Exquisitely Detailed Nails

2018-02-0120 Antique Ammonites


Keep your inspirational image close.

Today we have start to finish tutorial of building these restful beachy nails. I start by attaching nails to orange sticks with a dab if hot glue.

Next after a layer of clear base coat mix Starlit Sapphire glitter with clear gel polish and harden on the thumb and pinkie fingers. Wipe with alcohol and sand the glitter smooth for our beachy feel.

Paint the background of the center three fingers ultramarine blue. When dry paint on the basic Ammonite shape using buff titanium. Draw in the cell walls in with White. The fill in the cells with burnt sienna.

Tighten up your details and top coat.
