Nail Art Tutorial: Etching

Step 1: Set up your station by pouring small amounts of pigment into an artist palette (you can find these at a craft store).

Step 2: Prep nails. Apply the base gel and cure according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Then apply a thin coat of soft white soak-off gel and cure.

Step 3: Using a dry brush, press yellow pigment and pearlescent pigment into the brush, then dust onto the nail around the cuticle area.
