Thank you. The design on the accent nails is created using the 'bubble technique'. You need a dotting tool and put a small amount of your gel top coat aside on paper from a nail form or foil.

Apply two coats of Sheek White and cure. Then apply a thin coat of a contrasting color (here I used Sugar Daddy from Gelish Candyland). Without curing, use your dotting tool to apply clear dots over the color using different pressure. The top coat will push the color layer out and reveal the color underneath. Once your happy with the size and definition of your bubbles cure that layer. Then apply top coat. Cure, cleanse.

It also works really well over a color fade.

This one is Bella's Vampire over a neon yellow and pink fade.

A few tips are to work quickly applying the top coat and give it 5 secs or so to give the top coat time to push the color out before you finally cure

Thank you lexibunny. If I'm extending the nail bed, I like to use the reverse technique.

Prep the natural nails. Apply nail forms. Dehydrate the natural nail with PhBond and apply Pro Bond, which is a non-acid primer.

Using Bliss Pink Acrylic, create a thin extention flush to the natural nail. As the acrylic sets pinch in the c-curve.

After the acrylic has dried, remove the forms. Then I use a cover pink to extend the nail bed and create the smile line. Make sure your corners are even on each side of the smile.

Apply your color to the free edge. Here I used 'Flint' from the Prisms Collection.

I cap the whole nail in clear acrylic to fill in the cuticle area and create the upper arch. After the acrylic has dried I shape the surface and outline.

Finally appy Top it Off. Cure, cleanse and apply cuticle oil.

I LOVE your Nails!!! its so nice and I love Harmony products especially their gel nails polishes... how did you accomplish that ring finger design on the fourth finger? if you don't mind sharingBlushConfused
Thank you!

I prep the nail and apply Foundation. I applied a basic 2 color fade, neon orange and neon pink, and cured as usual. Then apply a thin, even layer of Bella's Vampire. Without curing, I take top coat and dot it on to the dark color. This creates the bubble effect. After a few seconds cure it. Then apply Top it Off. Cure again. Cleanse and apply Nourish cuticle oil.
