How to do this nail art

First I applied a nail polish.Β πŸ’…πŸ’¦ I used a pink gel nail polish but you can use any color that you like. β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œΒ Then I cured it under a uv/led lamp for 60 seconds.Β πŸ’‘ Next I used a clear non stick gel top coat.Β πŸ’§ This is very important since without it the next step wont work. After applying the gel top coat on all of the nails I cured the nails again for 60 seconds.Β πŸ’…πŸ’‘

Next I used a mermaid pearl powder by born pretty. 🐚✨ This powder is so cute. 😍 Here’s how it works. You rub it on top of the gel top coat and it will give your nails a beautiful pearly finish. πŸ’–Β The easiest way to apply it is with a spongy tip of a disposable eye shadow applicator. Basically it works the same as the nail chrome powder. But instead of making the nails look like mirrors this powder makes them look like pearls. I got it on ebay for super cheap.Β βœŒοΈπŸ˜„



Once the mermaid pearl powder is on the nails it’s time to apply another coat of clear non-stick gel top coat. If you are happy with this look and don’t want to add rhinestones then you can just cure the nails and you’re done. πŸ’‘βœ”οΈΒ The nails will already look nice and neat. However, if you want to apply rhinestones to your nails πŸ’ŽπŸ˜Β this is what you do.

How to apply rhinestones on nails

After applying the last coat of clear gel top coat don’t cure it. 😳 “Wait what? Did I hear that right?” Yes, you did. The reason we don’t want to cure it yet is because first we want to apply rhinestones. πŸ˜ƒπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽΒ They need to go right on top of the wet gel top coat. πŸ’§Β Arrange them on your nail as you’d like.Β πŸ’… You can:

  • put one crystal on each nail
  • put several rhinestones at the base of each nail like I did
  • cover all of your nails with rhinestones completely
  • use rhinestones on one accent nail

Whatever you want goes. Let your creativity spread its wings and fly.Β πŸ•ŠπŸŒˆπŸ¦‹

Once the rhinestones are applied it’s time to cure the nails. πŸ•πŸ’‘πŸ’…Β The suggested time is 60 seconds but I like to add another 30 seconds. Just to make sure the rhinestones are really secured in place.Β πŸ‘Œ

And that is it. πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰Β The beauty of gel nails is that you don’t even need to wait for them to dry. Cure them and you’re done.

OMG! 😍 Your nails look so fabulous! Did you do them yourself?Β πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—
