I used @youngnailsinc cover beige to create the foundation nail. This set me up to use Mission Control Gel Paint for a multi color background. You’ll notice that I use color on both ends of the brush to make the ombré effect faster. 🎨 This was the background effect to the basket weave design.
As soon as you build out the free edge, the surface will be soft enough to get the Mylar to stick. I use the back of the brush to push in the pieces that are sticking out. You’ll notice I go back for a tiny amount of wet acrylic so I can get the confetti pieces to stick. This is going to be the perfect set up before I encase it with @youngnailsinc Core Natural.
This is real time application on @youngnailsinc Core White. I’m not concerned about my upper arch at this point. I’m only concerned about a tight application around the body and creating the right length. This also sets me up for my Mylar application. The body is still spongy which will allows me to embed the Mylar into the structure. This is perfect set up to cap the structure with Speed Clear.
Let me show you in real time how I applied the red free edge. I had to use 2 pearls to complete the thickness and length desired. ✌🏼
