spikes on the dragon’s head. Attach the head to the end of the body. Brush the body with green glitter, and apply rhinestones randomly. Seal with top coat.
