Nail Art Tutorial: Beginner Sculpted Bows
Simple bows are ideal embellishments for salon clients! Sam Biddle shows how to make these dainty bows yourself using acrylic.
1. Place a small bead of black acrylic on the form and pull it into a point with the tip of your brush. Press and flatten the bow edges.
2. Place another bead in the center of the bow, and drag some of the acrylic to make the ribbon.
3. Use polish to paint small dots over the bow.
4. Attach the bow to the surface of the nail with a gel topcoat (or resin) before you cure.
Tip: Pre-make these embellishments in different sizes and have them ready to enhance your in-salon designs.
