When it comes to stocking your nail art toolbox, Christrio Nail Ink is a must. Available in nine essential hues, this highly pigmented ink is perfect for creating marble, watercolor, ombré and even smoky effects. Plus, Nail Ink doesn’t require curing and boasts a speedy dry time for faster and easier nail art.
1) Apply peach Diamond Gloss No. 43 to the entire nail. Cure.
2) Carefully apply a small amount of Nail Ink in Hot Pink. Start at the base and move the brush toward the free edge.
3) Apply a few small drops of Clear Nail Ink over the nail to dilute the Hot Pink and create a subtle marble effect. Allow it to dry. Then, use Liner Brush No. 8 to paint veins across the nail with Black Stamping and Painting Gel. Flash cure for 30 seconds.
4) Accent the veins with champagne Glitter Painting Gel No. 5. Cure. Then, finish with PolyShine Top Gel, and cure.
