The luxe looks of the disco era take center stage on nails this season. Here, Los Angeles-based nail artist Elsy Pac, shares her disco-themed designs. “I was inspired by the shiny fabrics and textures that were popular during the’70s, including sequin dresses and disco balls.”
Step 1. Apply gel base coat, then two coats of silver holographic gel polish.
Step 2. Apply a line of clear gel down the center of the nail. Then, place large silver studs in the clear gel. Repeat until the entire nail is covered with studs.
Step 3. Apply a thin layer of clear gel over the edges of the studs. To finish, apply gel top coat.
Step 1. Prep the nail with gel base coat. Then, apply dots of shimmering pink, silver and gold gel polish to the nail. Do not cure.
Step 2. Apply a thin layer of clear gel, then use a gel brush to blend the gel polish shades together. To finish, apply gel top coat.
Step 1. Apply gel base coat. Next, use a striping brush to paint four diagonal lines with silver glitter gel polish.
Step 2. Apply clear gel to one of the diagonal sections. Do not cure. Use tweezers to place bronze sequins in the clear gel.
Step 3. Repeat Step 2 using gold, silver and bronze sequins until the entire nail is covered. Finish with gel top coat.
