Apply Gelish Foundation  and cure for 5 seconds in the Gelish 18G LED Lamp. Apply two coats of color. The pink shade featured here is Gelish Go Girl from the Spring 2012 Candy Land Collection. Cure for 30 seconds in between each application.


Using a dotting tool, create four circles, each a different size in any colors that you choose. Cure for 30 seconds. (Featured here is Orange Cream Dream, Sugar & Spice, Sheek White, and You’re Such a Sourpuss.)


Using a thin design brush, delicately draw the swirls inside the circles of the “lollipops” with different colors. Cure for 30 seconds. Using another clean design brush, draw the stems of the lollipop with Gelish Sheek White.


Using a thin design brush, create swirls along the side of the lollipops. Cure for 30 seconds. (Featured here is Gelish Emerald Dust.) Apply top coat and cure for 30 seconds.
