Summer/Festival Nail Art Tutorial

Summer/Festival Nail Art Tutorial

Posted by Abbi Webster on

We visited a local nail salon to discuss all things nail art, and of course get our nails did!¬†ūüíÖTake 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¬†‚ú®

Step 1: 

Begin by removing all existing nail polish.

Step 2:

Next, remove cuticles and skin around the nail to get a smooth, clean surface.

Step 3: 

Then apply acrylic to fill in the gaps of growth at the bottom of the nail.

Step 4:

Next pick your desired shape - we chose tapered square (obvs)!

Step 5:

Now for the fun part!¬†Apply 5 different gel colours lightly across the 5 nails. After applying 2 layers they blended like a dream¬†ūüėć

Step 6:

To achieve the ultimate blend, add a top coat to seal in all the colours.

Step 7:

Now for the chrome! Apply gold chrome over the top of all the nails.

Step 8:

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.

Step 9:

After curing the nails under UV light, wipe off the remaining foil to reveal the gorgeous star detail!

Step 10:

After a top coat and UV light one more time, these are the results! #nailartgoals
