1. Lay a thin layer of black acrylic and file until smooth. Place a small bead of white acrylic powder on the nail and drag the sides out with a slight curve. Then, using the tip of your brush, press outwards, creating a thick outer edge.


2. Continue this, alternating sides, until you reach the center. Finish with a small bead in the middle and stab a hole in the center.


3. Cover the entire nail with a clear acrylic and a red hue added to the liquid.


4. With an electric file and carbide, start smoothing out the nail and the thick spots will come through. Apply top coat.
