Nail Art Tutorial: Color-Changing Snakeskin
You will need:
- a dotting tool
- top coat
- Bluesky yellow CS012 (Colour Me pretty – Butter Me Up)
- Blue/green thermal (heat-changing) polish TC06 (Colour Me Pretty – 50 Shades of Green)
- Gel top coat
Step 1: Start with prepped nail (can be done on natural or enhanced nails).
Step 2: Cure 2 coats of a pale colored gel of your choice; I chose yellow.
Step 3: One coat of your darker color (I chose blue color changing). Do not cure.
Step 4: With your dotting tool, add dots of top coat all over the uncured layer. Make sure they are quite close to each other. Use different size dots if you like for effect.
Step 5: Once you have covered the entire nail, cure.
Step 6: With alcohol, wipe the inhibition layer, just to remove the excess dark gel.
Step 7: Add top coat and cure. Done! Here’s what a long nail will look like under heat.
