We visited a local nail salon to discuss all things nail art, and of course get our nails did! 💅Take a look below to see a step by step guide of how to get the perfect nails for the summer festival season! Complete with acrylic infills, rainbow fade and chrome stars ✨
Begin by removing all existing nail polish.
Next, remove cuticles and skin around the nail to get a smooth, clean surface.
Then apply acrylic to fill in the gaps of growth at the bottom of the nail.
Next pick your desired shape - we chose tapered square (obvs)!
Now for the fun part! Apply 5 different gel colours lightly across the 5 nails. After applying 2 layers they blended like a dream 😍
To achieve the ultimate blend, add a top coat to seal in all the colours.
Now for the chrome! Apply gold chrome over the top of all the nails.
Then use a denting tool to press in star shapes to the nail and a small brush to make them look like they are twinkling.
After curing the nails under UV light, wipe off the remaining foil to reveal the gorgeous star detail!
After a top coat and UV light one more time, these are the results! #nailartgoals
