how to do rose quartz nails

Rose quartz nails have taken over Instagram. Mimicking the appearance of the pink-hued crystal of the same name, the style may seem complicated to execute—but it’s not! The trick, says Los Angeles-based nail artist Katie Masters (@nailthoughts), is to be mindful of your materials. “The look calls for a very sheer pink gel polish and an opaque white art gel,” she says, noting that the subtle style is perfect for those clients who have been hesitant to try nail art. (You can also tempt clients with the crystal’s lore; it’s known for attracting and keeping love, as well as helping to heal a broken heart.) Here, Masters shares her technique for creating this must-have look.
