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

Prep nails and apply Protein Bond. Tear a piece of plumber’s tape from the roll and crinkle. Remove backing and place it on a Young Nails form. Then fit the form to the finger.


Using a reverse application, apply Young Nails Cover Pink Acrylic down for the nail bed.


Using Imagination Art Drops in red, pick up a pearl of clear acrylic and sculpt a free edge on the form with the tape. Squeeze with Young Nails Magic Wand for a nice C-curve.


Using a clean brush, dip the brush into clean monomer and pick up a medium pearl of clear acrylic. Apply it to the stress area and cover the nail. Allow it to dry and remove the forms. Using a sharp point of the Magic Wand will help pry the acrylic from the plumber’s tape. The nail will be uneven in texture under the free edge.


File the nail into shape. Apply Finish Gel and cure. Apply Rose Oil to the cuticles.
