How To Make


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

Step 2: Apply a second layer of yellow over the entire nail. Draw random dots over the top 2/3 of the nail using the pink, purple and white gels. Do not dry at this step.

Step 3: Drag a clean brush across the dots to create a marbled effect. Be careful not to overdo it!

Step 4: Apply a layer of top gel and stick the gold holograms in a line as shown, to create a reverse French manicure. Dry.

Step 5: Stick on the Rococo-style sticker at the base of the nail.

Step 6: Apply a layer of top gel and stick on the gold holograms to form a dotted pattern. Stick on the ribbon stud as shown. Apply a layer of sealing gel to complete.
