How to Create Gradient Nails With An Airbrush Gun

Airbrushing is back and here, Los Angeles-based tech Robert Nguyen (@nailguytv on Instagram) shows how he uses the tool to create a gradient design.



Step 1:

1 Fill the airbrush tool with neon yellow airbrush gel paint. To apply the color, angle the airbrush a few inches from the nail. To ensure smooth color
application, glide the airbrush from side to side. Cure. Repeat and cure again.

Step 2:

Spray a generous amount of pink airbrush gel paint at the free edge. Then, using only air, spray the free edge; this will cause the gel paint to move toward the center of the nail, creating a splattered effect. Cure.

Step 3:

To achieve a gradient, lightly spray purple airbrush gel paint at the free edge. Cure. To finish, apply gel top coat and cure.
