So, this is what I used and how I did these nails:
I used Shellac, Gel Paint and fine nail art brushes
Apply base and colour, curing as directed.
Apply a lighted colour to a makeup sponge. Here I have cut up a large one but you can get small ones. I actually think something which is not so compact in structure might work better.
Dab on the colour where you want it and cure.
Using a fine brush apply the gel paint as you like. I found the tip of using a pad moistened with isopropyl alcohol helpful for neatening up the lines.
I found the gel paint really manageable, it did not run, and i did all five nails without needing to cure. When you are happy with your design, cure.
Apply top coat, remove inhibition layer and apply oil.
I hope that you like these. Have you tried using a sponge to apply gel polish, or lacquer?
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!!!
