Nail Art

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


Clay Rose French

Tina Alberino uses stamping, rhinestones, and clay to create this lovely design.

Tina Alberino uses stamping, rhinestones, and clay to create this lovely design.


Polish the base of the nail pink. Polish the free edge white, with one side dipping deeper than the other to create an asymmetrical French.


 Either handpaint, stamp (shown is a Bundle Monster stamp), or airbrush delicate floral scrollwork on the free edge.


Add rhinestones of varying colors and a clay rose. To create the rose, flatten tiny balls of clay and roll them between your thumb and forefinger. The first roll serves as the rose center. Then take a smaller ball of clay (roughly half the size of the center), flatten it, and create a petal. Repeat the process, sticking the petals to the center piece until the rose looks done. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes and let cool. File the rose from the bottom until it’s at the height you want it to be.
