Step 1: Start with an acrylic base in a pale pink shade (NSI Rose Blush).
Step 2: Apply Gelish Black Shadow to the ring finger and thumb. Apply Gelish Arctic White to the index finger.
Step 3: Outline the nail in black using a thin brush.
Step 4: Create French nails as usual, but fill in some of the moons as well.
Step 5: For the thumbnail, using the micro brush create a V-shape with Gelish Arctic White.
Step 6: Place gems around the half moon of the middle finger. On the index finger, place a larger gem in the center and place smaller ones around the sides.
Step 7: Matte the ring finger using the NSI Sand Turtle Soft Buffer, then start to create a 3-D bow with your NSI White Acrylic Powder and your Crystal Nails A3 Brush.
Step 8: Done!
