Using Nubar Soft Cover Peach and Nubar pink forms, lengthen and create the nail bed.


In a clean dappen dish, mix Nubar Infinity Brown acrylic powder and crystalline powder in a three-part brown to one-part crystalline ratio.


Sculpt the free edge with this mixture mixture in a stiletto shape at desired length.


File and shape the nails. Apply Nubar UV Top Coat. Using Infinity traditional hard gel in Builder White, use the drizzle method to drizzle on the “white chocolate” layer of the truffle design. Cure in UV light. (You could use pink gel for a pink chocolate effect.)
