Plaid Perfection: Holiday Nail Art Using Light Elegance ButterCream
Get full one-coat coverage with Light Elegance ButterCream UV/LED Color Gels. Apply the gel straight from the pot for a thick consistency perfect for detailed or raised nail art, or thin the consistency by agitating the gel for quick overlays.
Step 1: Prep the nail and apply gel base coat, then cure. Next, mix the gel and apply two thin coats of Real Red, curing after each.
Step 2: Using a spatula, mix clear gel with a small amount of Black Tie. Then, use a striping brush to paint two vertical and two horizontal lines. Cure.
Step 3: Paint squares at the points where the lines intersect with Black Tie. Cure.
Step 4: Paint two intersecting lines with Gold Metallic. Then, paint small tally marks across the free edge and base of the nail. Cure.
Step 5: Paint a thin vertical line with Just White on the right side of the nail. Cure. To finish, apply gel top coat and cure.
