The first nail design I want to share with y’all is one that I did for my mom. I took pictures of her nails along the way to explain how I did them. Scroll down for the finished product!
So here is everything I used (except for the dotting tool). We did a variety of bright-colored polish.
This next picture shows her bare white nails I painted with Orly GelFX.
The pink around her finger nails is a new product I got about a week ago. It’s amazing! I highly recommend it. Its called Mess No More by Mini Mani Moo. I got it at Ulta for $13.50. It’s a latex barrier that goes around the nail that peels off for easy clean up.
This is one color combo I used for her nails. It takes a few coats to get the whole nail covered.
Here are all of her nails with all of the different color combinations. For the most part, the each nail have 2-3 colors. There are two nails that have all 5 colors.
After that, I peeled off the latex barrier and cleaned up the edges. I forgot to take a picture of the next step so I will describe it as best as possible. I used the OPI Gel Shine Top Coat and a dotting tool to make small dots on her nails. After she set the polish, I used non-acetone nail polish remover to take off the rest of the polish, leaving only gel dots. I then put a top coat over the nails. This is the finish product below.
