from NAIL UP! May 2012.



Gel Colours: Beige, White, Pink, Purple, Blue
Others: Red cross studs

How To Make


Step 1: Apply a layer of base gel and dry. Apply a layer of beige over the entire nail and dry.

Step 2: Apply a second layer of beige over the entire nail and dry. Take care to cover the edges of the nail too.

Step 3: Use white gel to draw curved white lines as shown. Do not dry at this step.

Step 4: Using pink, purple and blue gels, draw lines in between the white lines as shown.

Step 5: Using a clean, thin brush, draw strokes through all the coloured lines down towards the tip of the nail. This will drag the colours to form a peacock tail pattern. Dry.

Step 6: Apply a layer of top gel and stick on the red cross stud as shown. Apply a layer of sealing gel to complete.
